Winter Yields...How We Do It!
It's tempting to spend January waiting out the cold. But you don’t have to - you can squeeze an extra crop out of your year by growing through winter. The guys in our shops are doing just that
Here’s what they’re growing.
There's loads on the go in Birmingham. The guys there are currently carrying out a side by side test – the Ebb & Flood System vs RhizoPots.
Some big changes are up ahead - all displays are being revamped. Right now the huge RhizoSystem’s really something to see. The guys at Coleshill have got dahlias growing in it. Drop by to see it in action!
The second biggest Mammoth tent available (300cm x 600cm x 240cm) has just been installed in the Dudley VIP area – wait ‘til you see the size of it.
As always, there’s lots going on in the Sheffield greenhouse. Make sure you check it out.
Now on display is an amazing Mammoth tent jam packed with exotic plants under Gavita lights. One of these plants is the Jabuticaba – a Brazillian grape tree - possibly THE ONLY one in the UK.
Grapes actually grow on the trunk of the tree. You won’t have seen anything else quite like it. It normally takes 6 or 7 years for one of these to flower – the guys in Wembley managed to do it in a year.
All they used was the indoor growing equipment we sell. No wonder it’s their pride and joy! Make sure you stop by and see it. It’s really not to be missed.

The guys at Hockley have just finished growing giant corn plants, they’re now planning their next project. Should be good! Keep your eyes peeled for an update.
The guys at Merton have got loads on display! We haven't got pictures yet, but you can drop by your stores to see what they're growing.
