Tim’s January Message & New Despatch Times!
Happy New Year! Spring is getting nearer so time to start planning your summer garden. Here’s a choice of old favourites and new introductions all maintaining that excellent value for money.
My “new picks” are the World Exclusive bedding varieties with Geranium Stellar’s also mention plants will reward you with delicious fruit and delightful flowers deep into autumn. With budgets in mind value bedding starts from £9.99 with free plants. Bulb deals are from £9.99 and there are piquantly priced perennials too. Look out for double and multi pack savings throughout. With free delivery on everything, that really is great value!
Keen to get going? Order early for the earlier deliveries!
PS. Some of you may not yet be aware of the fact Gardening Direct has been under NEW Management since July this year. I was a founder of the original Gardening Direct and 6 years ago founded Jersey Choice specialising in growing and selling bedding plants, shrubs, perennials and roses. Helping me was Peter Clark ex Horticultural Director of Gardening Direct and Andrea Martin ex Customer Services Manager of Gardening Direct. It makes real sense to combine our companies resources, which means your ‘old team’ is back and please be assured we will continue to make improvements for your benefit.
We are also pleased to offer you new and Improved Despatch and Delivery Times of Plants.
