Stewart Garden inspires Scotsdales Garden Centre to boost planter sales

by | Jul 28, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Scotsdales Garden Centre in Cambridge has created a series of stunning displays in its designed gardens using Stewart Garden decorative planters, inspired by Stewart Garden?s partnership with Ball Colegrave

Stewart Garden Lead Effect Planters and the popular Varese range in sandstone, granite and dark brown, take centre stage in Scotsdales Garden Centre?s displays.

Stewart Garden had a major presence at this year?s Ball Colegrave Summer Showcase at Milton, near Banbury in July, where exhibits included schemes pairing Ball Colegrave?s plants with Stewart Garden?s Varese, Lead Effect, Blenheim and Sylvan planters. Also unmissable was a striking red geranium display in the Stewart Garden Corinthian Black planter.

Caroline Owen, owner of Scotsdales Garden Centre, Cambridge, said: ?When we visited Ball Colegrave?s Summer Showcase, it was clear that its plants and Stewart Garden?s planters complemented one another beautifully. We knew a similar display would have great appeal among our customers. The designs we created have had a very positive effect on our planter sales, with Varese in sandstone proving particularly popular.?

Stewart Garden?s contemporary Varese planters have an authentic textured appearance with all the benefits of high-grade plastic. This means they?re durable, affordable and lightweight, making them ideal for creating a stylish architectural garden feature and especially suitable for palms.

Launched at Glee in 2015, the Varese planters collection has gone from strength to strength, exceeding its targeted growth. The elegant, Italian inspired planter is now available in dark brown, sandstone and granite and in two new sizes, medium (55cm) and low (35cm).

Scotsdales, an independent garden centre with three branches in Cambridgeshire, has been established for over half a century. With its deep experience, the business has a solid understanding of what its customers want when shopping for their homes and gardens
