We have a selection of spring flowering bulbs now in stock. This is the right time to plant bulbs and you can sit back and enjoy them come Spring.
As the days shorten lots of our perennials and shrubs have lost their lustre. The garden can look tired and dreary. Autumn time is however a great time to get stuck into the garden chores. Remember the time you invest in the garden now you reap ten-fold next spring and summer. Now is a great time to plant spring bulbs, and spring bedding such as wallflowers, polyanthus and spring pansies. Tidy your perennials, removing dead stems clear up fallen leaves and compost them. Plant shrubs, roses, hedging and trees to give them the best possible start.
It doesn’t all have to be about next spring however. Here are a few of the best trees for gardens to give you autumn interest.
