Finally February!


FinWe finally made it through what was seemingly the longest January in history, and the Thorngrove team are looking ahead to a year of getting involved and ‘being more’…

Well that was the longest January in history wasn’t it? We made it though!
2022 is well underway and we’re excited for what’s to come. Planting season continues, with Kale, Basil, Tomatoes, Aubergines and Broad Beans some of the key things you be sowing in Feb. Don’t forget the Summer flowering bulbs too – get them in pots this month so you’ll have plenty for your garden come July. For any guidance on how to get the most out of your planting, just stop by for a chat.

Keen to be involved

At Thorngrove we’re naturally planning for spring and summer, but we’re also considering more ways to get ourselves involved with the community.

As we’ve often previously mentioned, we want to be more than your local garden centre; we want to be that resource for advice, an event destination, and a presence beyond our gates. Whether that’s by getting involved with South & South East in Bloom (in which our staff recently won awards), returning to the Gillingham & Shaftesbury show, or supporting small community efforts.

If you have a project you’re working on – please do get in touch, there may be something we can do to help…our plants look pretty good, you know!

Plenty to say

We’re also making some tweaks to our online presence’.
The community of followers we’ve built on Facebook and Instagram have been so good to us in the last couple of years. With the launch of our online shop during the pandemic, our gorgeous new shop space on site, the café revamp, all the usual garden tips, ‘plant of the month’… we always have lots to talk about, and we love your feedback, comments, and shows of support.
We’ve thrown ourselves into the deep end and really tried to ramp up the content we put out, and we’re not slowing down. Our Instagram will be exclusively beautiful plant photography from now on, and we’d love to share your photos too!


Budding photographer proud of your garden space? Maybe a new item from Thorngrove has pride of place? Let us know – we’d love to highlight it.

Speaking of beautiful images – we’re also immensely proud to have launched our new range
of 100% eco-friendly greetings cards, featuring unique and original Thorngrove photography. Just another step towards our mission of making ourselves a garden centre you can be proud of. See you soon!
