Coblands Plant Centre holds first garden designer open day to fulfil demand for mid-size shrubs

Glendale's Cobland Plant Centre in Kent is holding its inaugural plant showcase this month.

Glendale Horticulture will launch its new Plant Showcase at its Coblands Plant Centre in Sevenoaks, Kent on 25 April from 8am - 1pm.
Glendale Horticulture produces over 18 million plants per year across its nurseries in Kent, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Lancashire, with access to millions more and has supplied many show gardens over recent years, including the gold award winning ‘The Dogs Trust, A Dog’s Life’ garden at Hampton Court in 2016.
Garden designers and the trade are invited to the Plant Showcase Open Day where a selection of specimen plants will be on display, ideal for preparing show gardens or landscaping projects.
Garden design head Lewis Normand said: "We're delighted to be launching our new Plant Showcase at our Plant Centre in Sevenoaks. Having recognised a need from our garden designer clients to hold a stock of interesting mid-sized shrubs that can be used to enliven a planting project, we've been developing a range of plants this winter."
