Welcome to Hill Foot Garden Centre,
Hill Foot is a family run garden centre on the edge of Ulverston in the south lakes area of Cumbria.
Turn clay soils
Turn clay soil while it's still dry and reasonably manageable, leaving it in large lumps over winter so that the frost can help break it down. You'll find once the big clods are shattered by freezing they'll be much easier to work in spring: add well-rotted organic matter to boost nutrients, too.

Plant of the Week: Dahlias
These flamboyant Mexican beauties are a must-have in late summer, lifting borders with dazzling displays from August till the first frost. The range is expanding all the time, so you’re sure to find one to suit your tastes.
Big, blowsy pompom and cactus dahlias like ‘Rip City’ and ‘Chat Noir’ lend a touch of glamour; or for the simplicity of single flowers go for ever-popular scarlet ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ or purest white ‘Twyning’s After Eight’ – both with purple foliage. And for the natural look, try species dahlias with delicate flowers held on wiry stems: Dahlia coccinea is brilliant orangey-red, while D. merckii is lilac with a yellow eye.
