Grow your own Vegetables, Fruit and Herbs

Why buy all your fruit and vegetables from the supermarket when you can grow most of it yourself? Even if you only have a window sill, you can still grow strawberries, salads and herbs.

Vegetables

You can either grow vegetables from seed from February onwards or buy seedlings in late spring or early summer. Beans, peas, courgettes and tomatoes are all a good starting point for the novice grower. Seeds by Franchi and Suttons are always in stock.

Fruit bushes and trees

A full range of fruit bushes can be found in our soft fruit section of the garden centre. Fruit trees are available for most of the year but the tree section is at its best in October. Most fruit trees such as apples and cherries can provide beautiful spring blossom. We have fruit trees to suit every garden, including “Minarettes“ which are ideal for patios and balconies. We sell everything you need to give your fruit the best start. Compost, Fertilisers and tree supports are always in stock.

Not sure which fruit tree will suit your garden? Come in and speak to our knowledgeable staff for advice.

Herbs

Herbs are a great addition to every garden. They can be grown in the ground, in pots and even on a window sill. Most of our herbs are English grown and available all year round. They’re ideal for a sunny border and look great in pots. Our range usually includes chives, fennel, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme as well as some more unusual and interesting herbs such as Vietnamese coriander, lovage and angelica. If you are planting your herbs into a pot or window box you can also plant salad leaves and edible flowers with them such as violas.
