Mother's Day Cream Tea Offer - Sunday 26 March

In the Stewarts magazine "seventeenfortytwo" it mentions a 2 course Mother's Day Lunch for £13 - this was printed before we were purchased by Stewarts, and unfortunately only applies to Stewarts Christchurch and Broomhill locations, not Abbey.

HOWEVER, we CAN offer a Mother's Day Cream Tea for 2, for just £7.50, all day on Sunday 26 March.  Come along and spoil your Mum with home-baked scones, clotted cream, jam and piping hot tea!

(Hot Off the Press News - our Cafe is going to undergo HUGE changes in the coming months - new kitchen equipment, a second, new counter with self-serve hot food, and a whole new menu - watch this space for details on the improvements to come!  We are sure you will love it!)

FREE GIFT WRAP for Mother's Day!

Come along and have a look at our fabulous planters, pots and baskets that would put a smile on your Mum's face this Mother's Day!

If you spend over £15, gift wrapping is FREE!  (If under £15, gift wrapping costs £2.50)

Our homeware section has lots of lovely gift ideas too, from mugs, to pottery, books, stationary - come along and have a browse!

It's all change here!

There have been so many developments here at Stewarts Abbey Garden Centre, it's hard to keep up - there are contractors working hard inside and out, making improvements to the site!  Our most noticeable improvement to the outside is a new fence, which looks very smart, and our brand new sign is going up today, now the gusty winds of Storm Doris have subsided!

Inside, a lot of the store has been moved around, the floor has been re-painted, new shelving has gone in, the cottage is in the process of being re-painted and refreshed, new electrics and lighting are being installed, oh, and we all have brand new Stewarts uniforms!  Do come along and see all the changes - we love to keep our regular customers up to date with what's going on, and on that note, we'd like to say a big "thank you" for supporting us through all these developments! We have lots of new stock in; lines that we've not stocked before, and lots of offers to take advantage of!  So do drop by; we'd love to see you!

Amazing ancient Olive trees now in stock!


Just LOOK at these amazing ancient Olive trees we've had delivered!  The one on the left is HUGE, standing some 8 feet high, with the most amazing gnarly old trunk - it would look fabulous on a sunny patio!  On the right are 2 Olives that have been trained into a topiary style  surrounded by smaller olives.  We've never had anything as LARGE as these beauties before!!

Loyalty Card question .....

We've had a few questions about what will happen to Abbey's Loyalty Card, and the points that have been earned on it.  We can assure you that your points are safe, and will be transferred across to the new Privilege Card as soon as it's adopted completely.  Just bear with us whilst the "techy people" sort out all the fiddly stuff!  In the meantime, Privilege Card offers are open to EVERYONE - yay! :)

NEW IN - Blue Glass bird bath!

New in, this stunning blue glass bird bath is a work of art!  Made by the same people as the stunning poppy table, right, it really would look fabulous on a patio, and the water would be appreciated by the birds all year round!

 Both are only £19.99!


Large selection of thermal boots and wellington boots


We have an extensive range of Wellington boots and thermal boots now in.  The Premium welly boot in Navy is £19.99, the green reinforced toe boots are £27.99, Neoprene Wellingtons are £59.99, and traditional green welly boots are just £10.99.  The Thermal boots deserve a special mention - a tough rubber boot with a neoprene upper, which makes it extremely comfy, and has Thinsulate fleece insulation to ensure toasty toes!  These Thermal boots are £34.99, and really do work!

Boot stand, for 2 pairs or 4 pairs

Now you have a nice new pair of Wellington boots, you need somewhere to store them tidily!  Why not try this Boot Stand, in 2 sizes, one for 2 pairs and a Family Boot Stand that holds 4 pairs of boots.  It stores them upside down, to let the mud dry off the bottom of the boot, and to discourage creepy crawlies from using your boots as a home!  The 2 pair Boot Stand is £22.99 and the 4 pair Boot Stand is £42.00.

Clocks for the garden or conservatory


We have a variety of clocks suitable for the garden, including the very popular bird clocks, which flew (pardon the pun!) off the shelves last year!  Also a clock that incorporates a thermometer too, and also a barometer/thermometer, which is new this year.  Prices vary, from £9.99 upwards, depending on style. 

Realistic wood-effect stone sleepers!

Bob the Shed (he loves being called that!) is chuffed to bits with the new range of Meadowview stone that's come in - they are stone sleepers that look exactly like planks of wood, so realistic they even have pretend woodworm holes and wood knots in them!  So you get the effect of a wooden sleeper, but with the practicality and durability of stone!  Also wood-effect round stepping stones too!

Visit Soon for the best choice of All Types of Tree!

NEW IN!!!!  Fruit: On Various Rootstocks 

Pears, Quinces, Medlar, Apples, Cherries, Damsons, Gages Mirabelles, Plums etc.

Donation point for the Rainbow Centre

Abbey Garden Centre is pleased to announce that it is now a Donation Drop-off Point for the The Rainbow Centre, a charity in Fareham that supports children and adults with disabilities.  Just inside our main gates, on the left, next to Bob's shed, is a black wheelie bin, clearly labelled with the Rainbow Centre logo.  Please feel free to drop off bagged items, such as good quality clothes (especially ladies' evening wear), bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses, ornaments, books, CDs and DVDs,  games and puzzles, toys, bric-a-brack, in fact anything that can be sold to raise funds for such a worthwhile charity.  Click on the link here: read more about the fabulous things The Rainbow Centre achieves. 

Wet and Forget - selling fast!

This fabulous product is selling fast, as word is getting out at how GREAT it is at getting rid of mould, algae and lichen!  It is so simple to use - simply dilute in a garden sprayer, and apply to paving slabs, paths, the sides of pots, greenhouses, wooden fences, conservatories, boats, in fact anywhere where mould and algae collects.  Just look at the "before" and "after" photo below, to show the results that can be obtained!  Wet & Forget has a unique combination of biodegradable selective surfactants for moss, mould and gunge removal on any exterior surface. Each time it rains, this safe, cleansing combination reactivates to help remove the mould without any scouring or effort needed!  A large 5 litre concentrate bottle is £29.99, but diluted down makes up 30 litres of product.  

Abbey's Café - you can have our delicious breakfasts SOONER!


Due to high demand for our delicious, freshly cooked-to-order breakfasts, we are pleased to announce we are now serving at an earlier time of 9am Monday-Saturdays and 9.30am on Sundays.  So now your rumbling tummies won't have to wait so long for a tasty cooked breakfast - see you soon! 

A plea for BOOKS!!

BOOKS NEEDED!! A plea for help! As many of you know, our Café sells donated books for 50p each to raise money for various charities. Our current cause is Wave 105's Cash for Kids campaign, to help local children in our area, and we have so far raised an amazing £150 thanks to our generous customers! But we need MORE BOOKS to sell, as we are running very short! PLEASE have a look through your bookshelves and bring in any you no longer need/have read, and for 50p a book you could find some new ones!

Terrific Terracotta!

Just look at the HUGE range of Terracotta pots that we now have in!  All shapes and sizes, from small pots and saucers that are suitable for herbs, right up to enormous planters suitable for large shrubs or small trees such as Acers.  Also shallow, round bowls that suit Alpine plants, and ones with many holes that you can plant Strawberry plants, or Lobelia in!  Truly a pot for every occasion! 


A gentle reminder to our doggy friends .....

Abbey Garden Centre is a dog-friendly site, we love to stop and say hello to our 4-legged visitors, even in our Cafe, on the green-floored area, but here is just a gentle reminder of our dog rules!
