Welcome to our Autumn newsletter, there is certainly a chill in the evenings now along with a dew in the mornings, the summer bedding is just about hanging on and probably needs a frost now to put it out of its misery! Winter pansies are now readily available along with polyanthus, winter heathers and spring flowering bulbs.
We certainly have had a fair amount of rain since mid August, which has transformed our lawns from a desert status to a green oasis, this however masks a series of problems including heavy moss growth and weed infestation. Now is a good time to scarify the lawn and indeed apply either a turf dressing or indeed an Autumn Lawn food. The Autumn lawn food encourages root growth and thickening of the grass, thus preventing moss taking over during the winter period.
Of course it is at this time of year that we start to think of xmas and bearing that in mind our xmas shop will be open from Saturday 9th October.We have plenty of goodies to tempt you this year, including a stunning array of artificial trees, led lights and plenty of decorations. We also have a great new range of italian cookware, especially popular being the cheese boards and oil dispensers. We again have our Flame ornamental bottle holders along with our festive candles and preserves.
Finally we are pleased to announce that Debbie from the Bead Bar has successfuly moved into her newly refurbished shop at Silversprings and along with her very popular workshops, has some lovely gift ideas for the festive period especially the Troll Beads
Our next newsletter will be the winter edition
