Garden and Plant Newsletter | January 2024

Hello friends of Cam Home & Garden

We hope 2024 is getting off to a great start for you!

We’re okay but getting frustrated with the roadworks outside our shop!

Many of our customers are frustrated too but we are managing to support people in a number of ways:

  • access by foot or bike to our shop door is easy – there is a path along the run of shops and you can get to us easily on foot
  • our own specific parking spaces and bike racks are still available just in front of our shop
  • we offer free local delivery
  • Ring us up and check if you’re not sure before setting out – we’re always happy to answer questions or try to find ways to help

Support our Milton Road community of shops

Our part of town is friendly and we’re lucky to have a variety of shops close by – from florists to nail bars, charity shops to pharmacies not to mention two flooring shops, two small supermarkets, several food outlets, a butcher and… I could go on!

All of these businesses are struggling with the impact of the road works.

We all provide a friendly local service, get to know people who live nearby, support each other and often also support small local charities and community groups.

As proud members of this small business community we’re asking our customers to bear all the other shops in mind too:

  • When you come to visit us why not run other errands nearby?
  • Your support during these difficult roadworks will make a big difference.

Big Garden Birdwatch

Join thousands of people around the country for the super popular Big Garden Birdwatch this week! And to tempt more birds into your garden we’ve got bird food and feeders here in the shop for you to buy.

bird food and bird houses

Sign up at the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) website to report your list and take part in this longstanding and important example of citizen science. It tracks where species are thriving, where they are in trouble, and is an important way to monitor changes in bird life.

We like a bit of bird watching too – so come in and let us know what you’ve seen!

Pots and bunches of spring flowers

For your table, windowsills and as gifts we have all the spring flowers for you!

We have pots of snowdrops, bluebells, daffodils, irises, tulips, crocuses and more – come in and choose!

We also ring up our trusted supplier, Fentongollan farm near Truro in Cornwall, to ensure weekly deliveries of their fantastic cut daffodils.
