Welcome to June at Bumbles

Welcome to June – the month of long days and light evenings to be enjoyed in the garden. A time to sit on the patio and enjoy the fruits of your labour, the magnificent colourful blooms from all those bedding plants you installed… but if you haven’t got round to that yet, come and see us as we still have a selection of bedding, it’s not too late! We also have some lovely hanging baskets, including Begonia Bonfire – wonderfully bright red-orange blooms, flowering right through to the autumn.  We have added a selection of BBQs to our range of outdoor furniture, visit the coffee shop to enjoy some ice-creams specials in this warmer weather.

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!
