In The Shop

Seeds & Bulbs

Onion and shallot sets, garlic, seed potatoes and summer-flowering bulbs - including lots of dahlias - are all in stock now. 

This year we have smaller bags (paper bags) of onions and shallots at just £1 so you can try different varieties without having to buy loads.

Seeds and bulbs come from Kings Seeds : quality vegetable and flower seeds, Suffolk herbs and green manures. Their range of fragrant sweet peas is particularly sought-after, and their seeds have a reputation for having a good germination rate.

Wildflower seeds are available in different sizes and mixes, including Seedball tins which are fabulous as gifts.

Wildlife gardening

Here at the Plant Centrewe are very keen on wildlife, and stock a great range of bird tables, bird feeders, bird and hedgehog food, bird boxes, bug hotels and hedgehog homes.

We advise customers to include as many winter-flowering shrubs and plants in the garden as possible, to extend the season for bees to gather nectar, and to keep other insects about for birds to feed on.

Staff are always happy to discuss ideas for making your garden more attractive to wildlife, and we offer a range of different wildflower meadow seed mixes.
