Welcome to August at Bumbles

Welcome to August and this is the time to sit back and enjoy the sunshine, before autumn arrives (all too soon!). This is a perfect time of year to prune Wisteria – we have a video from Ross to take you through how to do this, visit the ‘wisteria summer pruning’ page to view. We have all you need to keep your pool and spa clean and sparkling this summer as well as a lovely range of patio and garden furniture.

This is a wonderful time of year to get out and visit one of the many gardens of Kent open to the public, a great day out as well as some inspiration for your own patch. And don’t forget to please ask a member of Bumbles’ staff if you’d like some advice or if you are looking for some planting ideas.

Look forward to seeing you soon at Bumbles and remember to please call us if you are looking for something in particular – we’d love to help!


A Ramble around the plant area with Ross - I can't believe he missed all the wonderful salvias!
