An important time of the year to make sure your bird feeders are well stocked, we have a great variety of feed including new ‘Chunky Dumplings’ suet cakes and Fat Ball Bunting, great for birds in the bush!  We have a new stock of bulbs in now, including Nerines, Dahlias, Begonias, Gladioli & Lilies – lovely for summer and autumn colour. For winter colour, we have pansies, cyclamen and fantastic mix and match offers on primulas, primroses & and polyanthus.  Don’t forget we are always here, so please ask a member of Bumbles’ staff if you’d like some advice or if you are looking for some planting inspiration.
