Christmas Gift Ideas


As well as the run up to Christmas, we are very busy in the nursery at the moment. The Bare-rooted Roses which recently came into stock are selling fast. The Poinsettias we have been growing since July are all ready and going out into the shop. The Camellias and Hamamelis are in bud. Raspberry Canes and Asparagus plants are also in. We have some great gift ideas together too in readiness for Christmas - hand toolskneelo kneeling padsgardening books and amaryllis gift boxes. Don't forget the National Garden Gift Vouchers and Daleside Gift Vouchers, they are always a welcome alternative gift for friends and family. See below for Christmas Opening Times.

Poinsettia.....The symbol of Christmas

If the bright red berries of holly and the evergreen foliage of ivy are the symbols of Christmas outdoors, then the poinsettia with its large brightly coloured bracts, (modified leaves) is surely the symbol of Christmas indoors. The poinsettia of today is a far cry from it’s forbears. Compact and rounded in habit with an amazingly varied range of colours, the past 25 years has seen a huge increase in the popularity of poinsettias. Often, mistakenly, regarded as difficult to look after, poinsettias provide several months of colour if a few simple rules are followed.

See our full range of Home Grown Poinsettias and Care leaflet

Cyclamen.....The perfect houseplant for any cool windowsill

cyclamenCyclamen are perhaps the most popular of all winter flowering house plants. They have a long flowering period, easily blooming from September until March, come in a wide range of colours with beautifully contrasting leaves and a compact growing habit.

They are also remarkably easy to look after, refer to our care leaflet for advice.

Jobs for December.....

  • Make sure your greenhouse heater is working correctly.
  • Spray the soil around roses with a winter wash to help prevent Black Spot next year.
  • Protect newly planted and vulnerable plants from rabbits and squirrels.
  • Insulate outdoor taps from frost.
  • Reduce the risk of disease next year by maintaining good garden hygiene. Rake up, burn or bury infected leaves.
  • Keep feeding garden birds.
