We start filling summer hanging baskets from mid April and they are ready to be bought 'off the peg' from May onwards.
We use fresh moss in our wire baskets, which range from 12" up to 18" diameter, and we also fill a large selection of wicker cones and round baskets in sizes ranging from 12" to 16". Alternatively you can order a basket of your choice to the colour you require. Winter baskets are available from mid September, filled with a colourful mixture of pansies, heathers, ivy and small shrubs.
We start refilling from mid April onwards, simply bring in your basket(s) and we will measure them and give you a quotation.
Our price is for plants, compost, liner, filling the basket and hanging it in our greenhouses for anything up to six weeks depending on how early you bring the baskets in. We can do colour themes, or mixed colours, and we can do matching baskets or all different, whatever you fancy! Simply tell us and we will do the rest. Winter refills don't need the same growing time so can be brought in one day and collected a couple of days later.
We were delighted to once again refill the hanging baskets for the Best Western West Retford Hotel during 2019, as well as refilling all the hanging baskets for the Retford in Bloom and Harworth in Bloom schemes.
They were displayed all summer above shops and businesses in the town centre, and maintained by Acer Landscapes Design and Construction Ltd. Last year (2020) the scheme was put on hold due to lockdown.
We are completely 'customer orientated' and will always greet our visitors with a cheery 'good morning' or 'hello'.
We love to make sure our plants go to the right home, and will happily advise customers about planting combinations, or where best to site a specific variety. Please ask for advice and we will be delighted to walk around the plant centre with you, but we will also leave you to browse if you'd prefer that. We don't like to appear 'pushy' but we do like to be friendly!
Please note we are unable to make visits to customers to advise nor do we draw up designs or plant gardens.
We are members of the Horticultural Trades Association and can sell and accept the National Garden Gift Vouchers.
Please note these are the paper vouchers and not the HTA plastic garden gift cards (the HTA is currently in the process of changing it's card processing supplier and will be supplying us with a specific gift card terminal so that we will eventually be able once again to accept these, but due to Covid this has been delayed! ) Windmill View also has its own range of gift vouchers to be redeemed here.
