Preparing for the season ahead

We don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves, but before you know it, spring will be appearing just around the corner!

While August can be an unpredictable month, it’s the ideal time to start planning and preparing for the seasons ahead, whether that’s finding inspiration online, or mucking in and getting your garden ready for planting.
It’s the perfect time to plant winter favourites hellebores and magnolias and we have a great range of new seasons varieties in store now. And with spring just weeks away, this means an explosion of colour starts arriving in store, so get an instant pick me up to your garden and pots by planting pansies, snapdragons, lobelia and dianthus.
For those passionate about an edible garden this spring, now is the time to prepare by digging in generous helpings of compost and adding lime to improve the soil structure. If you’re new to gardening and don’t know where to start or what veges to try first, come on in and ask one of our friendly staff members, we’ll show you how easy it is to get started!  
Inside the store, we have lots of new product arriving to accessorise your home and living spaces.  We’re loving the current trend of bringing greenery indoors, and we have a gorgeous selection of houseplants available from $9.99.  A flowering plant, a glossy fiddle leaf fig, an elegant orchid or a cool cactus makes a statement in any indoor environment, it can brighten a work desk or provide a sunny burst of colour in your living area, and we have a fantastic selection in store. Or if fresh flowers are your thing, come in and see our wonderful in house florist Colin, who can tailor a beautiful posy or bouquet to your requirements.
If you’ve had enough of winter and are dreaming of a warmer climate then we have something for you! Make any purchase in store before August 21 and you could win a trip for two to the Garden Isle of Kaua‘i in Hawaii flying Hawaiian Airlines, with six nights’ accommodation at Hilton Garden Inn Kaua‘i Wailua Bay, 7-day car hire to discover the island including her beautiful botanical gardens, and a helicopter tour valued at over $6,000! Hurry in store now to get in the draw!
