Offering friendly and expert advice on all things related to plant care

Plant Food

Feeding your plants will help their growth, enable them to produce healthier root systems, strengthen a plant’s resistance to disease, help them to look greener and leafier and improve yields of flowers, fruit and vegetables. This can be done by adding fertiliser to the soil such as slow release fertiliser, a granular feed such as bonemeal, growmore or fish, blood and bone or by feeding the plant directly. 

We sell general plant food or specialist plant food suitable for ericaceous (acid loving) plants, roses, orchids, houseplants, tomato plants, flowering plants and fruit and vegetables. We have a range of organic food too. These may be granular or in liquid form.

Pest Control and Insecticides

There are a number of insects which can cause damage to plants such as aphids, caterpillars, greenfly, blackfly, whitefly, leaf beetles, mealy bug, scale insect, red spider mite, vine weevil and larvae. In such cases it may be desirable to use insecticides to control the problem.

These may come in the form of a concentrate or a ready to use spray. We stock a number of different products. If fruit or vegetable plants are affected, it is important to use a product which is suitable for this purpose.

We have a range of pest control products for controlling slugs, wasps, ants, mice and rats too. 

Disease Control

Should a plant show signs of a fungal disease, then we have the right treatment to use. Fungal diseases may include black spot, powdery mildew, rust and scab.

The product used will depend on the type of fungal disease and the plant in question. In some cases it may be more prudent to use a product such as Roseclear which is a combined systemic fungicide and insecticide. 

Climbing Supports

Plant supports are essential to use with climbing plants, taller shrubs and herbaceous plants as well as trees. It is a great way of training plants against a wall or fence or for using as a feature in the garden such as an arch or obelisk.

For trees, we stock various sizes of tree stakes and tree ties. For other types of plants, we have a range of wooden and metal supports. These range from canes, hoops and trellis to obelisks and metal plant supports.

We have a wide selection of products for securing plants to supports too. Take a look on our handy pack stand.
