For our radio adverts this year, we want to know YOUR favourite and least favourite aspects of gardening. Asking around proved hugely entertaining and comforted us with the knowledge that here at St Bridget Nurseries we can often alleviate the pain of your most dreaded gardening tasks!
Listen to our radio advert here, or tune in to Heart Radio Exeter to hear it live!
Our conversation with this delightful lady introduced us to an unusual least favourite task; planting and ‘plomping ‘ the plants in. Whilst we searched high and low for the meaning of ‘plomping’ all we could find was a non-dictionary definition ‘to plomp’ as to sit down after a long and exhausting day. Despite no mention of planting, or in fact proof that the word exists, we have keenly adopted the word ‘plomping’. It is already a firm favourite in our St Bridget garden dictionary!
We also asked Tammy, our managing director, to share her most and least loved jobs in the garden.
Although Tammy really shouldn’t have favourites, when asked she replied this;
“Dead heading flowers is my favourite job, I find it so therapeutic and great for stress relief. My least favourite is definitely forking into heavy and hard clay soil, I always shout for help when it comes to that job!”
We’d love to hear what you love and hate doing in the garden, let us know on our FaceBook page by using our brand new hashtag #welovegardening.
For all those jobs you don’t love like “bending over and plomping” in the plants, our garden centre teams can help you find something to make these jobs a little more lovable!
