If you need further information on the varieties of bulbs that we have available, please call or email a member of the team.
It has been an exciting time for us over the past few weeks winning three awards at The HTA show and announcing our launch date for our Royal Botanical Gardens Kew Phalaenopsis. However last week ended with our beautiful (and Best in Category for Houseplants) going on sale to customers with an amazing response.
Our stockists have told us that they have had good feedback from their customers to the orchid especially as it is something that has not been seen elsewhere.
Garden Centre Fresh works hard to find something different for every area of plants and we hope that you will be pleased to see what we have to offer over the coming months!
Hibiscus - When the sun comes out and the temperature rises, Hibiscus, our plant of the month for July, is a beautiful addition to a garden. The soft petals and vibrant colours provide a tropical feel due to their native sub-tropical environment. But do not be deterred from these heat loving plants, as they can easily grow well in a sunny garden in the UK.
Dieffenbachia - A real show stopper of an indoor plant, the Dieffenbachia has attractive patterned leaves and a strong colourful character which are certainly a distinctive characteristic. Dieffenbachias, available with either large or small leaves, come mostly with plain green leaves, although you may often discover them with interesting designs on their leaves, ranging from yellow, white and green. Its air purifying qualities also add to what is a very interesting plant within the home.
A plant that is loved by gardeners and insects alike for their sea of vivid colours and spiked structure, the Salvia is the obvious choice for July.
Salvias are long flowering, with the potential to put on a great show from June through much of the summer and into autumn. If you remove the flower spikes as soon as they have faded (or give the entire plant a serious haircut as soon as the last of the flowers fade) then they will keep flowering and you can often enjoy a second crop of flowers in October.

The HTA Show 2014 was a fantastic success for Garden Centre Fresh scooping up three awards.
The show kicked off with the HTA judge’s awards where we were presented with Best in Category for Houseplants for our ‘Japanese Cascade’ Phalaenopsis. This beautiful orchid has large white flowers which ‘cascade’ over to form an eye catching display.
In the Trees and Shrubs category, we were awarded Bronze for our Acer ‘Going Green’. Heavy in foliage and with deep green leaves this Acer would definitely make a statement in a garden.
However it was the Visitor Vote Awards that surprised us the most with us picking up another award for our Phalaenopsis ‘Happy Summer’, where we were presented with the Best in Category for Houseplants.
The standard of this year’s entrants was so high and to receive awards for all three of our entries was a brilliant achievement for us. We are now looking to be introducing our award winning products over the coming months, so watch this space!
We would like to thank everyone that came to visit our stand at the HTA show this year and we hope that you all enjoyed seeing our new products and were amazed by Magic-Al our Magician.
It was good to see so many familiar faces again as well as meeting many new people. It was a fantastic opportunity to be able to have a chat about our forthcoming lines and what Garden Centre Fresh can offer.
We would also like to thank those of you that voted for our Phalaenopsis 'Happy Summer' as Best New Houseplant; it really meant a lot especially with such a high standard of entrants within the same category this year.
We are now working on our Autumn programme which we hope to be sending out to our customers very soon!
We have been celebrating a very successful HTA show with another Gold award for our Phalaenopsis Orchids.
This time visitors to the show voted our Phalaenopsis 'Happy Summer' as Best in Category for Houseplants. This is a very special variety due to its bright colour and bright red and orange lines and purple lip and is definitely an eye catching plant.
'Happy Summer' is exclusive to Garden Centre Fresh and will be coming soon to the webshop, so watch this space!
We are excited to announce the launch of our exclusive range of plants which have been specially selected by RBG Kew Gardens.
The selection of Orchids, Acers, Hydrangeas, Lavender, Cactus, Olives and Houseplants are just some of the plants within the range and they are of the highest quality. This extensive range will be launching from 2014, so watch this space![more...]
Our full colour waterproof labels are one of many new introductions for 2014, but we have been working towards developing them one step further. Very soon our customers will be able to personalise their stock by designing their own labels within our webshop. By saving your logo into the webshop you can ensure that every time you order from us, your labels will be easily identifiable to your customers. The facility will also enable you to make your own multi-buys deals by adding your own text (e.g. Buy One Get One Free) and changing barcodes to be compatible with these deals.
All our pre-pricing and labelling are included in the price so you do not have to worry about those added ‘extras’ when placing your order.[more...]
