Garden and Plant Newsletter 29 September 2023

Hello friends of Cam Home & Garden

It’s getting windy and autumnal – time for bulb planting, leaf raking and some preserving of fruits and other produce. Yes – we have all you need for these activities! And we have a special houseplants day coming up…

20% off all indoor plants on Saturday 14 October!

To help you keep your green fingers busy over winter, we are having a Houseplants Event on October 14. This is a whole day event: come and browse early to get the best choice of stock!

We’re ordering in lots of new houseplants in readiness and offering 20% discount on houseplants on the day. Bring your questions about how to care for your new plants. Then get ready to turn your home into a lush jungle!

We can advise on the best type of equipment and what you need to get started.

We have years of experience ourselves: no question is too basic or too complicated. There’s nowhere else you can go locally for face-to-face advice and tips, along with a wide selection of tools, vessels and ingredients.
