Otter Garden Centres - your garden, your home.
Otter Garden Centres in Brixton, Plymouth is gearing up for Spring and customers are seeing a riot of colour.
March is a good time for planting and there are so many plants to choose from; our Alpine selection will set your rockeries rocking, while for cottage garden fans young plants such as lupins and delphiniums are ready to plant out. Our perfumed sweet peas can usually go out early too.
In the garden you’ll be wanting to prepare your borders – if you find pulling up weeds a chore, visit the store to see some great tools to make weeding less of an effort. Lawns will need care, too – you may have done a mow or two already, so give your lawn some love with a lawn fertilizer. While you’re feeding your lawn, don’t forget your roses and borders. Ask instore for the best feeds to use.
Patio pots may still have healthy plants from the winter so just pep them up with violas and pansies – these are always reasonably priced, and you’ll find they flower for you year after year.
It’s our favourite time of year at Otter Garden Centres Plymouth, as evenings start to get lighter and we feel the warmth of the sun again. The perfect time to get out in your garden.
