A look at January at The Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre
Happy New Year everyone!!! The start of 2021 has not got off to the best start. Within a few days of bringing in the new year we were put into another national lockdown, closing a lot of businesses and meaning people could only travel out of their homes for essential trips. Here at The Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre we have be able to remain open in line with government guidance, only the Greenhouse Café is closed to visitors. We have been continuing with our regular opening hours: 9-5 on Monday-Saturday and 10-4 on Sundays and Bank Holidays. With the many physical and mental benefits gardening offers, we are delighted that the government have allowed us, and many alike, to stay open so that we can provide our local community with all the garden essentials to keep you going through lockdown. However, our main priority remains protecting our staff and customers from COVID-19, helping to reduce the spread of the virus. Therefore, we ask all our customers to follow the COVID secure guidelines we have in place. This includes maintaining a safe distance of 2 meters from all other customers and employees at all times, using the provided hand sanitiser upon entry, wearing a face covering throughout the duration of your visit and avoiding handling products that you're not intending to buy.
Even though we are in the middle of a lockdown there is still a lot going on here. We have new gardening products in our garden centre and a takeaway food menu that allows our customers the chance to have a taste of the Greenhouse Café at home. At the moment we have a great range of lovely fresh houseplants. Houseplants are proven to help both our physical and mental health, providing clean air and a restful atmosphere in the home. You can always rely on us to have the best range around. Our thoughts are also turning to Spring time and the return of life to the garden, and a perfect way of adding early colour is with Spring bulbs. We have a great selection now available in pots, many of which we grow here on site, including the bright yellow trumpets of Narcissus 'Tete a tete' and some absolutely stunning red Tulips. Alongside everything else we have created a new food and drink takeaway menu combining our customers favourite drinks with all new sandwich choices like our brie, cranberry and rocket ciabatta. On top of this our team in the Greenhouse Café have also been brainstorming ideas so you can enjoy The Greenhouse Café at home for Valentine’s day. They have created a luxury couple’s afternoon tea which includes a selection of sandwiches served on your choice of white or brown bread, sea salted crisps, a range of cakes and a scone with cream & jam. All of this is only £15 per person, to view the full menu go to: https://www.langtongreenhouse.co.uk/greenhousecafe. To order and book a time for collection call 01858 545819.
Even though this year has not got off to a great start, I’m sure there will be amazing things to come in the months ahead. There are certainly big plans here at The Langton Greenhouse and Garden Centre so keep your eyes peeled for those. Together, we can make 2021 a memorable one for the right reasons. We can’t wait to see all our amazing and loyal customers again this year!!
