Potato seeds available at Perrywood

Available in-store in January

If you haven’t been in recently here is a quick round-up of what’s looking good:

  • In our Gift Shop this month we are creating new displays with fresh spring lime greens, yellows and creams in abundance. You’ll be sure to find something to fill the bare space left by your Christmas decorations which we hope are back in the loft or cupboard by now!  We have lots of silk flower stems which look fantastic in vases or more formal arrangements and are very easy to maintain.  If you have presents to buy for friends and family we have lots to choose from including picture frames, pictures, cookware, scarves and scented candles.
