Spooky goings on at Abbey!

A spooky display at Abbey - take a look at our fantastic range of pottery Halloween ornaments!  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! 

New in - bare rooted Wallflowers!

Back in stock!  Bare rooted Wallflowers, bagged up ready to go in the ground!

Persian Carpet Wallflowers  -  in blue striped bags, grow to approx 40 cm (16 inches) high

Tom Thumb wallflowers  -  in red striped bags, dwarf Wallflowers, grow to approx 30cm (12 inches) high

Plant Wallflowers 6-8 inches apart in full sun, in well drained soil - they dislike being in cold, waterlogged soil - and they will reward you with a glorious splash of colour next Spring

Shore Leave Halsar say "Thank You" to Abbey customers!

Abbey was pleased to host a visit from Shore Leave Haslar, a fantastic group of volunteers who work hard to prepare the Memorial Garden at the Royal Hospital Haslar for all tri-service veterans.  They are passionate about the recuperative benefits of gardening and the camaraderie of working within a team, developing sense of purpose and personal accomplishment.

Thanks to the generosity of Abbey's fantastic customers, we were pleased to present them with £350, raised by customer donations and from the sale of poppy seeds, also 4 poppy planters to benefit their organisation.  A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated!
