Tony’s Tips

Tony’s Tips has a bit of a cult following and so does Tony for that matter! We felt the obvious next step for a cult hero was to have him immortalised as a caricature. Some have said Tony looks a bit older in cartoon, but we think he looks fantastic for 35!

Tony’s been the face of Acorn Nursery for 29 years now and our customers flock to him for advice. We used to lock Tony away so he could write pages and pages of 'tips' every quarter, but these days people are wanting short, sharp and regular advice, so we’ve switched to one page monthly editions. Each month Tony’s Tips will remind you what jobs need doing, what’s good to plant and how to prepare for the month ahead.

For the unabridged version of Tony’s Tips and to hear it from the man himself, drop in and see Tony or one of our 7 qualified horticulturalists who can give you the same advice - the only difference is they don’t have their own cartoon alter egos (yet!).
