Hurray for HYDRANGEAS!! Now 20% off!

Hydrangeas are a fantastic addition to your garden!  They reliably produce fantastic blooms each year, in a huge range of colours.  They prefer a slightly shaded position, as hot summer sunshine can scorch the flowers.  They are tolerant of most soils, prefering rich, moist conditions, and if you want to keep the flowers blue, choose ericaceous (acid) compost - on alkaline soils they will turn pink.  Most flower on old wood, so prune immediately after flowering if needed, and then leave well alone over winter to let the buds develop.

This week - 20% off! 

NEW IN - Rustic obelisks and jute ball hanger!!

These elegant obelisks are perfect to train climbing plants up, such as clematis, honeysuckle or climbing roses.  They are not coated in plastic, but made from a metal which is specially designed to rust naturally to give a rustic feel.  They come in various sizes, including a very large 2.2m one (7.2 feet!)

Also, new in, the most handy item you will ever buy for your garden/shed - an extremely useful jute ball hanger, that can hang on a hook in your shed, which means that the twine won't ever tangle - you can simply cut off a length that you need with ease!  Brilliant value at £2.99, and an ideal gift! 

 

* * WOW!! * * Summer Bulbs now 50p * *

*  *  *  50p!   50p!   50p!   50p!  *  *  *

Celebrating solar!

We have some stunning solar lights on offer - Solar Ice Orb lights are £7.99, or 2 for £12!!

The "crackle glazed" effect on the orbs is very eye-catching and will transform your garden at night!  No messy wires, just place in a sunny position!

Use Provado to beat the bugs!

Now that your garden is bursting with fresh new shoots and delicate new foliage, you can sit back and relax, right?!!  NO!  All the hungry, nasty beasties are lining up to nibble at your nice new plants, and suck the stems dry!!   BUT, you can FIGHT BACK - with PROVADO products! Provado Ultimate Bug Killer comes in a one litre, ready to use spray (£4.99).  It works on contact, and systemically, which means it is absorbed into the plant and keeps on working, for up to 6 weeks' control.  It's suitable for use on all outdoor ornamental plants, selected vegetables, fruit trees and bushes, and is effective against greenfly, blackfly, whitefly, mealybug, thrips, leaf hopper and lily beetle.  We also stock Provado Ultimate Bug Killer as a concentrate, to dilute with water and mix up yourself - a 400 ml bottle makes up to 27 litres.

 

Also very popular is the Provado Vine Weevil killer, which gives up to 4 months' protection against Vine Weevil in ornamental container plants.  Applied as a soil drench, it targets the grubs in the soil to prevent them hatching into adult Vine Weevil.  It also has the added bonus of controlling greenfly, blackfly, whitefly, woolly aphids and scale insects systemcially for up to 4 months.  Vine Weevil are becoming an increasing problem in pots and containers - if a plant looks sick, check the compost for Vine Weevil grubs that eat the roots.  

Don't forget the birds!

Now that baby birds are emerging from their eggs, it is still important to feed the birds!  Look at our fantastic bird food offers: 

 

    

Fat Snax - Tub of 50 (green lids, no nets)

Slug Gone Wool Pellets

Slug Gone pellets were extremely popular last year - they are wool pellets that form a felt-like mat that absorbs moisure from the slug's foot, making it difficult for the slug to cross it.  The wool also contains abrasive particles which irritate the slug's foot creating a natural barrier.  The wool mat also acts as a mulch, keeping moisture in and weeds out.  Slug Gone is a natural, biodegradable protein fibre which releases nitrogen, potassium, sulphur and other trace elements essential for plant growth.  They are also safer than slug pellets for homes with cats, dogs and other pets.  Why not give them a try?!

 

Wet and Forget NOW IN!

Wet and Forget  - NOW IN!  For those of you who haven't heard of Wet and Forget, it is an ingenious solution that you paint on areas that normally get covered in mould, moss or lichen etc, ie paving slabs, walls, pots, even boats!  It has a unique combination of biodegradable selective surfactants for moss & mould removal on absolutely any exterior surface.  When diluted with water and applied, it immediately attacks that unsightly moss, mould and grime. Each time it rains, this safe, cleansing combination reactivates to help flush the moss, mould and grime without scouring the surface it has infested.

*  Non caustic. Non acidic  *

*  No bleach. No water blasting  *

*  No elbow grease!  *

New to Abbey Garden Centre - Neudorff Range of Products

 

As seen on TV!  Neudorff Superfast Weedkiller!

You may have seen the adverts on TV for this weedkiller from Neudorff - now in stock at Abbey Garden Centre.

New to Abbey Garden Centre, the Neudorff range of natural and organic products.  They are environmentally friendly, reliable and effective pest control products.  For example, "Sluggo" Slug and Snail Killer contains 10g/kg ferric phosphate (iron) which occurs naturally in the environment.  After controlling slugs the product biodegrades into iron and phosphate enriching the soil around your plants.  Slugs are attracted away from plants to feed on the bait.  They cease feeding immediately and disappear underground to die without leaving any slime secretion or the need to collect and dispose of slug bodies!

*  *  For use on ALL edible and ornamental crops  *  *
