Activity has noticeably ramped up at the garden centre in the last week or so as people begin to think about the garden and getting it in shape for the spring and summer ahead.

We have teamed up with the West Briton again this week, with a reader offer included in the Helston & The Lizard edition, for a FREE Redcurrant Rovada plant, to kick start your grow your own season! Our FREE honeysuckle offer was very popular last month, and we look forward to seeing even more of you take advantage of the offer this time around.

We have also brought the first veg packs of the year down fresh from the nursery this week, including rocket, lettuce and our Trevena Cross salad leaves. Keen to keep you enthusiastic about growing your own this year, we have cut our pack prices from £2.65 (our 2011 price) to £2.25 this year – what is it they say? Every little helps!

Grow your Own - Salad Leaves

In the next day or two we are also expecting our first container load of exotic specimens from Spain… so watch for more on this very, very soon!
