Bumbles Plant Centre

After a late start to the spring the summer now seems to want to keep going. As always with our weather there are winners and losers but are we imagining it or are there more butterflies around this year?

A little rain every now and then is helping the garden so take the chance on nice days to just sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour with friends and family.

Please follow us on Twitter @BumblesPC and "Like" us on FaceBook.


August has been a busy month here at Bumbles Plant Centre and we're looking forward to a fun-filled September too.

We've got our SPRING BULBS in stock ready for you lucky gardeners including some stunning varieties of those stalwarts of the spring beds daffodils, narcissus, tulips and crocus.

We've also got some really interesting alternatives. How about "Muscari Peppermint". It'll provide the usual show of blue flowers in April but with a wonderful fragrance. We've got a host of Alliums for you including a few purple stunners (especially good in a group) as well as snowdrops (you'll want to get them in soon), Anemeone Blanda and much more.

Sissinghurst Scarecrow

Sissinghurst Country Day

We are also really looking forward to Sissinghurst Country Day on Sunday 1st September. It's taking place in the park at Sissinghurst Castle and Bumbles Plant Centre are sponsoring and will be judging the Scarecrow competition which will be fun.

Let's hope the weather holds for what promises to be a fun filled day for all the family. Come along and say "Hi" to Jeremy and Blaise (the judges) and have a great day out. Not to be missed!

We have a really interesting range of ornamental grasses in stock right now.

Ornamental grasses work well to enhance any border providing green, red or even a variegated backdrop to other flowering plants.

These hardy perennials can really look striking at this time of year with their tall flower heads waving in the breeze, or in small mounds giving strong colour.

Come into Bumbles and see our display.

SPECIAL OFFERS (while stocks last!).

3 litre perennials 5.99 or 3 for £15, very popular offer at the moment and great value

6 box plants in pack for £9.99

Small cyclamen only £1.99 each or 6 for £10



Oliver has trimmed back all our topiary box so they'll look good all winter! These slow growing plants will only need an occasional trim to ensure they keep their shape.

  • Hedges can be trimmed back and they'll probably be fine all winter.

  • Time to purchase spring flowering bulbs like tulips, crocus, narcissi, daffodils.

  • If summer bedding has lost its lustre, plant up some winter pansies, violas and cyclamen

  • Weeding after the rain is MUCH easier as you can get the roots out easily

  • Once they start be sure to crop those runner beans regularly and they'll carry on well into autumn
