How it works:
Follow the link to the Katie’s Garden Plant Centre home delivery service and click on the Hospice Supporter button from the shopping categories. Make sure you add this to your basket, and then continue shopping as normal.
As long as this item is in your basket when you Checkout, the Hospice will earn 10% commission on your order total, at no cost to you.
You will have the option of collecting your order from the Newbourne nursery or having it delivered to your doorstep for free (selected areas of Suffolk only, minimum spend applies).

Our bank holiday range of terracotta pots was so popular we have had to have a major restock already!
All are 50% off RRP, and if you are a Flourish member you get an extra 10% saving on top of this.
Our choice of spring-flowering bulbs has expanded too. New this week are Alliums, Camassias, Crown Imperialis Fritillary and Muscari. For varieties take a look at our Home Delivery online shop.
Don't leave it too late to do your winter hanging baskets and planters - the sooner they are planted the bigger and better the display. New plants for this week include Cyclamen packs, Chrysanthemum packs, Goldcrest conifers, trailing ivy, and more of our Violas and Wallflowers.
Great selection of spring-flowering bulbs coming for start of September!
Many will be available loose for that pick & mix sweet shop experience, while others come pre-packed so you can grab & go.
Most of the range will also be available as part of our Home Delivery service, alongside wallflowers and winter-flowering pansies & violas.
We are trying out 12 New-to-Us Salvias this summer, and we would love you to tell us how they do!
The varieties are: African Sky; Amante; Blue Merced; California Sunset; Christine Yeo; Dyson’s Maroon; guaranitica Super Trouper; Javier; Peter Vidgeon; Phyllis Fancy; Pink Pong; Walsingham White.
They are available for general sale, and for 100 points each for Flourish members
What we would like to know:
It's also helpful for us to know in how sunny a site you grew the plant, the type of soil, if you have had experience with Salvias before, and how experienced and confident you would consider yourself as a gardener - we are as keen to hear from the beginners as we are the experts!

Our new opening times are 11am-4pm Tuesdays to Sundays.
Now that socially-distanced shopping has had the chance to settle in and settle down at the nursery, we will be increasing our general opening times.
For now we will remain CLOSED to the public on Mondays, but from NEXT WEEK we will be open as follows:
Mondays to Fridays 9am-10am: Collection of pre-paid orders by prior arrangement only.
Tuesdays to Sundays 10am-11am: Pre-booked shopping appointments only, for those who want to be guaranteed entry and a parking space.
Tuesdays to Sundays 11am-4pm: General shopping – no need to book.
To ensure safe and enjoyable visits for all, we will be maintaining all hygiene and distancing measures as before, and will be regulating the number of people on site and vehicles in the car park as necessary.
Appointments can be booked through our website www.katiesgarden.co.uk/visit and by calling us on 01473 736717.
If you are classed as vulnerable and are unable to come during our reserved times please give us a call and we will see what we can do to accommodate you.
We look forward to seeing you!
We've been reflecting on how last week went for everyone and as a result, we're going to introduce pre-booked slots for all visits to Katie's Garden from Wednesday 20th May.
It's really important to us that our customers have a comfortable experience when visiting; that our staff and neighbours are also safe. During our first week of opening there were times when visitors had to queue to enter; when our car park was full, and when the traffic impacted our neighbourhood. Our apologies to everyone affected.
So, for the time being we will now be operating pre-booked times at 15 minute intervals for:
Collection 9am-11am (for prepaid orders) Monday-Friday
Shopping 11am-3.30pm (for all visitors) Wednesday-Sunday. We'll be booking arrival times, you are welcome to shop for as long as you wish
Knowing you have a car park space and shopping slot awaiting you should ensure a much more relaxing trip - gardening is about enjoyment after all!
To book your slot please click here
Following today's Government announcement we will be reopening our Newbourne nursery with restrictions. The safety of both our staff and our customers is paramount, so please take careful note of measures in place.
CLOSED Mondays and Tuesdays
Open 11am-4pm Wednesdays to Sundays
We will not be allowing people onsite outside of these times. Staff need to be able to work in retail areas (watering, restocking etc) and the reduced opening hours are to allow them time to do this safely.
We will be honouring all orders placed for our home delivery service, and will be continuing this service for our vulnerable customers. If you now wish to collect your order please phone us to book a collection slot.
The number of customers allowed on site at any one time will be restricted and you might be asked to wait in the car park. The number of customers allowed inside the glasshouse will be restricted further. If you come with another person we will be asking you to stay closely together. We appreciate that people like to come to a nursery to look at the plants, pick them up and read the labels, but we will be asking that you minimise the number of plants and labels you handle for everyone's wellbeing.
We thank you all for your support and cooperation.
Our new home delivery service has been hugely popular - we are very pleased and grateful for everyone's custom ... but we are also overwhelmed.
We are sending email acknowledgments for all orders received ... but it might take a few days - so please give us some time before chasing us as otherwise it fills up our inbox even more.
It might then be up to two weeks before someone contacts you by phone to discuss your order and arrange payment, although we hope it will be much sooner. We then hope to deliver your order within seven days of this phone call.
Help us to help you. We have put up a large amount of information on what plants are available so please take a look:
It is still early in the season for summer bedding plants: if you do not see the patio/basket plant you want listed on the Summer patio plants page then please check back in a few weeks because we don't have it now.
Roses, trees, climbers and fruit bush pdf lists are definitive: if it is not on these lists, sorry, we don't have it. Please also check the herbs list, which covers virtually all the varieties we have at the moment. We do not have full lists of the shrubs, perennials and alpines we have so do please ask.
As our range changes so rapidly at this time of year we reserve the right to make close substitutions when necessary.
If you are easy-going on selection then a budget for us to work to is very helpful. Take a look at the Plant Packs page to help us know the style of gardening you are after.
We do not sell seeds, sundries or fertilisers.
We are currently closed to the public but have set up a new Home Delivery service. Head there for everything you need to know.
We have added lots of information to help you choose the right plants for you, including photos, stock lists, plant packs and our own recommendations.
