Spring Plant Sales 2021

Uncategorised
Are you ready for Spring? Then we have some good news for you as we have a selection of seasonal bulbs and bedding plants now ready for sale! Don’t let the rain put you off – it just means they won’t need watered in! 
 
This is quite a long post, but please read carefully as it contains all the details you need for ordering.
 
As we have said before, we don’t use heat or chemicals to force our plants to grow at any time of the year – we let them grow as naturally as possible. They don’t like to be rushed and are ready when they are ready! A lot of bedding plants may look more established and already be flowering, but these may struggle to thrive as they are usually imported from down south and haven’t had a chance to acclimatise to our cooler temperatures. Although many of our plants and bulbs are still in the green at the moment, buying them like this will make for stronger and longer lasting plants in the long run.
 
Government restrictions mean that we are not currently allowed to have customers and members of the public on site. Don’t worry though! We have all been here before, which means we hopefully have a better idea of what we need to do this time around and we will continue to do what is safe for everyone!
 
Our mixed boxes were hugely popular last year and we had great feedback on them, so we will be repeating these as our main product – but now in 2 sizes.
 
Small box = £10 (containing approx. 10 plants)
Large box = £20 (containing approx. 20 plants)
Both will have a variety of bulbs and bedding suitable for containers or planting in the ground. This is a fantastic way for us to sell them and for you to buy them. With us not being able to allow customers to come in and choose their own plants, by making up mixed boxes it is not only time saving for us, but it means we can offer them to you at a reduced price than they would be individually, making it great value to the customer!
 
We also have hyacinth bowls at £5, a selection of mixed planters made up starting at just £10 and some Azaleas at £6.50. (All subject to availability).
 
We will operate a “Click & Collect” style service the same as we did in 2020. Home deliveries are also available and delivery charges may apply. Unfortunately we don’t have an online web shop so if you would like to place an order for collection or delivery please phone the office on 01475 744516.
 
Please note: We are a small staff team and cannot always guarantee picking up messages by email or through Facebook, so we ask you to phone to speak to a member of staff directly. As we experienced last year, phone lines can get busy so please bear with us!
 
You will be able to discuss a day and time slot for collection and we ask you that when you arrive you please follow the instructions on signage in the car park. Please stick to your time slot as closely as possible, wear face masks and use the hand sanitizer provided. If other people are being served please wait back until they have returned to their car, it shouldn’t take us long to get to you.
 
Contactless card payment is preferred where possible or you can pay over the phone when ordering.
Thank you for supporting us as we look forward to another season seeing the gardens in our local community brightened up with Parklea plants!
