House Plants

If you haven’t been up to see us lately come and have a look at our recently arrived indoor plants.  With the weather turning colder its time to bring nature inside to add some colour and ambience to your home and reap the health rewards of growing indoors.

The benefits of indoor plants include helping you to improve the air quality, increasing oxygen and reducing carbon monoxide, in your home.  Plants help to purify the air and remove toxic chemicals found in every home.  The humidity created by indoor plants can also help with coughs and colds associated with the winter months, helping to deter illness and boost healing.

Not to mention the stress relieving benefits of caring for your colourful new additions.

May Bank Holiday Weekend

Dare we say this out loud but… as we approach the May Day public holiday it looks like Spring may really be springing! Temperatures are forecast to be above 10 degrees for the next 10 days and we should see sunshine every day (!) so planning to spend some time in your garden feels like a realistic goal.

What will you be focusing on – planting new treats? Giving your grass the first trim of the season? Hacking back those rampant bushes? Or tackling the fresh weeds popping up faster than you can stamp them out?

We have been flat out filling the garden centre up to the brim with everything you need for a busy weekend in the garden.

  • Vegetable plants
  • Herbs
  • Tomato, cucumber, pepper and courgette plants
  • Summer bedding
  • Hanging basket plants
  • Senetti’s
  • Lavender’s
  • Clematis
  • Shrubs and Herbaceous plants from our own nursery
  • And lots more

We are open 9 to 5 Friday and Saturday, 10 to 5 Sunday and 9 to 6 on Monday

Have a great bank holiday weekend from the Ben Reid team.
