It's a perfect time to be visiting one of your Garden Centres as we're packed full of colourful, exciting plants that would brighten any garden. We have freshly delivered plants from our larger pot bedding plants range that include Gazania, Cosmos, Petunia Explorer, Bacopa and much more.

If you haven't already planted your hanging baskets, containers, pots and tubs then you need to plant soon if you want a colourful display throughout summer.

Barbecue season in upon us as the weather hots up. If you're on the look out for a new barbecue than browse through our range here. We also stock all the accessories you need such as charcoal, gas, and cooking tools.

General Gardening Tips

•Dead-head your bedding plants to make sure you get a long flowering period. This will also encourage repeat flowering.

•Don't forget to water your containers and hanging baskets in periods of dry weather. You'll also need to keep and eye on your fruit and vegetables if you're growing any this year.

•Pests and diseases are most likely to attack your plants at this time of year. Be vigilant as the best form of protection is prevent a problem before it gets worse. Read our plant doctor page for more advice.

•Lawns need regular attention, so mow once a week. If your lawn is looking pale, apply a suitable lawn feed, and again don't forget to water in dry weather.

•Feeding your containerised plants will help them produce flowers throughout the season. We recommed using Miracle-Gro Plant Food.
