Make a day of it and bring the family, visit Olivers Maize Maze and fun activities too, a bit of fruit picking, then perhaps a refreshing drink and something nice to eat in The Strawberry Tearoom, completing your outing with a browse round our colourful plant area and shop to see if we can tempt you with beautiful ideas and gifts for your garden.

Pricking out winter pansies into our extremely popular Olivers Own packs of 20. From pricking out to saleable plants takes from 3 to 6 weeks depending on the time of year. These plants will be ready in approximately 1 month.

Autumn Tub and Basket Plants are now in. The collection includes a range of hardy varieties selected to provide colour and contrast for your autumn baskets, containers and borders.
29th August 2015 ....
Autumn onion sets and garlic are now available. Plant onion sets 5-10cm (2-4 in) apart with 30cm (1ft) between rows. Push into loose earth so only the tips of sets shows. Garlic is better left until late October as it likes cool conditions for good bulb development. Break the bulb into cloves and plant so the tips are 2.5cm (1in) below the soil surface, 15cm (6in) apart with 30cm (1ft) between rows.
27th August 2015 ....
Now is the ideal time to plant spring flowering bulbs; choose from our extensive range of tulips, narcissi, hyacinths and many more. We have all your old favourites, plus new varieties across the range, such as new tulip varieties Blue Parrot, Red Parrot, and Izumi, which is bright pink and white. Bulbs are available loose or in packs.  Start off forced hyacinths and put in a dark place for forcing into early flower for Christmas. Use bulb fibre.
