May Bargains at Coolings

A- | A+

In the hope that the weather allows us all to get in the garden as much as we'd like over the coming weeks (particularly for the bank holiday weekend at the end of the month), I thought I'd summarise some of our best-loved plants that are on offer during May here at Coolings with your Coolings Family Card.   If you are not yet a member, don't worry you can sign up at reception on your way in, it's free and quick and you will be issued with your card immediately...

Scabiosa 'Vivid Violet' (5L Pot) - SAVE £5 off marked price. This delightful herbaceous loves a bit of sun and is perfect for a cottage garden alpine or rockery. It's also loved by bees and butterflies.

Scabiosa 'Kudo' (5L Pot) - SAVE £5 off marked price. As with 'Vivid Violet' it bears its beautiful flowers from late spring into summer and is great for the cottage garden border and patio containers. It's also loved by bees and butterflies.

Berberis 'Orange Sunrise' will definitely light up your garden from dawn to dusk. Great as a specimen or hedge. This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring. It's a real winner and you can currently Buy 2 and SAVE £5 (3 litre pots).

This Daphne 'Perfume Princess' is the result of a hybrid between Daphne odora and Daphne Bholua. It combines both the strong growth from one parent and the unforgettable fragrance from the other. It's flowers are also larger, which means more perfume - hence the name Perfume Princess. The plants are more robust than most other Daphne varieties, so you can easily cut a stem for a vase where the scent will fill a room. To top all that off...it's HALF PRICE  (1.5 litre pots) this month with your Coolings Family card!

Fallopia balschuanica (AKA Russian Vine) is ideal for covering a structure or wall in sun or part shade since it is a deciduous climber. It's fast growing and will be smothered with panicles of tiny pink-tinged white flowers in summer. NOW ONLY £8 (3 litre pot).

Dwarf Lavender 'Little Lady' is a low grower, perfect for garden borders, pathways or rockeries. Ideal for normal, well-drained soils, so make sure not to over-water this bushy plant. Pollinators will thank you for it too. Buy 2 for £15 (2 litre pots) with your Coolings Family Card.

The conifer with attitude! Picea glauca 'J W Daisy's White' is an attractive pyramid shaped, dwarf tree growing to just 1 metre high. It boasts needle-like foliage that is mid-green throughout the year, contrasting to creamy white in spring, lighting up this evergreen. Buy 2, SAVE £5 (3 litre pots) with your Coolings Family Card.

It might be little, but it certainly doesn't lack aroma. Lavender stoechas love the sun, flowers for ages and because it is a dwarf variety it's great for hedging. Currently 2 for £12 (1 litre pots).

Lovely Geums.  I've talked about these a lot recently so will keep it short...Buy 2, SAVE £5 (2/3 litre pots) with your Coolings Family card!  If you do want to know some more about the varieties in store this season click here.
