  • Ice Cream Van service

    Tim Smith says:-

    To the community of Audlem, Cheshire and surrounding areas, I would like to introduce Jolly Lollies to you.

    My small business is based in Audlem, Cheshire. I invested in an old ice cream van and over the past year have renovated it into something I am proud to serve my delicious ice creams, retro ice lollies and cold drinks.

    I am keen to indulge myself into the community through summer fates, fayres and communal events whilst you indulge in our delicious Mr Whippy's.

    Whatever event you are planning, weddings, birthday parties, summer fates, I would love to be apart of it and I think Jolly Lollies is the sweet treat you’d be missing out on!

Nursery

  • SpecialPerennials.com

    Martin Blow writes :-

    We are Janet and Martin of Yew Tree House, Hall Lane. Under the name SpecialPerennials.com we grow plants selling at plant fairs, farmers' markets and by mail order. We can also offer a border design service helping you choose the rights plants for your garden.

    We grow a large variety of (mainly hardy) herbaceous perennials including garden favourites and many unusual and hard to find varieties you won't find at the garden centre. All our plants are home grown being tried out first in our own gardens and we are always happy to offer advice.

    We have a particular passion for Hemerocallis (Day Lily) with over 300 varieties and Helenium, over 70 varieties which represents more than 80% of those available anywhere in Britain. We aim to apply for National Plant Collection status for Heleniums early next year. This means we have a collection of national significance in terms of the number of varieties we grow and standards of cultivation we apply.

    Our website has lots of information and pictures taken in our garden. Browse our plants at SpecialPerennials.com or feel free to drop by and have a look. Please let all your gardening friends know!
