Hambrook Landscapes opened Hampshire?s first garden destination centre today where visitors were invited to experience the unusual, the interesting and the different.
Sixteen exquisite show gardens representing the next frontier in landscape design were on display at the centre in Titchfield, all masterfully designed by head designer, Mike Hodges.
With 45 years experience, the business has developed from a small holding to a plant centre and then garden centre. Today?s event heralds the next stage in the development of the company.
Norman Hambrook, founder of the business said: ?Pushing the boundaries in business takes guts, vision and know-how. We have dared to be different and this pinnacle of success is 45 years in the making?
Jamie Wilkinson, visiting on behalf of Pro Landscaper magazine said: ?It was great to see the gardens at the garden destination centre – Norman is a true entrepreneur and his personal tour around the gardens would inspire anyone!?
Today?s exciting event demonstrates how the industry has developed over the past 40 years, with a move from nurseries to destination garden centres offering a wide range of retail products and now garden design.
