Gardening and Houseplants
Here in our gardening department we have a full and comprehensive range of products to help make your garden grow, from lawn care and fertilizers, to composts, tools and pots. We carry a huge range of Sutton’s seeds, spring and summer bulbs, along with seed potatoes and onion sets (depending on the time of year).
All this choice can be a little daunting, so feel free to ask our friendly and knowledgeable staff for guidance through the array of names and packaging. They are also pleased to help with plant identification, diagnosis of pests and diseases and general gardening advice.
Recently we have started selling Hunter boots - the ultimate wet weather footwear famed for their comfort, fit, durability and style and make great presents.
Houseplants have long been a specialty at Wm. Wheat & Son. Back in the early 1960’s we were one of the first nurseries to arrange foliage and flowering plants together to create indoor gardens. These plant arrangements are all individually created on the premises and make fabulous gifts that are always acceptable. We also keep a large range of indoor plants of all sorts of varieties and sizes.
Our plants make perfect presents. At Christmastime 500 indoor gardens and more than 1500 Poinsettia plants are grown here on our nursery and make an incredibly vibrant display from the beginning of December.
Philip Wheat, the Retail Director, who co-ordinates the retail area is a self-confessed 'plant geek', full of useful information about gardening.
