  • coloured or white single string lights
  • novelty strings

Potted bulbs and plants

Hyacinths and daffodils are perfect for giving to friends, or for adding scent and colour to your own celebrations. Amaryllis, with their huge flowers and dramatic colours, are great fun for kids to plant. They grow quickly so are excellent for people who like to see results! We have kits (which include the pots and soil) and simple waxed bulbs to choose from:

Boxed up kit showing red and white amaryllis bloom on front.
Amaryllis bulb, waxed in maroon coloured wax, with leaves sprouting from top.
Boxed up kit showing mainly white amaryllis bloom with thin red line around edge of petals
Deep red amaryllis bloom on cover of boxed kit.

We stock a variety to come in and browse before we start running low on stock…

Ring or text 07845 964013 to check we’ve got what you want in stock.

Hellebores (Christmas Roses)

We specially recommend hellebores which have delicate flowers in the middle of winter in a variety of red/pink/ivory/green shades. They’re often called ‘Christmas Rose’ – and make a perfect Christmas present.

Gifts for gardeners, brewers and more

For the keen gardener in your life we have gloves, tools, seeds and shrubs…

For brewers we have everything from starter kits for the ‘brew-curious’ through to specialist items for your home expert.

Plus old fashioned plain brown wrapping paper, patterned recycled gift wrap and even some Christmas cards!

Cookie cutters, baking trays…

Keep hands, small and large, busy with baking – we have cookie cutters, trays, bowls, spoons, mixers – there’s really no excuse!
