Welcome to June at Bumbles

Welcome to June,  as the summer solistice fast approaches, we hope you have been able to make the most of these long evenings in the garden! We had a very busy month in May with bedding seeming to fly out of the door… Would you like to send us some photos of your patio pots, planters and flower beds? We’d love to see what you’ve been up to with your Bumbles purchases, you can post photos on Facebook or email us. We still have a great choice of summer plants in stock and we are constantly adding to the variety of indoor and houseplants in our glasshouse – if you haven’t visited yet, do come and have a look and let us know what you think. 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 inspiration.

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!
