New Government Announcement

Following on from the government announcement this evening it has been confirmed Garden Centres CAN REMAIN OPEN from Thursday. We are very grateful for those working behind the scenes in the horticultural industry to help ensure this has happened, our UK growers especially have had a very hard year. The importance of gardening for both physical and mental health has been a key deciding factor in this decision.

We have all the strict Covid measures in place necessary to keep it as safe as possible for staff and customers. We have increased the capacity of our Click & Collect service and delivery service – which is now national – for those preferring this option.

Unfortunately Lime Kiln Kitchen will be closed from Thursday but our takeaway menu is available for collection.

Today has been a huge rollercoaster ride for us and our thoughts are with all the other independent retailers who will have to close for a month – please shop local and support these local businesses!
