We’re delighted to announce that from Monday, March 26 we will have a new plant supplier. Brother and sister duo, Neil and Pat, have run a small and family-run nursery near Oake for 10 years.
They were both looking to change their jobs and as they are keen gardeners, they were looking for a new venture utilising their green-fingers. They saw the opportunity to revitalise a closed down nursery in the area, which needed some urgent TLC and the rest is history. They grow a wide range of perennials, shrubs, herbs and lavenders as well as summer and winter annuals and vegetable plants.
Neil added: “When we were asked to supply plants for Rumwell Farm Shop we were delighted and jumped at the opportunity. We will be offering a wide range of the latest annuals for baskets and tubs, bedding packs, as well as the tried and tested favourites.
“We grow more than 12,000 perennials from seed, and compliment these with many more grown from plug plants, as well as herbs, lavenders and shrubs and the increasing trend of people growing their own vegetables has seen us steadily increase our range of tried and tested varieties that we offer.”
We’re inviting green-fingered folk to the shop on Saturday, May 19 to meet our new plant supplier during our Plant Day. This is a chance to see and purchase a selection of plants grown in the local area. Horticultural experts from the family-run nursery will be on hand to discuss any plant queries people may have. There will also be special offers available during the day. We hope you join us on the day to officially welcome Neil and Pat to our supplier family.
