November // Hygge

HYGGE
(Noun)

A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. (Oxford English Dictionary).

If there’s one word that sums us Gardeners up at this time of year it is this… A relatively new word to British shores admittedly but isn’t it just everything that we need at this time of year? The days are shorter. The air is cooler. And the call of cosy is just too much for us. So this month, we’re going all out on hygge. It’s our theme for the month and we can’t wait to welcome you as we tempt you with yet more new items on the menu (pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween you know…).

Come hug a mug of one of our rainbow lattes. A warm welcome awaits you..

SEASONAL VEG OF THE MONTH

Pumpkin

Pumpkins and other orange fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, winter squash, sweet potatoes, papayas and mangoes, are bursting with carotenoids. Carotenoids are fierce pigments that multitask to keep you healthy. They destroy harmful free radicals and reduce inflammation—a known culprit in many chronic diseases, including heart disease, colitis and asthma. They also prevent the build up of fatty plaques in your arteries that can lead to heart disease and stroke.
