Garden centre opens in Somerset

The Growing Medium garden centre has opened in Wincanton, Somerset.

The centre is owned by landscaper Andy Cole of Lifestyle Landscapes, and will sell plants and natural crystals.

"Customers will be able to read all about the spiritual and healing properties of the plants we stock," said Cole.

"There’ll be a changing exhibition of plants and their aura photographs and the best place to plant them in the garden for maximum spiritual benefit.

"The common misconception is that it’s only herbs which have such properties, but in fact it’s all plants. For example, the foxglove is used to make medicine which treats heart disease, and if you have heart problems it’s a perfect plant to have in your garden – along with roses – as they are both associated with the heart."
