Midlands garden centre promotes British-grown

Studley Garden Centre in the Midlands is spearheading a new campaign to promote British grown produce, by setting up special promotional ‘Brit Pots’ stands showcasing the very best of British plants.

The centre, which sources over 80 per cent of its plants from UK soil, will be setting up several ‘Brit Pots’ stands displaying the best of British grown plants to raise awareness of the benefits of choosing plants grown on home soil.

Hillier Nurseries will be on site on Thursday, May 30 from 11am-4pm providing advice on how to get the very best from the British plants on offer.

From May 28-31, during the half term period, Studley will host a children's ‘Plant Hunter Trail’.

Youngsters tracking down all 10 ‘Plant Hunter Pictures’ hidden around the garden centre will be entered into a prize draw, with the winner receiving a £10 gift voucher for the garden centre.
