We hope you have been enjoying the little glimpse of Spring as we have. Although Mother Nature is about to firmly put us back in our place this week it seems.
Like many of you, we too got over enthusiastic and started some of our seedlings off too early and we are now desperately trying to protect them and barely have a free windowsil in the house. Ah well!
The thing is don't panic if you do lose the odd thing, you have plenty of time to start over and they will catch up.
As ever the April Newsletter has already been issued to our subscribers, so if you too would like to be among the first to hear of our new products and promotions then join our gang! You will receive 10% discount off your first order too. Definitely a win/win!
Other news from the Newsletter is that we introduced Nancy Rothery who will be supplying us with seasonal receipes to enjoy each month. We are really excited about this collaboration and look forward to trying them out. They will appear in both the Newsletter and the Blog.
We also have introduced a slot where our customers share their top 5 tips with our community. Sarah Hadley was first up and had some great little tips for us. If you would like to have your Top 5 included just email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Following on from a conversation with a customer who struggles with bitey bugs, midges and mosquitos in the summer we have pulled together a list of plants that you can have in pots that will help to repel them. Just strategically place them around your seating areas. This subject particularly resonates with us because we are surrounded by water culverts and back on to a river so it is an issue that we understand well. The following list should help:
- Mint of any variety
- Lemon Grass
- Lemon Balm
Of course, there is something else you can do to help and that is to attract birds to your area to feast on them critters!
Lastly, we added some beautiful new additions for you.
- Echinacia Red In Shades (pictured)
- Echinacia White Swan
- Echinacia Purple
- Rudbeckia Autumn Forest
- Rudbeckia Kelvedon Star
- Runner Bean Painted Lady
- Tomato Black Cherry Organic (looks wonderful and we have some on the go!)
Grab your cuppa and have a browse and we will see you along the garden path!
Seeds you soon!
