I have to say I was not aware that there are so many varieties! It is well worth a visit to Brondesbury Garden Centre as Neal, Gethin and Rebecca are so very knowledgeable and helpful and will certainly help you select what is right for you.
Don’t forget the other veg. They have a good selection of Onions and Shallots and an amazing choice of vegetable seed including the renowned Italian Veg Seed - Franchi

This is the time to get your lawnmower and other garden machinery serviced or indeed replaced. Gethin in particular is extremely helpful and knowledgeable – in fact we bought our lawnmower from Gethin last year after a lot of discussion on what would be right for our garden which is on a hill. The machine we chose suited us fine and in fact Hubby now enjoys mowing the lawn. Result! As mowing the lawn used to fall to me!
If you have a large vegetable plot why not consider a Tiller – New stock has just arrived in.
Don’t forget whilst the garden is springing back into life the birds also need your help as they are finding their partners ready to nest for the next generation. You will find a great selection of Bird Seed and fat balls along with a good choice of bird feeders.
So if you are keen on gardening do pop along to Brondesbury Garden Centre in Cardigan – Opposite Tesco, you will be glad you did!
