Armitage’s Garden Centre Plant Doctor – I will be at Armitage’s Garden Centres again next weekend, armed with stethoscope, surgical gloves and a scalpel, dishing out pearls of wisdom to anyone prepared to come and say hello. I will be at the Pennine Garden Centre, Shelley on Saturday, May 8, from 11am to 4pm and at the Birchencliffe Garden Centre on Sunday May 9 from 11am to 4pm. Come along and say hello and, if you bring any samples of problems from your garden, please ensure that they are in a sealed plastic bag to avoid cross-contamination with any garden centre plants.

Visit to see all the other events taking place at our local garden centre during the next few months.
