I WOULD like to encourage everyone to support local businesses as much as possible at the moment.

I have just found out through ringing Hayes garden centre that you can place telephone orders for local delivery which costs £10. They deliver to Kendal.

I've managed to buy seeds compost and alpine plants .

The website has other things but if you phone direct they can tell you what's available in store.

The number is 01539 433434.

They are very helpful

(I have no financial links with them! )
