Spring is coming, the potatoes and onion sets have arrived.

The potatoes and onion sets arrived this morning, so its time to start thinking about the first planting of the year. 

This year we have First Earlies Pentland Javelin, Arran Pilot, Foremost, Rocket and Sharpes Express.   We have Second Earlies Nicola, Wilja, Kestrel, Maris Piper and Charlotte.  We have Main Crop Desiree, King Edward, Maris Piper, Cara and Pentland Crown.  All are packed in 1kg bags and are £1.99.  They are fabulous quality and full of life, ready to go as soon as its warm enough.

In the onions we have Sturon, Stuttgard and Red Baron, all £1.95 for 500g sold loose.  Shallots are Golder Gourmet and Red Sun, both £2.90 for 500g sold loose.. 

They are selling fast, so don't be disappointed.  Pop in and see us soon.

Waterproofing paints and sealants.

Rain, rain and more rain! Weather like this is sure to show up any little leaks in conservatories and out buildings. We have lots of waterproofing paints, bitumen paints and sealants to choose from, and we're always happy to advise on the best way to tackle a problem. Pop in and see how we can help. The forecast is for sun soon (honest!).

Upcycling furniture with Rustoleum Furniture paint

When my daughter was younger she loved pink and glitter so we decorated her room to match. We created a chest of drawers out of an old set, all in pink and with heart shaped handles. She has long since grown out of the sparkley pink phase, so I've finally got round to updating her room. The last piece is to re-invent the chest of draws.

I'm using Rustoleum Furniture Paint to update the colour and adding new handles to give it a much more sophisticated look. We've gone for a fantastic duck egg blue. A small tin was big enough to cover the whole chest of drawers and cost £6.55. With the addition of 6 new handles at 75p each the whole thing cost just over a tenner - not bad for a designer chest of drawers!  Rustoleum Furniture Paint is available to order.
