We are delighted to be stocking the new publication “Bloom”

A gorgeous magazine for all: for gardeners, plant admirers and nature lovers . 


Nature is .. broadly speaking, free and available to all, simply show a little interest and you will hopefully be rewarded with the most spectacular sights, scents and sounds.


For those of us who don’t have a vast plot in the country, or for those who understand the science of mulch before getting our hands dirty, for those who don’t need to know the Latin name of a plant to think it’s beautiful, or indeed for those who know every single one.  This is one that we will all enjoy. 


 Bloom is now available in our shop and online store priced  £8 click to buy
