Squires centres compete in easy gardening competition

by | Oct 18, 2018 | News | 0 comments

Squires Garden Centres recently held a competition between each of their garden centres.
The aim was to show customers that gardening can be really easy.
Squires hoped to dispel some of the myths around gardening and encourage visitors to take the plunge.
The purpose of Squires ?Easy Gardening? competition was to inspire customers. Squires did this with simple, cost-effective, creative ideas that could be replicated at home.
Colin Squire and his daughter Sarah, judged the competition. Squires in Milford won the ?Best Focal Point? award. Squire?s in Chertsey won the award for ?Best Showcasing Of Easy Gardening?.
Commenting on the winners Sarah Squire said: ?Squires in Milford won the ?Best Focal Point? award.
“We thought that their design captured every element of the competition. It looked stunning and was full of really good easy gardening ideas from plants to products.
“The use of the gazebo gave height and made the display stand out from wherever you were in the plant area.
“Plus everything was well explained to show customers how to re-create the look in their own garden.
We gave Squire?s in Chertsey the ?Best Showcasing Of Easy Gardening? award.
“They had some great ideas for how to get the best out of a small urban space.
“The use of the two levels here was clever, with pots hanging on the railings, and even a ?tea for two? set on the balcony. It shows people how to create height even when space is limited.?
