New Year at Woodside

Happy New Year to all and welcome to 2024 at Woodside Garden and Plant Centre. We have already started the changes for 2024, so have closed the Birdhouse Tearoom for a few days whilst we have a new floor put in and a redecorate completed. You will be able to see what it looks like at our Woodside Winter Warmer lunches, which start next week, at our Kailyard Lunch on 19th January or at our Burns Lunches.

With the turn of the year we always start looking forward to summer in the garden and look for those milestones that take us through the winter. January is marmalade-making time and our Seville oranges have already nearly sold out. Other early year highlights which will be in stock very soon are:

  • Forced rhubarb from Yorkshire
  • Seed potatoes
  • Onion sets.

Those of you who are eagle-eyed might also have spotted bulbs coming up and even the first snowdrops in flower.

Big Garden Birdwatch

The Big Garden birdwatch takes place over the 26th to 28th January  – we have a good range of bird food and feeders, so you should have no problem stocking up to help the birds through the winter and enjoy watching them on your feeders.
