Welcome to May at Bumbles

Welcome to May – at last, our countryside is full of blossom, bluebells and it’s looking very green everywhere. Signs of new life here at Bumbles when we spotted some lodgers in the shrubs – a bird’s nest with 3 chicks! It’s a wonderful time of year to get out in the garden with these very light evenings. Our plant area is really well stocked, looking very colourful with lots of variety, including grafted vegetable plants, perfect for maximising your yield. We have added a selection of BBQs to our range of outdoor furniture and we have fresh asparagus on offer, which has inspired some specials in the coffee shop.

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!
