BOW Garden and Aquatic Centre is a great place to find both horticultural and watery inspiration. On a lovely three acre site, this family-run business caters for all your garden and aquatic needs, as well as offering expert advice.
On the gardening side the centre has a fresh stock of shrubs, fruit and other trees ready for September planting. There is also a wide selection of acers in the acer house. Now is also the time to buy bulbs ready for planting outdoors and in containers, to ensure a good show for next spring. Also with recent warm weather it is important to continue watering, and also care for your lawn, making repairs or preparing new lawns. The centre also has a fresh selection of house plants, gifts and pet products available.
If your needs are aquatic, it is possibly now time to refresh any fish losses, and to clear out your garden pond – using treatments and nets to remove unsightly algae and blanket-weed, and the centre also has pond-vacs to make it easier to remove the sludge from the bottom of ponds. If you are at all concerned about your pond water quality the centre offers a free water testing service for customers. Now is also the perfect time to treat yourself or your family to an aquarium and the centre has a wide range of aquariums, and also stocks many coldwater, tropical and marine fish, musk turtles, newts, as well as corals and anemones.
Fish keeping is a really relaxing and rewarding pastime and the centre offers expert advice on how to set up and maintain an aquarium, and which fish are best to keep together.
All in all, Bow Garden and Aquatic Centre is a gardeners and fish-keepers haven and there is something for everyone across the site.
The display gardens are in full bloom at the moment, with a giant koi pond, pets corner and country coffee shop with all home-made food all worth a visit.
