The garden was opened by Nicky Dulieu, chairman of Notcutts’ 18 garden centres nationwide, alongside Councillor Tony Harman, Spelthorne Borough Councillor for the Riverside and Laleham ward.
The Notcutts Garden, designed by the Notcutts team, has a Mediterranean theme. The garden features 400 plants, most of which are sun-loving, drought-hardy plants from 50 different varieties.
The Table feature is the focal point of the garden laid out as dining table, planted with a range of succulent alpine plants. A Mediterranean-style design with paved path and gravel walkway leads visitors through an array of colourful shrubs, exotic plants and shady trees.
The garden was designed by Notcutts’ head of visual merchandising Marco de Jongh and plant buyer, Stuart Andrews, and took just over two weeks to complete. It is a permanent display at the Staines garden centre, as a celebration of Notcutts’ expert horticultural knowledge.
Matt Ellis, centre manager at Notcutts Staines said: "We hope local gardeners will come and visit the garden and will take home lots of inspiring ideas for their own outdoor projects."
The Notcutts Garden is free to visit all year round at Notcutts Staines, and is one of the first of Notcutts’ 18 garden centres across the country to open a garden of this kind for customers. Throughout 2017, which marks Notcutts’ 120th anniversary year, further gardens will open at other centres.
