Notcutts Cranleigh unveils spectacular display garden

by | Jul 31, 2018 | Chains, News | 0 comments

Notcutts Garden Centre in Cranleigh has hosted a special ribbon cutting event to celebrate the opening of a new display garden.

The garden has been designed to inspire local gardeners with creative planting ideas.

Caroline Notcutt, Vice-Chairman and Great-Granddaughter of founder Roger Crompton Notcutt, officially opened the display garden on 27th July.

The Mayor of Waverley Councillor Denise Le Gal, local VIPs, customers and the Notcutts team joined Caroline at the unveiling.

The Notcutts Garden is probably a permanent display at the Cranleigh Garden Centre, with ideas and inspiration for brightening borders or designing gardens from scratch.

‘Tranquility’ is the theme of the Notcutts display garden

Specifically, the theme of the garden is tranquillity, with a large water feature and contemporary pergola draped in Clematis.

Over 200 plants of 30 different varieties feature in the garden. This includes the popular Peony Shirley Temple, Foxgloves, Festuca blue grass and Tasmanian tree ferns.

In addition to those, common silver birch and Himalayan birch trees from Tuscany create shade and shelter. Rhododendron and Azalea each add a burst of colour.

The garden took just over three weeks to complete. The design and build was led by Marco de Jongh, Stuart Andrews and Luke Rawson.

Commenting on the garden, Richard Hamlyn, General Manager at Cranleigh, said: ?The Notcutts Garden creates a calming space for customers to enjoy and feel inspired. For that reason, it is a fantastic addition to our garden centre.

“Thank you to all who joined us for our special garden opening event.

?The garden celebrates the best of what we do at Notcutts.

“Our customers in Cranleigh will be inspired by our 120 years? experience in addition to our 50 Gold medals won at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.?

Free to visit

Presently, the garden is free to visit all year round on Guildford Road, Cranleigh.

Overall, many of Notcutts? 18 garden centres nationwide have a special display garden, each with different themes and designs.
