Gardens opened in Majestic Trees nursery

Majestic Trees, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, has officially opened two new gardens at its nursery near St Albans in Hertfordshire.

A show garden completed outside the tree grower's offices was designed by the winner of a competition run by Capel Manor College. The contest was open to graduates of the college's garden design course.

"We received some brilliant entries but decided that Helen Thomas's design was definitely the best," said Majestic Trees managing director Steve McCurdy.

"It's a very good use of space and it shows how you can plant trees even in a small garden."

Majestic has also opened a Planning for Planting demonstration garden, which is designed to help explain to customers the process of planting a tree, the associated products that are available and the decisions that need to be made.

Marketing and business development manager Christina Glynn Jones said: "Sometimes people do not understand how trees are planted - these trees are extremely large and you cannot just carry them down the garden path."

She added: "We decided to make the operation as simple as possible and understandable for everyone. Customers' eyes can often glaze over when we get to this stage and the garden will make this part of the process much more fun."
