Getting ready for the autumn gardening season
The gardening industry is especially seasonal, and we always have to be one step ahead of the game. We asked our lovely customers to come and buy our bedding plants not so long ago to help us clear out the poly tunnels. Now the bedding plants have nearly all gone the tunnels are looking bare and are ready and waiting for the next flourish of seasonal plants. These will be our autumn pansies and violas and already the process of filling the tunnels has begun. We have just started pricking out our baby plants and putting them into their containers where they are then being labelled and will be cared for until they are big enough to go on sale - late August/early September. Jenny and Julie can be seen here working their way through what will be more than 15,000 packs of plants, they work highly effectively as a team with lots of fun chat along the way. It's always non-stop here at Pacific with spring bulb season imminent too, and then Christmas around the corner.
We will keep you posted on the progress of theses baby plants and let you know when they will be coming out from the tunnels and onto the shelves for you to buy. Winter pansies are brilliant for giving your garden a lift of colour during the autumn/winter months. We offer packs of mixed colours or single colours, so whether you like a bit of variety or a strict colour scheme we can accommodate either. It has been reported that the winter pansy market has been declining in recent years but we think at Pacific that if you fill your garden with colour for summer then why not for winter? So we want to bring the pretty pansy to the forefront of people's minds for their winter gardens #plantmorepansies, so do your bit and come and buy some gorgeous Pacific pansies!
