July in the Garden Centre

Garden Center Overstrand

We thought it would be a nice idea to let you all know what’s been happening here in the garden centre, now all the Summer bedding has sold out! Frightening as it sounds we are well underway with planning our Christmas display and organising our November and December Christmas Market events. Scary as it also sounds I have our Christmas tree order on my desk….We’ll that’s enough of the Christmas talk and lets enjoy the fantastic Summer.

All of our “Gardeners” are busy tending to our Summer Perennial plants, keeping the displays fresh and inspiring and when they are not watering you might see them with a different hat on or in fact a paint brush in their hand. This is a fantastic time of year to paint the benches and freshen up any tired areas of the garden centre. We also have some planned alterations for the shop area, in preparation for the arrival our of Spring flowering bulbs and our new stock of seeds.

You may have noticed a few changes in the Potting Shed – Tea Room, we are very proud to be able to now offer a wide range of “Homemade” free from gluten cakes and yummy treat options; well done to the two Claire’s and our “Seedlings” for all their hard work. You can usually see the daily cake options on our facebook page .

The garden centre has a completely different feel to it this time of year and we all really enjoy having the freedom to make it our own. We welcome your thoughts and constructive comments and keep an eye out for the changes, regards Sam (Manager)
