What a strange few weeks it has been, sunshine, chilly winds then pouring with rain, Coat on, coat off isn't fun anymore. On the plus side, our plant area makes us smile every day! pink_butterfly_left.pngBeautiful shades of colour to greet us on those dull mornings. Our little Grow Your own area is doing just as well.

For those that are unaware, back in our April newsletter we told you about one of our lovely loyal customers Sue Clegg. Sue took part in the Leeds Castle Pink Ribbon walk to raise money for Breast Cancer. We are very proud to say that Sue completed the walk in 4 hours 10 minutes and we would like to take this time to Congratulate her and Thank all those that supported Sue raising money for this fantastic cause. WELL DONE SUE!! For those that still want to donate you can do so here.

We are also very proud to say that we are sponsoring Sissinghurst Country Day. Sunday 1st September in the park at Sissinghurst Castle. This will be a fun filled day for all the family. Not to be missed. For more information click here.

Plant of the month


A beautiful choice for the garden. These perennials provide an amazing show of colour. We have many varieties in store "Pillow Talk", "Raspberry Sundae" and the picture here is "Bowl of Beauty" taken by our plant area supervisor Oliver. These are happy in well drained soil and can tolerate full sun. A definite must for the garden.
