Notcutts in Staines inspires customers with Mediterranean-style display garden

by | Jul 24, 2017 | News | 0 comments

Notcutts Garden Centre in Staines has held a special ribbon cutting event to mark the opening of a new ?Notcutts Garden?, designed to inspire local gardeners with creative ideas for their own outdoor spaces. The ribbon was cut by Nicky Dulieu, chairman of Notcutts? 18 garden centres nationwide, alongside Councillor Tony Harman, Spelthorne Borough Councillor for the Riverside and Laleham ward, customers and the team at Notcutts Staines.

The Notcutts Garden, designed by the expert Notcutts team, is filled with beautiful plant combinations and aromas with a Mediterranean theme. The garden features over 400 plants in total, most of which are sun-loving, drought-hardy plants from 50 different varieties. The Table feature is the focal point of the garden laid out as dining table, planted with a range of succulent alpine plants. A Mediterranean-style design with paved path and gravel walkway leads visitors through an array of colourful shrubs, exotic plants and shady trees.

The garden was designed by Notcutts? head of visual merchandising, Marco de Jongh, and Plant Buyer, Stuart Andrews, and took just over two weeks to complete. It is a permanent display at the Staines garden centre, as a celebration of Notcutts? expert horticultural knowledge. Since 1897, Notcutts has won 50 Gold medals for designing their own show gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and has enjoyed sharing advice and design ideas for gardeners across the country over the years.

Matt Ellis, centre manager at Notcutts Staines said: ?Thank you to all who joined us in celebrating the official opening of our beautiful Notcutts Garden at Staines. We are proud to open our glorious garden for customers to enjoy, and are delighted to showcase the best of what we do at Notcutts. We hope local gardeners will come and visit the garden and will take home lots of inspiring ideas for their own outdoor projects.?

The Notcutts Garden is free to visit all year round at Notcutts Staines, and is one of the first of Notcutts? 18 garden centres across the country to open a garden of this kind for customers. Throughout 2017, which marks Notcutts? 120th anniversary year, further gardens will open at other centres.

Notcutts Staines is on Staines Road, Laleham, Staines TW18 2SF. For further information please call the centre on 01784 460 832 or visit
