Summer 2012

This year we were even listed in the Independent Newspapers 50 best garden centres in the UK! 
As the wettest summer in living history continues we still have some great things at Groves to put a smile on your face. If you buy a Grandhall Barbecue from us either online or in store we will give you vouchers for meat from the famous Donald Russell Butchers worth £20.00 and vouchers from wine from the online retailer, naked wines.
At the moment our roses are putting on an amazing show in our plant area. For the first time this year we have been able to continue selling our roses online right through the year which has proved a massive success with the very popular varieties Gertrude Jekyll and Rhapsody in Blue proving to be big hits.
Bridport always has lots going on during the summer months and here at Groves we like to get stuck in. We will be taking part in the Bridport Carnival, visiting Buckham Fair, The Melplash Show, the Eat Dorset Food Fair and for the first time we will have a stand at the Dorset County Show. We are also sponsoring an outdoor showing of the new film by local film maker Stephen Banks; Dorset by Night. Part of the Bridport Festival of Culture, the film will be shown during the closing event at West Bay, being projected onto the harbour wall. Dorset by Night is still in production but you can get an idea of this stunning project by taking a look at Stephen’s earlier release; Bridport by Night.
Whatever you are up to in the garden this summer let us know…We are always tweeting on Twitter, Liking on Facebook, Pinning on Pinterest or making videos on YouTube. We even have real people answering the phone! So if you have any questions or comments about gardening, our website or just fancy a chat please do get in touch.
