Give your lawn a boost!

It's time to prepare your lawn for the Autumn/Winter season.  Regenerate the health of the grass by giving a little attention to the roots and plant structure.  To achieve this, Evergreen Autumn 2 in 1 is the solution:  it strengthens the roots and kills moss.

Apply mid-September to November.  Apply in fair weather, when the soil is moist and the grass dry and frost-free.  New lawns - only apply when well established (usually after 3 months).  Results - toughens up the grass to withstand a harsh winter, stimulates healthy root growth and kills moss.

 

Spooky visitors - selling fast!

Our fantastic range of pottery Halloween ornaments are selling fast - one they are gone, they're gone!  From grinning pumpkins and skulls, to not-so-scary ghosts, you can choose a long-lasting decoration that will look good for years to come!  They are hollow and open underneath, so you can put a tealight inside for a glowing effect, and these pumpkins won't rot! 

Hanging Baskets and Tubs

Who says Autumn has to be dull and dreary?!  We don't!  Just look at the stunning display of tubs and wall baskets that we have for sale RIGHT NOW!! 

Also DON'T FORGET that Abbey Garden Centre and our friendly shrub team staff will be more than happy to plant up your pots or hanging baskets for you, to your specification and choice, all year round, for FREE (just a nominal charge for the compost used)
