General Purpose

Native trees and shrubs have a place in UK gardens and some are familiar favourites either as full blown trees or clipped plants; e.g. box (Buxus sempervirens), English yew (Taxus baccata), holly (Ilex aquifolium), hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), beech (Fagus sylvatica), Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and silver birch (Betula pendula).

Others are particularly useful in larger gardens, especially those backing onto British countryside where obviously exotic trees would look out of place. While some lend themselves to coppicing – hazel (Corylus avellana) and many willow species (Salix) – or are important species in mixed native hedging; hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna), blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) and elder (Sambucus nigra).

Summer Flowering Bulbs

For a garden full in bloom in the summer months of the year, plant Summer flowering bulbs. These colorful flowers will give your garden, pattio or balcony a bright and stylish look.


You'll find our range of summer flowering bulbs and all the accessories you need, in our garden centre in Croxted.


Some popular types of summer flowering bulbs include dahlias, gladioli, lilies, cannas, and caladiums. Dahlias are known for their large, colourful blooms that come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Gladioli produce tall spikes of flowers in a range of colours, while lilies have elegant, fragrant blooms.


Cannas are known for their tropical-looking foliage and bright flowers, and caladiums are prized for their vibrant foliage.

Spring Planting

It’s always best to start small and work upwards if this is your first attempt. Learning which vegetables to pick and how to tend to them is easier than you might imagine. There is also the added bonus that it is an activity that could be shared with children or grandchildren, so you’re getting the next generation out in the garden and having fun too! Let’s get started with some easy steps.

Picking Your Location:


There are three essentials when considering your location:-

Sunshine: soil temperature depends on sunshine. More sunshine equates to light and heat which in turn will allow your vegetables to thrive.

Water: choose a location that is close to a source of water as you will have to give them a drink in dry spells, especially tomatoes or peppers or any other warm-season vegetable.

Quality soil: not all, but most vegetables, do better in moist, well-drained soil which is rich in organic matter.
