A new leaf…

collage2

As the last bit of the tinsel has been swept up and the first of the snowdrops begin to bloom, we’re looking forward to welcoming the longer days, warmer weather and getting stuck into new projects.

Making a positive impact on the environment has always been a goal of ours but this year we’re trying to be even better at reducing waste, lowering our carbon footprint and protecting wildlife, as we feel we have a great opportunity, as a garden centre, to lead the way. So far, we’ve hit the ground running, as we’ve been busy collecting Christmas trees purchased from us last year and will be using these in local soil improvement initiatives.

To keep the positive momentum going, we’ll be on the look out for opportunities to make a difference, whether it’s inspiring young people to get involved in gardening, educating gardeners on creating wildlife friendly havens or supporting local charities and initiatives, so watch this space and see how you too can get involved!

Tea and cake - hr

There’s nothing quite like tucking into a piece of cake on a chilly day, so this February is all about feasting with friends at The Apple Tree Restaurant. We’ll be serving tea and coffee with a selection of bite-sized cakes for two for just £9.95. With a wide selection of scrumptious classics including, Victoria or chocolate sponge and a variety of irresistible traybakes, it will be hard to resist the temptation of indulging with friends and loved ones this February.
