McKeever aims to help garden centres display plants better, as he has previously done with Lovania at garden centre planterias and flower shows. "This is something I achieved with my previous company when looking at displays," he said.

McKeever is bringing a new vertical garden product to the market that gardeners can use inside or outside. He added: "This is a new way of displaying that will change the way we look at gardening."

A display at this August's Southport Flower Show showed the idea. Gareth Powell from Ornamental Plants has showcased the wall of plants idea to Choice members.
