Bents garden centre welcome RHS new garden

The planned RHS Garden Bridgewater is just 10km from the Glazebury garden centre Bents Home & Garden.

The RHS announced a planend fifth garden at Worsley in Salford last week.

Bents managing director Matthew Bent said: "The announcement of a fifth RHS garden in Salford is fantastic news for the region.  It will be great to have such a beautiful attraction so close to Bents as it will attract a lot of interest from outside the North West with new visitors coming to discover the area.   


"Bents is a very different proposition to that being put forward by the RHS but we would consider ourselves to be a complementary attraction and hope we might be able to work together to encourage people to get outside and enjoy nature and the environment.  


"It's is still a long time off and the plans are yet to be confirmed so it is hard to comment in specific detail, but any initiative that attracts an interest in gardening and gardens can only be a good thing."
