Squires garden centre has pledged to donate more than 200,000 plants to public spaces after the success of a single campaign.
Squires in Stanmore stepped up its offer to beautify several areas across the South East. This is after it donated 19,000 tulip bulbs to Bernays Garden in Harrow.
?
The gift came through the ?Love Where You Live? campaign. Squires donated 10 bulbs for each bag of bulbs bought by customers in September.
?
Squires team members and volunteers from Bernays Garden Community Group, planted the tulip bulbs on October 8.
Victoria Seco from Bernays Gardens Community Group said: ?A very big thank you to Squires Garden Centre.
?
?We are so grateful for their huge donation of tulip bulbs and for their ongoing support. Thank you from us all.?
?
Sarah Squire added: ?We’re overwhelmed by the response to our ?Love Where You Live? campaign. We are very grateful for the support our family business receives from local people.
?
?It?s fantastic to be able to give something back to the communities where we are. Autumn is the best time of year to plant spring flowering bulbs.
?
??Tulip tarda? is the variety we have donated. It has clusters of beautiful yellow and white fragrant star-shaped flowers.
?
“It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit. I am sure that it will produce a spectacular display of colour come next springtime.?
