February Update from G-Scapes
As we head into Feburary the weather is starting to feel a lot more seasonal, with cold frosty starts and potential ice and snow on the way...but before we get too depressed with that, take a look below at some spring colour to cheer you up for the months ahead.
Don’t forget Valentines Day this month - it’s on Tuesday 14th. We have some great gifts for gardeners!
Summer Flowering Bulbs are now in stock, and now is the time to buy for planting in late February and early March. Choose from our range of ’Dinnerplate size’ Dahlias,
Blooming Begonias for your baskets and Fragrant Lilies. For those of you with larger displays, try our Extra Value Bulbs - £3.99 a pack or Multibuy offer of 3 packs for £10.
If you’re after something unusual, try an Elephant Lily. A very large bulb (which looks like an Elephant’s foot!), producing Pinky/White flowers on stalks around 4ft high. Plant these in March - limited availability at £2.99 per bulb.
New In Stock
New for 2012 are a range of Plastic Planters from Stewarts. Lightweight & in a range of styles and colours, these make a great value alternative to Terracotta or Stone Pots.
All are pre-drilled and many have an authentic stone-feel finish.
We are also expecting our range of Kinderplants - young baby plants, in early February.
Start these off in the warm for a splash of colour later in the summer. Other deliveries expected this month include David Austin Roses, Camellias, Rhododendrons (right) & many more plants besides. Plus our new range of Wooden Furniture will be in too!
Chelsea Flower Show
Tickets for this are selling well and we have only around 30 left from almost 100 reserved. The dates are Thursday 24th and Friday 25th May, and tickets are £79 each. We predict this will be a sellout - so if you’d like to come, get yours booked today!
We are also looking at coach trips to Kew Gardens and Westonbirt Arboretum (during the summer and autumn months). To register your interest, please let us know.
Ring 01543 401032
Then as soon as we have more details on dates and prices, we can contact you.
