Open Day, Sunday 29 May, 12-4pm, Hawkwood Nursery
The open day comes round again with another opportunity to buy plants for your garden, get free compost, eat good cake and more! This month’s seasonal horticultural task is planting out, come along to a workshop to get tips and advice on giving your plants a good start into the ground. And as part of London Tree Week, an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful range of fruit and forest trees on our site.
We have popular favourites such as tomatoes, squash, courgettes – plants that are hard to get started without a greenhouse, and our growers can offer advice and aftercare tips. We have a whole range of chillis and over 20 different salad leaves – grow your own mixed salad! Plus fruit bushes, edible flowers, kudu, aubergine and more. We also supply sacks of top-quality seed sowing, potting and container compost (made to our special recipe). And we have a compost giveaway – bring your own sacks to take away free greenwaste compost for your household (generous amount per household).
The plants are strong and healthy -ready to compete with weed seedlings and garden pests! More plant sale dates and list of plants available here.
