Garden and Plant Newsletter 18 May 2023

Hello friends of Cam Home & Garden!

Thank you for signing up to our newsletter – we hope to help you make the most of your garden this May!

Sow some seeds…

If you’re plantings seeds yourself you still have time to get a few started… We have all the seeds you need – plus the pots, the eco-friendly peat-free compost, and the organic fertiliser too… Come on over, take your pick and get planting.

Bottles of seaweed and other plant based food and fertiliser for garden plants

Our gardening advice is free: if you’re not sure what would work well in a shady corner, or how to plant a particular seed just ask us and we’ll do our best to help you out.

We also have some seed selections that you (or your kids) can simply scatter on your garden – the simplest way to get started.

Seedlings and supplies

It’s prime time to get your veg in – and we have seedlings galore just waiting to get their roots into your garden! We grow many seedlings ourselves, and source further seedlings from trusted suppliers.

We have been growing for years and care for all our plants carefully while they are in our shop: you can be sure of healthy, strong plants that will have a great start in your garden. Check out our plants list (we try to keep it up to date but stock changes fast!) or pop by and see what’s in stock.

Check out our plant list, or our Facebook page, and then phone 01223 660685 for more detail on our latest stock and varieties.

Too much to carry?

Don’t forget that you can come by bike or on foot to choose your compost and we will deliver the heavy bags direct to your home. Free delivery on any products if you spend £25 or more!

Our bricks-and-mortar shop has all the online range, plus a few extras, so it’s always worth popping by to see what is in stock. Right now we have calatheas (see picture above) with lovely striped leaves available online and in our shop.

Finished gardening for the day?

You need a comfy seat to rest on after a busy session tending to your plants… Our garden furniture range is selling well but we have lots of stock left and can, as always, order in items.

From sturdy chairs and tables to top class outdoor dining suites we have options to suit all tastes and budgets. Come and have a look at what we have in stock, pick up our catalogue to look through at home (all measurements are included to help you plan), or look online at our suppliers.
