February 2021 at The Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre
February is always seen as the month of love. Even though it is a relatively short month, it has felt like it has flown by here at the Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre. We’ve been busy making sure our wonderful customers get the best experience possible while shopping with us. As we are in lockdown February being a short month could be seen as a good thing, during this time we’ve been continuing with our regular opening hours: 9-5 on Monday to Saturday and 10-4 on Sundays and Bank Holidays. However, our main priority remains protecting our staff and customers from COVID-19, helping to reduce the spread of the virus. Therefore, we have been maintaining and regularly reviewing the COVID secure guidelines we have in place.
We have been up to quite a lot this month from expanding our garden centre to serving our couple’s luxury Valentine’s afternoon tea. At the moment we have lots of lovely Spring stock to bring some life to your garden. Our first Herbs of the season are here, and we've got plenty of our beautiful, locally grown Primroses in stock too. For early colour, we have some stunning Camellia and Rhododendron available, with fat buds about to burst, along with masses of Spring bulbs just starting to do their thing. We also have a great range of ready-made planters and hanging baskets to add instant colour to your garden or patio. We also served our couples luxury afternoon tea to our amazing customers with one lucky customer finding the hidden love heart in their afternoon tea meaning they had won a £25 gift card to spend here at the Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre. Our garden centre team have been working extra hard this month, working on our new and exciting ‘outdoor living’ space. It’s packed with garden furniture, outdoor lighting, beautiful wall art and mirrors, hand forged garden arches and tunnels, outdoor cushions and more! What’s even more exciting is that this is just the beginning, keep an eye out in coming weeks for fire pits, barbecues, parasols and bistro sets, all on their way to us in readiness for spring and summer. You can be assured that we will have something unique and different to make your garden extra special. We have also continued to do takeaway food throughout this month offering it every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On offer were a range of breakfast sandwiches to takeaway between 11am–3pm, as well as this we had lamb, chicken or vegetable samosas with a cucumber, mint and coriander raita with an Indian tomato and onion salad.
Looking ahead to next month we now see a light at the end of the tunnel with the roadmap that the prime minster has set out, we can’t wait for the 21st June. During March is of course Mother’s Day. We will again be doing a special takeaway afternoon tea this time for Mother’s Day. It includes a selection of sandwiches, crisps, 4 different cakes and a white chocolate and raspberry scone, to view the menu go to: https://www.langtongreenhouse.co.uk/greenhousecafe.
