At Fairweather’s Garden Centre we have a long tradition of providing the best materials to grow-your-own fruit and veg.

Growing Veg AdviceYou can start with a simple seed, from our selections by Mr Fothergills and Franchi Seeds of Italy. Visit their websites to search for a particular variety and we can order individual packets for you if they are not already amongst our core range.

At the right seasonal times of the year we have Seed Potatoes, Onion sets, garlic, asparagus, and rhubarb plus other bulbs and tubers for growing edibles at home.

To help you along, we stock a variety of propagation equipment such as mini-greenhouses, cloches, seed trays, raised beds, labels and much more. If you don’t find the equipment you’re looking for we can often order items specifically on a weekly basis.

Don’t forget to check out our own grow-your-own skills over at Patrick’s Patch.
