Pollinator-Friendly Plants.....

 
Throughout the year we sell a small range of plants that are very beneficial to our pollinator friends, and that are normally only available at events. Our plants are grown in peat-free compost and without the use of harmful pesticides.

We use new taupe coloured pots, which are fully recyclable through your kerbside recycling scheme. Previously this has not been possible with the black plastic plant pots. Our plants are grown in peat-free compost and without the use of harmful pesticides.

Throughout the year there will be different varieties of plants available. We will regularly update the website with information. Please also feel free to contact us for details of new plants.

Details of new stock will be sent via email (please subscribe to receive regular news updates), and also will be posted on our social media sites.

Please let us know if there are any varieties of pollinator-friendly plants that you would like to see available. We are constantly researching and trying out new varieties.
