Squire's Plantathon attracts star guests

Squire's Garden Centres are holding a 24-hour "Plant-athon" on 17-18 March to raise money for Greenfingers.

The 24-hour Plant-athon will start on 17 March at 2pm at Squire’s in Badshot Lea (near Farnham), and will then move to Squire’s in Twickenham overnight, finishing on 18 March at 2pm.  Customers can come along to watch the Plant-athon, get hints and tips, ask gardening questions, and even roll up their sleeves and get involved in the planting.  Specially planted up Spring pots from the Plant-athon will be sold, and 20 per cent from each sale will be given to Greenfingers. 

Squire’s managing director Dennis Espley is leading the Plant-athon, and he will be planting day and night. Some very special guests will be joining him at Squire’s in Twickenham on 18 March including Andrew Gill (President of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture) and Andy McIndoe (holder of 25 Gold Medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show).
