NOVEMBER 2020 NEWSLETTER

COMING SOON - CHRISTMAS TREES & DECEMBER FUNDRAISER
YES, that time of year is already approaching! We are currently busy preparing our greenhouse for the season of holly and ivy and all things sparkly! More details will be revealed soon - look out for updates on our social media channels and website.
We expect a small selection of potted Christmas trees to be available from 16th November. We will then have our full range of premium, British grown, cut, Christmas Trees available from Saturday 28th November, including a range of slimline trees - perfect for smaller houses and tighter spaces.
Nordmann Fir, Fraser Fir, Noble Fir and Norway Spruce varieties available, in a range of sizes from 3ft to 8ft. Prices start from £19. We will also stock a selection of Christmas Tree stands.
A huge THANK YOU to all those who visited and donated to our fundraising pumpkin trail at the end of October. We were overwhelmed with the support we received. £830 was raised for Feed the Homeless Bristol - THANK YOU!
For those of you who missed it, here are a few photos...
DEVELOPMENTS ON THE NURSERY
NEW CUSTOMER TOILET - NOW OPEN!
FINALLY, after months of work (and delays) our new customer toilet is complete and open for...business! This new toilet is located to the right-hand-side of the greenhouse exit.
NEW CACTI & SUCCULENT HOUSE
Located in our greenhouse, we now have a Cacti & Succulent house!
BULLDOG TOOLS - NOW IN STOCK
Established in 1780, Bulldog Tools is a British manufacturer of gardening and agricultural tools based in Wigan, Greater Manchester. We now stock a small selection of their Evergreen tools range which we believe strikes a good balance of price and reliable quality. This includes garden spades and forks, hand tools, secateurs, pruning tools and rakes.

We are fully stocked on RSPB wild bird seed and bird feeders (peanut and seed feeders), as well as mealworms, suet balls and 'buggy' nibbles.
We also stock Brambles Hedgehog Food.
WINTER POTTED PLANTS
You'll find a few ideas for potting up winter plant pots in our greenhouse (until the Christmas trees take over at the end of November), with suggestions for texture and colour, as well as a variety of pots and containers.
