The first of the sweet peas are available now (Galaxy Mixed, Giant Cut Flower Mixed, Heritage Mixed, Old Spice Mixed, Royals Mixed, Spencer Mixed), and more and more bulbs are starting to show their colours. The snowdrops have just finished flowering, which means it is the best time of the year to plant them!

We also have a limited number of Rose 'Mother's Day' shrubs for a present that can be enjoyed for years to come!
We are open 11am to 5pm on Sunday, and 10am to 5pm the rest of the week.
When we reopen in a few weeks we will need some extra help!

Weather permitting we will reopen for a new season in mid-February with another great selection of Suffolk-grown plants!
If you can't wait to get your gardening fix, take a trip to our parent nursery, Katie's Garden, just east of Ipswich. Highlights there include bareroot hedging, several hundred freshly-potted Roses and thousands of potted spring bulbs; more stocks of fruit and ornamental trees will be available soon.
