The sun's high in the sky, the gardens are blooming, the weather’s improving and summer holidays are on their way! It’s time to celebrate with friends and family and Newnham Court Shopping Village has all you need to make the most of this wonderful time of year.
Your garden at its blooming best
This is a gardener’s favourite time of year, with long days and gardens a riot of colour.
If your garden is still not quite up to its blooming best, Notcutts has plenty of colour ready to be planted into your beds, baskets and pots, ready for entertaining and if your village takes part in Villages in Bloom, you'll be up to standard for the judging days in July.
Stock up on fertiliser to allow your roses to last as long as possible, and for your home-grown veggies to get the boost they need for autumn harvesting and ensure you keep watering and feeding those pots. Even if it’s rained, pots can dry out very quickly.
Encourage the wildlife in... Notcutts also has plenty of bee hotels and bee-friendly plants to keep your garden buzzing with excitement this summer.
Keep your pond clean and healthy
The warm weather can play havoc with your pond this time of year, with rampant algae ready to take over.
Check your filters and pumps regularly and pop into Maidenhead Aquatics for any supplies you need to keep your ponds clean and your pondlife happy and healthy. Their friendly staff are experts in troubleshooting pond care.
Make the most of outdoor entertaining
This is BBQ season and the good weather is here, so make sure you’ve got everything you need for your BBQ for al fresco dining. Don’t forget to pick up your homemade sausages and other quality meats from The Butcher of Brogdale.
Whatever your outdoor space, Notcutts also has a wide range of quality outdoor furniture and accessories to make the most of summer socialising and create the perfect outdoor entertaining area, whether you have a large garden or just a small balcony or patio. If you're looking for some extra fun, Johnson's also has a great range of hot-tubs to fit in most spaces - perfect to keep all members of the family entertained.
