Haskins Garden Centre

We're delighted to announce that our restaurants are open again today. 😊 🍽️ 🍰 β˜•οΈ

Please help us by following the new rules. The government's Tier 2 guidelines are now in place, meaning you are only permitted to dine with your household in our restaurants. Unfortunately, this means no mixed groups.

On arrival, you will need to check in for NHS test and trace purposes. Please also keep your distance from other households at all times. We have installed extra partition screens for your comfort.

Please also be aware that we're only accepting cards payments, not cash.

All that being said, we've got some great festive treats awaiting you πŸŽ„βœ¨πŸ½οΈ

Will your cafe be open from tomorrow

Timeline PhotosThe Government has announced that the Dorset Council area will exit out of national restrictions (lockdown) into Tier 2 (High Alert) on Wednesday 2 December. The main restrictions under Tier 2 are:
- No mixing of households indoors, apart from support bubbles.
- Pubs and bars must remain closed, unless operating as restaurants.

We understand that the Government will review this tiering on 16 December.

Please watch our LIVE public briefing on COVID tonight at 7pm to hear more from Sam Crowe, Director of Public Health Dorset, on what this means for us all. orlo.uk/1UWUC

Great,can't wait to visit your lovely cafe 😊.

Most important question; can your cafe open whilst we are in tier 2?

Hi all I haven’t had chance to watch the live feed. Does anybody know when Haskins will be open ?

Will you be doing your Christmas lunches in December? I always bring the family and then pick our tree!

I agree... we’re missing giant scones and breakfast!!

Miss the crowds and enjoy safer shopping at its best with our later opening every Thursday and Friday.

It's perfect for picking up your Christmas tree πŸŽ„πŸŒŸπŸŽ„πŸŒŸπŸŽ„

Let us know when dogs are allowed again, and we'll be back. Hopefully not too far into the future! 😊

Once their leaves have fallen, fruit trees can be pruned anytime up until late winter.

During the first few years, pruning should concentrate on getting the shape right as this will form the structure of the tree. Later on, pruning should be done to encourage fruit production.

The trick is to identify the new growth, which is paler and more flexible than old wood, and to differentiate between the slender oval shaped buds that will grow into new shoots and the rounder buds that will form fruits.

Once any dead, dying, diseased, rubbing and crossing branches have been removed, you can look for the fruiting spurs. Most trees bear their fruits on short side shoots growing out from the branches and these can be shortened to about 3 buds.
