Bents embraces RHS National Gardening Week

Bents Home and Garden will be part of the RHS National Gardening Week from 16 April.

Bents MD Matthew Bent said:  "The event is a great opportunity to promote the many different benefits gardening can bring to a new audience; people who might not yet be confident about tackling their garden, but have a desire to give it a go.

"Gardening is a great past time which can not only bring a huge amount of pleasure but is a great way of staying fit and healthy and provides the perfect opportunity for children to get outdoors and discover more about nature and their environment."

Nurseries, garden centres, garden clubs, charities, schools and the media are all being urged to get involved.

Bents has planned a week full of events and demonstrations.  

Bents’ resident Plant Doctor will be in residence to diagnose problem plants and provide advice and recommendations for the best possible solutions.  A charity raffle for Bents’ Charity of the year will also be taking place with the opportunity to win a fantastic planted container.

Bents has also liked up with Warrington’splay centre, The Jungle, to encourage children to get involved during National Gardening Week.  Bents has provided The Jungle’s team with all the soil, seeds and training needed to hold planting workshops throughout the week.
