National Gardening Week

 
How fortuitous that National Gardening Week falls over the Easter weekend! With the beautiful weather we’ve had recently, there’s really no excuse not to get outside and spend an hour or two digging, planting, strimming and mowing! Depending on the space you have, why not plant up a few pots or give yourself a real project and get started with a vegetable patch? If you have no outside space, then get involved with the indoor garden scene which is growing, forgive the pun, all the time. Just a quick search on Pinterest or Instagram will give you lots of inspiration when it comes to bringing the outdoors in with house plants and terrariums.
 
We’ve caught the gardening bug recently and you’ll find our Farmshops are full of lovely things to give your home and your garden a springtime boost!
 
 

Henderson Rea
 
Jane Henderson and Martin Rea have created the perfect gift; scented bulbs that are beautifully packaged. Rather than cut flowers, why not give someone special bulbs that will keep going year after year? Selected for their beauty and fragrance, these Ranunculus bulbs are easy to plant and grow, producing beautiful large flowers.
The Gardener’s Year

Not quite sure where to start with your garden? Then spring is the time to find out! This beautifully illustrated book includes helpful ‘to do’ lists for each month so you can get the very best from your garden all year round.
 
 
 
Green and Blue 
 
Encourage wildlife into your garden with the range from Green and Blue. We love their innovative Birdball Belle Feeder, designed to allow small birds to feed whilst deterring bigger birds. We also love their contemporary concrete Beepot. The Beepot acts as a small bee hotel and planter, perfect for pollinator friendly plants.
 
 
Butterflybom
 
For the maverick gardener, we have the perfect solution!
Find Seedboms in our Farmshop now. The Butterflybom contains a nectar rich wildflower seed mix. Simply pull the pin and throw the ‘bom’ into any area of the garden that could do with brightening up. They are biodegradable so only the blooming flowers will be left behind!
