Green-fingered Bolton residents will be able to stock up on supplies from the comfort of their own home thanks to a new service being offered by Heaton Fold Garden Centre.
The centre and café are currently closed due to the coronavirus lockdown, but the new home delivery service means avid gardeners will not miss out.
From tomorrow (Tuesday, April 21), customers will be able to place orders for summer bedding plants for beds, pots or hanging baskets, perennials, shrubs, soil, compost and much more at good value prices.
Orders can be made by phone or email only and a friendly team of staff will be on standby to talk customers through the items available and arrange a suitable delivery slot Monday to Friday.
Deliveries will be focused within a 5-mile radius and will be completely free for orders over £40.
A £5 charge will apply on orders under £40, deliveries exceeding 5 miles and any ‘missed’ deliveries that need to be rescheduled.
Payment must be made by debit or credit card over the phone and contactless delivering will ensure the safety of both customers and delivery drivers.
Items will be left on the doorstep and drivers will wait at a safe distance to ensure they are collected.
Heaton Fold Garden Centre is run by Bolton Council and offers valuable work experience to adults with learning difficulties.
If you have never visited Heaton Fold, now is the ideal time to speak to the incredibly friendly staff and see the excellent products on offer.
Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, Cllr Adele Warren, said:
“Gardening can be a calming distraction at this difficult time and I am delighted that the keen gardeners of Bolton will once again be able order plants and other important supplies.
“If you are not a regular gardener, there has never been a better time to pick up a new hobby.
“If you have never visited Heaton Fold, now is the ideal time to speak to the incredibly friendly staff and see the excellent products on offer.”
