Pip's Top Tip

It is best to use fresh compost each year to pot up your existing and new plants as this minimises risk of pests and diseases being carried over- it will also provide fresh nutrients to replace those that have been used up.

Found something you love, but can’t fit it in to your car? Don’t worry, help is at hand.

Our driver Colin and his team will be happy to deliver for you. We only use our own vans, not outside couriers, so the service is only available locally.
