Lockdown gardening and indoor plant joy

We’re here to help you stay happy in your home and garden!

We hope you’re managing in these challenging times – we’re thinking of you! 

If you’ve got a garden, balcony or would like some indoor plants to cheer up your home, we’re still here to help bring some joy to your day even though obviously walk-in service at the shop has stopped. 

Just call us with your order now and we’re offering a LOCAL DELIVERY SERVICE to local area postcodes B73, B74, B75, WS4, WS5, WS9 and WS14. 

Call us on 0121 353 7123.

Minimum order value £40 with a £10 delivery charge. Contactless delivery only, in accordance with distancing instructions (sorry we can’t carry goods into houses or gardens).

Phil and Brian are tending the plants as normal in our greenhouses and managing all the sales. We will discuss your order with you and we’ll take payment by card over the phone. We don’t have online ordering or the capacity to respond to emails. 

Choose from:

  • All normal gardening products and equipment
  • compost, fertilisers, hose fittings, brooms, tools, etc
  • Bird food, outdoor shrubs, some outdoor plants
  • (primroses are looking good, but it’s too early for bedding plants or summer hanging baskets, but we do have some winter hanging baskets)
  • House plants (orchids, flowering plants, foliage plants).
  • Gifts and cards from the gift shop 

Please do share this with neighbours and friends – we want to be of service to the community as ever. And we also want to keep our business alive! Let’s help each other however we can. Enjoy your homes and gardens.

All the best from Phil and Brian 

Our gardening department stocks a wide range of products to help make your garden grow together with plants suitable for growing in your garden, greenhouse, porch or conservatory, plus trees, shrubs, climbers, roses and perennial plants.

Our floristry department specialises in creating exciting floral arrangements individually created with flair and style. Whatever your requirements, from a single red rose to an exotic floral creation or even a society function - you can be sure our florists will design something special for you that is a joy both to give and to receive.

We are devastated that we can't serve our customers who were planning weddings. Make no mistake we will be happy to rebook you in as soon as the lockdown is lifted.

Our wedding flowers service is second to none. Brides often come to us because they have been impressed by our work at a friend's wedding and know that they will get personal and professional attention. We regularly decorate The Belfry, Fairlawns, The Metropole and The Rennaisance hotels to name but a few.

In the "Cool Greenhouse" you will see displayed plants suitable for growing in the greenhouse, porch or conservatory, all make wonderful gifts which we will wrap for you in cellophane with bow and card FREE of charge.

The Waterside Café is currently closed. 

We will let you know as soon as we reopen

Join us for breakfast, lunch, hot & cold drinks and of course, some rather delicious treats. We offer a wide range of sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes & lots of other hot and cold tasty meals.

Our café overlooks the beautiful Bourne Pool and so makes the perfect place to relax and take in the most beautiful surroundings.
