We are looking forward to seeing spring 2019 and getting back out into the greenhouse and garden once again. This year we have invested in a new propagation area which will enable us to grow more stock, increase our range and keep our prices low. We will be busy in January sowing seeds and potting up lots of herbaceous plants in 3 litre pots, come the end of February we will have a wide range of shrubs and herbaceous available. New varieties and a quality to match. Our plants are potted by students from the Fifth Trust which to some of us is a relatively easy task but to some of our students potting plants is a challenge but very rewarding.
In April we sell the full selection of spring and summer vegetable plants so look no further than the Vineyard garden centre this year when you are thinking of filling up your vegetable planters or garden. We have bags of farm yard manure @ £4.49 each which is sterilised to stop the weeds, this is ideal to dig in the garden during early January and February to enrich the soil and give it back some nutrients before the planting season.
From the end of April we have bedding plants and patio plants galore, the garden centre is full of colour. We grow and stock a great selection of pack bedding plants and patio plants at really good prices, the bedding plants are great to plant up in pots, hanging baskets or straight into the garden. Patio plants are becoming very popular they make a great floral show particularly when planted in hanging baskets. Look out for our summer displays in the Whitefriars shopping centre this coming year. Last year we were awarded a gold at the Southeast in bloom awards.
