New season roses in Stock
Our plants and other garden supplies are continuing to sell quickly, so we are pleased to announce the following new arrivals.
We are pleased that after huge demand earlier in the year we have new season roses in stock. The current selection of roses for sale include:
- Fragrant Cloud, Hot Chocolate and Rhapsody in Blue, which are bush roses;
- a choice of roses with names suitable for present giving, such as Many Happy Returns, The Anniversary Rose, Warm Wishes, For You With Love and Golden 50th.
- Climbing Roses includes Arthur Bell, Compassion, Golden Showers, Handel, Iceberg Climbing, New Dawn and Starlight Express
You all just love your Hellebores, and last week’s batch sold out in no time at all. So we have fresh ones in this week, including Double Chocolate, Shades of Night, Double Cream Speckled, and Smokey Blue.
We also now have Gentians back in stock and the climbing Hydrangea petiolaris which is always very much in demand.
After recent frosts, I expect that many of the summer bedding plants have now finally given up. We have just had a fresh delivery of pansies, violas, bellis and primroses, all suitable for planting out now. We also have bulbs available in the shop to underplant your beds, borders and containers with to plan ahead for Spring colour. We’ve also just had a big delivery of mini cyclamen, as the last batch sold out very quickly. New this week are packs of 6 mini cyclamen which are excellent value at £12.99 per pack. Sinlge plants are £2.99 each, so it’s a good saving to buy the pack. These are suitable for patio planters and do even better in a cool indoor space such as a porch or unheated room. They are really stunning and would brighten up anyone’s day.
I’ve had another delivery of fruit trees and we now have pears back in stock after a few weeks without. Our varieties are Catillac, Concorde, Doyenne du Comice and Sensation. We’ve also got Medlars and Quince Vranja available again.
For those of you wanting to order bare rooted fruit trees our list is now ready and can be downloaded here.You can come in and place your order, or you can post it with a cheque, or email it with a contact number for us to call you back to obtain payment. Whichever suits you best.
Please note that we have taken peaches, nectarines and cherries off our bare rooted availability, as we feel these do better in our area as potted plants.
Bare Root Hedging:
Our bare rooted hedging list is also now ready and you can download it here.
Please note that the minimum quantity per variety is 5. You can place your orders with us in the same way as the fruit list.
If you have trouble opening any of these price lists please let me know and I can either email you in a different format, or you can pop into the shop and use a printed copy.
Compost sales continue to exceed expectations, and we are getting a new delivery in on Monday which will include Multipurpose with added John Innes, Peat-free Multipurpose, and John Innes numbers 1,2 & 3. We currently have in stock ericacous compost, farmyard manure and Dalefoot Potting Compost.
We’ve just had another delivery of logs and kindling for your open fire or stove. This is all locally and sustainable sourced, and is available in handy nets to neatly fit in the boot of your car.
Our fruit and veg sales continue to do well. We get two deliveries each week, on Tuesday and Friday lunchtimes, and we now have a big selection of fruit, vegetables and salad items available. This week’s highlights are UK Russet apples ( I tasted one a couple of days ago, and I think it’s the nicest thing I’ve eaten for ages!), local vine tomatoes, Jerusalem artichokes, enormous cauliflowers from Kelso, Conference Pears, also from Kelso, aubergines and leeks. new this week are quinces and sweet potatoes. We’ve increased the amount of baby salad potatoes. leeks and carrots as we ran out last week. Do tell your neighbours and friend about our fresh range, as the busier we are the more we can stock.
Whilst you are here stocking up on fruit, veg and plants why not have a hot bacon roll which are available again between 10 and 12 daily. We know they are appreciated by the hungry cyclists
