Summer is on its way

Whatever your gardening needs, make sure you head to The Arium for inspiration and advice. Visit The Arium this summer. It’s so much more than a nursery.



Now is the perfect time to plant your summer bedding plants and perennials, ready to provide a spectacular array of colour throughout the summer months. The Arium produces over a million summer bedding plants each year, with many used to create fabulous displays across the city, towns, and villages of Leeds. This still leaves plenty of high-quality plants for your garden, perfect for the borders, patio, or balcony. Choose from all the favourites including: Alyssum; Cosmos; Dahlia; Geraniums; Impatiens; Marigolds and many more.


The Arium has an assortment of ready-planted containers with flowers and alpines. Alternatively, you can design your own - there’s a huge selection of outdoor containers in a range of materials, along with compost and all the gardening tools you’ll ever need. For advice on what to use, just ask the friendly nursery team.


Brighten up the garden with the ever-popular Begonia, Petunia or Argyranthemum - these cheerful annuals will provide an impressive display of colour in your borders or containers throughout the summer. May is the month to admire the magnificent Rhododendrons in parks and woodlands, but you can recreate the magic in your own garden by planting them in flower. Choose varieties to complement your seasonal plants and enjoy bigger, better displays for years to come. Their outdoor living collection features the perfect furniture to suit your space.


Be the best hosts with a quality barbecue and spend the evenings around the fire pit with family and friends. Enhance your outdoor haven with wonderful solar lighting, keep cool with parasols or gazebos, and add the finishing touch with beautiful garden mirrors. There’s an excellent selection of the finest quality produce in the delicatessen section, carefully selected with you in mind. They stock only the tastiest of products, with many being used in Café Arium’s delicious menu.


Enjoy a visit to the newly-refurbished café, with spectacular views across the glasshouse. In May, the new summer menu will feature freshly made salads and baguettes, bringing fresh flavours and ingredients from fantastic local suppliers. For the ultimate indulgence, opt for Luxury Afternoon Tea. Tuck into a delicious spread of sandwiches, homemade scones with jam and cream and scrumptious sweet treats, followed by unlimited tea or coffee. Advance booking is required - book now by emailing arium@leeds.gov.uk. Go on and treat yourself.


There really is something for everyone at The Arium - the outdoor playground provides a wonderful way for children to run off excess energy, make friends and have fun. On a glorious summer’s day, grab a refreshment and Northern Bloc ice cream from The Potting Shed and sit back whilst enjoying the outdoors. Be sure to visit The Arium soon.
