They can be used in the main store and café (not Crossley garden Buildings) and change is given by credit note so you don’t need to spend it at once!

The Waspinator

You might have seen the Waspinator on This Morning or Monty Don using it last year on Gardener’s World. It’s used to stop wasps setting up home in your garden, pergola, shed, play area etc. – particularly in a spot they’ve used before. It’s chemical free, there are no dead wasps, no mess and no cleaning up. Sound too good to be true? Well, we usually find we have a wasp nest on the walkway between our two buildings. So last year we suspended a Waspinator from the wooden canopy (you’ll see it hanging to the right of the Riverside Building doors) and it worked. It fools the wasps into thinking other wasps have already set up home in that spot and so they go off and find a new home! Wasps do some good work in the garden but this product keeps them away from areas where they might annoy you and moves them elsewhere.
Anyway, the Waspinator is now in stock – it comes in a pack of two. Don’t wait for the wasps to set up home – hang the Waspinator up first.wasp1
