March News

The weather is turning, and at least we have had some welcome rain, even if it does come with a bitterly cold wind. I am sure that it will give us some surprises by the end of the month.

Dont forget to keep feeding and caring for your Garden wildlife this month. We have all you need here at Bumbles.



  • Baby Plants are now in stock, a lovely range of Fuchsias, some of which will NOT be available later so grab them NOW.

  • Early flowering and evergreen Clematis are available now.

  • Erysimums - Which are perennial wallflowers are now in stock. We hold a large range consisting of 8-9 different varieties, all of which have a long flowering period starting in early summer and flowering through until late summer. Most have a lovely, charming "Cottage garden" scent.

  • New faces at Bumbles this summer. We are very happy and lucky to be helped this year by Dorril, Chris, Reu, Chloe and Emma.




March is a busy month for gardeners in the greenhouse.

  • Start sowing Beetroot, Lettuces and Salad leaves, Peppers, Tomatoes and Broad Beans.

  • Plant out Rhubarb and Strawberries into the vegetable garden. We stock Rhubarb forcers to bring on an early crop.

  • Plant up pots, tubs and hanging baskets towards the end of the month in the greenhouse, so they are full of colour in May ready for final positioning.

  • Plant up lily Bulbs in pots now.

  • Potatoes want to be in the ground by the end of the month.

  • Worth thinking about a Waterbutt  - if the summer turns dry there is no point getting one then. Collect the rainfall now from your greenhouse/conservatory roofs, ready for a dry summer. William has managed to get some on a deal so it is well worth having a chat with him.
