Dog Friendly Garden Centre (Beware of the Cat)

Woodmeadow Garden Centre is a dog friendly garden centre and welcomes dogs and other pets on leads we have our own dogs and would prefer them out and about certainly not left in cars especially having read some of the horror stories recently regarding dogs left in cars.

It is worth mentioning though that we do have a cat at Woodmeadow, she is a black cat that we rescued called Mrs Bojangles she loves the fuss and attention that our customers give her but can also be very territorial especially towards dogs.

So whilst we welcome dogs bringing in their owners we also would like to remind them that Woodmeadow is Mrs Bojangles home and sometimes she feels like she has to protect it.

May, in the garden

It’s time to plant up your tubs and hanging baskets for Summer colour in the garden. Don’t forget we are still getting cold winds and even some frosts so make sure they are covered at night with a cloche or fleece until the end of the month.

Prune Spring flowering shrubs such as Forsythia, Ribes, Chaemoneles, Pyracantha and Kerria as soon as they have finished flowering.
Put a good layer of bark mulch around established shrubs and trees to conserve moisture and suppress those ever advancing weeds.

Check your fruit plant supports, replace and damaged wire or wooden stakes and tie in the young emerging shoots.

Sow sweet corn in deep pots for transplanting outside in June. Keep an eye on the potatoes and earth up the shoots to encourage a higher yielding crop.
