Garden Re-Leaf calls for garden centre registrations

A new website has been launched that allows garden centres to publicise their Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day events to customers, local and national press and a wider audience via social media.

Hundreds of garden retailers are expected to participate in the fourth, annual Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day, which takes place on 27 March 2015, to help boost the early spring sales season, while raising funds for Greenfingers, the small national charity dedicated to creating gardens in children’s hospices across the UK.
Garden centres wanting to take part should register on the website by filling in the form online at  Once registered, each individual event appears on the site’s ‘events’ section, and is searchable by area to help the public find their local participating garden centre. Early registration on the site will also mean events will have a chance to be publicised by the central Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day communications team.

Garden Re-Leaf Day founder, trustee of Greenfingers, and chief executive officer of Hillview Garden Centres Boyd Douglas-Davies said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for all garden retailers, especially those looking to ensure the best promotion of their fantastic Garden Re-Leaf Day events which is so important to the success of the day.  In just five minutes, you can fill in our online form, effortlessly setting the promotional ball rolling, putting yourself in front of customers, local people and the media."
The newly launched website features news, galleries of events from previous years and information on how the money raised is spent, including images of Greenfingers children’s hospice gardens which have already benefited from Garden Re-Leaf Day fundraising.

The organisers of Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day are ramping up promotional activity in time for the 27 March 2015. Some of the event ideas already on the cards include hosting the popular Greenfingers Garden Re-leaf Day Gardening Quiz; getting involved with the Loose Change promotion; simple yet unique ways to put on your own sponsored cycle ride; and fun family day activities such as making cress heads and sowing sunflowers – the Home Garden Association’s plant of the year for 2015.
