The GCA is encouraging members to get involved in next year’s Garden Re-Leaf Day taking place in March (2013) by hosting a Celebrity Gardening Quiz.
The GCA wants centres to sign up and host a quiz, which can be held between March 7 and March 9 to help raise money for Greenfingers.
GCA chairman Peter Burks said: "We are inviting garden centres to sign up as soon as possible to hold a Celebrity Gardening Quiz. All the proceeds from Garden Re-Leaf Day 2013 will be given to Greenfingers, which creates gardens at children’s hospices nationwide.
"The event is similar to a pub quiz and will be held at our members’ garden centres for customers and staff. The questions will be set and recorded by TV and radio gardeners including Christine Walkden and Peter Seabrook.
"Once your centre has signed up you will receive everything you need to host the event.
"We also suggest that participating garden centres organise additional fundraising activities during the quiz such as a tombola."
Garden Re-Leaf Day, which is a nationwide initiative, aims to encourage members of the horticultural industry to mark the start of the spring gardening season by organising events or activities. As well as creating awareness of gardening, one of the main aims of the day is to raise money for Greenfingers.Members can hold a quiz at anytime between March 7 and March 9.
