As the clocks have gone forward and days are longer, we start to welcome lighter spring evenings and say goodbye to the bitterness of winter. And as lockdown rules begin to relax, we can start planning to invite family and friends over for gatherings in our homes and gardens. With the first few sunny spring days underway, we’ve already had a glimpse of the warmer months ahead and now it’s time to get your house and garden ready for summer. Read on to find out how Plumbs’ Dairy can help you prepare your home.

Having an outside space is something many of us have appreciated more than ever over the past year, providing an escape from working from home and a place to unwind and relax. It’s important to make the most of whatever outside space you have, whether it’s a balcony, small courtyard or a bigger garden. Now is the time to prepare our outside spaces for weekend brunches in the sun and al fresco dining. For some it may be a case of maintaining our current space, or a time for others to plan and create a new and exciting outdoor area.

Adding some colour to your garden with some simple flower beds can help to add character, and here at Plumbs’, our range of garden products can help to enhance whatever you are growing! From our Organic Soil Improver, to our Professional Potting Blend to our Organic Fine Grade Lawn Dressing; whether you want to keep your grass looking healthy and green or your flowers bright and blossomed, our products will help you. You don’t need to be particularly green fingered either, as a simple herb garden is great for cooking enthusiasts, and for those who are a bit more adventurous – growing your own vegetables is fantastic for sustainable cooking. Is there anything better than serving a delicious meal from the food that you’ve grown? At Plumbs’ Dairy, we sell a whole range of fresh, organic and locally sourced products too, including our fruit and veg boxes, why not take a look!

Of course we don’t spend the whole summer outside, as living in England we are known to see rainy days between the sun too! So why not give your house a spring clean and freshen up before summer arrives. At Plumbs’ Dairy, we stock organic and environmentally friendly cleaning products, such as Greenscents’ Laundry Liquids and Fabric Conditioners, Washing Up Liquids and Surface Cleaners, check out the full range here! Your home will feel fresher than ever and best of all is that the products are kind to the environment and your skin – the products don’t use environmentally damaging chemicals and their packaging is 100% recyclable. Your house will smell wonderful too as some products are scented in fragrances that encourage calm and wellness – something that can be welcomed into every home.

Summer is a social time of year, and whether you’re looking to host the best BBQ of the year, venture out with a picnic or have friends over for the ultimate brunch, at Plumb’s we’ve got all your summer essentials covered. So you can truly be the host with the most.

Of course, the best part about our range of products is that they’re not only local, but they can all be delivered straight to your front door. Which means no queueing in the shops or getting stuck in traffic. Instead, you can spend your time sprucing up your home ready for your guests.

No matter the social event of summer, here are our essentials that you should add to your next order.

BBQ meat

No BBQ gets a good reputation without premium quality meat, which is why you need our delicious sausages and bacon.

Of course, no BBQ is complete without a good range of accompaniments, so we would highly recommend creating a delicious homemade coleslaw or fresh potato salad. Or if you’re really feeling experimental, why not try to bake your own homemade brioche buns?

BBQ Charcoal 

Don’t leave it until the last minute and risk a coal shortage at your local petrol station! Add it to your next order and have it delivered straight to your door.

Fruit box

Summer and fruit go hand in hand. Whether you’re making a fresh fruit salad or simply snacking, we’ve got a box with a variety of seasonal fruits.

You can even make a healthy breakfast by making fresh fruit with one of with Longley Farm or Tims Dairy yoghurts.

Honey & Marmalade

Brunch has to be Britain’s favourite meal. After all, what’s more fun than combining two meals into one long meal with friends?

If you’re big on brunching and want to host a summer brunch of your own, we have locally produced honey and marmalade that will know the socks off your guests.

Whether it’s smothered on warm, buttery toast, or drizzled on pancakes, these high-quality preserves provide a taste sensation for those with a sweet tooth.

Natural Yoghurt

This year we became a supplier of Tim’s natural yoghurt.

As well as a lighter option for a sweet treat, Tim’s yoghurt is also perfect for the little ones on a hot summer’s day. From giving them a pot with some fresh fruit to freezing it and making the yoghurt into yoghurt pops. With such a range of flavours, including raspberry and toffee, it will keep the kids cool and easily pleased.

However, if you fancy a healthy but seriously tasty treat, we recommend adding Stour Valley Apiaries Honey to a pot of Tim’s Greek Yogurt.

With a full range of fresh and local produce ready to make your summer the tastiest yet, don’t forget to add these essentials to your next Plumb’s order.
