Comes in all colours

Comes in all colours

pnstemonHooray, the clocks have been put forward, allowing us more time outside in the evenings. Mother Nature has come out of the starting blocks with a surge of activity not to be matched at any other time in the year and we must take full advantage of it.

Any shrub or tree planting still to do should be completed this month so that they can become established before the dryer summer months.

Plants which have become very popular in recent years are the herbaceous plants (perennial plants) with their tremendous diversity of flowers and colour. Unlike bedding plants which last but one season, herbaceous plants provide colour year after year and at the same time encourage wildlife, from butterflies to birds. This is why at Averys due to their popularity, we have massively increased our range of herbaceous plant this year for sale.

If space is a an issue why not use a large pot or container filled with John Innes Compost No3 ,  planted with ( as an example ) free flowering  Penstemon plants in a colour range from Black to light pink. Just by calling into Averys you could obtain these plants, pots and compost and then plant them up and put by your front door to give a summer of colour. Please remember help is always available from our friendly staff if needed.

If you have a plot of ground and want a cheap and cheerful way of introducing colour for the summer, with the minimum of cost why not try our seed cubes, which are packed with summer flowering seeds. Sown onto a prepared area of soil, they will germinate and cover the area in flowers throughout the summer.

Happy gardening.
