Time to Grow Your Own Vegetables

Late April is the perfect time to grow your own vegetables, with the soil having warmed a bit and the sun coming out. The plant centre here at Woodside is full of everything to start your vegetable patch off, no matter how big it is.

We have a really good supply of the following currently available:

  • baby vegetable plants for you to grow on (including leeks)
  • tomato plants
  • strawberry plants
  • herbs
  • seed potatoes.


There’s something to suit all gardener’s requirements in our newly covered compost area. We think we may have the biggest range of composts, barks and soils in the area, including the popular Jack’s Magic Multi-purpose compost. We have a range of award winning peat free compost from Dalefoot Compost and more peat free compost from New Horizons  and Westland.  Also in stock is the traditional John Innes range of soil based composts and peat based multi-purpose compost.

Fertilisers, and other garden treatments

We have extended the shelf space allocated to garden feeds, including vegetable feed. We have our best ever range of weedkillers, insecticides and fungicides, including many organic options. Just let us know what you are looking for, and we’ll probably have it!

Garden Furniture

Once you have done all that gardening you deserve to sit down in the sun and enjoy it. We have some beautiful “zero maintenance” garden benches available just now in a choice of 4 colours.  New stock of wooden garden furniture is due in anytime now.

If you’ve not visited Woodside in the last few weeks, you’ll notice a big difference to our facilities and in the amount of stock we have available. I think you might be surprised on how much we have done in the way of improvements (which are still on-going), so do come and visit.

Enjoy the sun and get into your garden to grow your own vegetables for you to enjoy throughout the summer.
