Angel Gardens
Louise Mawditt has opened Angel Gardens at Mill Farm Country Retail in Stanford Bridge outside Worcester.
?
The new centre stocks a selection of perennials, winter bedding, shrubs and trees.
?
Mrs Mawditt said: “I also sell in my shop gardening essentials along with fresh cut flowers, autumn wreaths, wood craft, art and gifts for the gardener.
?
“So far the business is going well and I love everything about it.
?
“Some of the crafts I sell are local. I love that I can stock products made to such high standards by small traders.”
?
“I am qualified as a gardener. I work in many gardens around Abberley and the surrounding area. I am having to stop this as the shop is taking up too much of my time.”
?
Mrs Mawditt said that Angel Gardens started 11 years ago as a landscape business.
?
“One evening back in April whilst having a discussion about gardening in our local, a friend said I should think about opening a garden centre. That planted the seed,” she said.
?
“I open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 3pm.
?
“But we will be opening more days and hours next year.
?
“I am also planning to sell Christmas trees and wreaths later in the year.”
?
The firm, which first opened in May, has also started selling gift vouchers exclusive to Angel Gardens. Mrs Mawditt says these are ideal for birthday, weddings, anniversaries.
