Gardeners in Yeovil, Sherborne and Dorchester invited to birthday celebrations

Added on 19 June 2007

Gardeners in Yeovil, Sherborne and Dorchester are invited to celebrate with The Gardens Group as it reaches milestones at each of its three Garden Centres. A week of events and special birthday celebrations will take place at each of the Garden Centres from June 25th until 1st July. In Yeovil, Brimsmore Gardens is 15 years old, in Sherborne, Castle Gardens is 20 years old, and the youngster of the group is Poundbury Gardens at just one year old!

Mike Burks, MD of The Gardens Group commented; "Over the 20 years since Castle Gardens opened, we have handled millions of plants, given thousands of talks and encouraged many young people to take up gardening. We thought it would be good to see the results of our customers' work in their own gardens. Also, we'd especially like to see photos of mature trees bought from us over the years as these really do shape the landscape we live in and we'll be presenting the person who has grown the tallest tree with a new tree as a prize."

Customers are being encouraged to bring in photos of their gardens and these will form a Gardeners' Gallery and at each Centre a prize will be awarded to the garden judged to be the most stunning. Also, there will be a birthday quiz and customers will be able to get up to 20% off their plants if they answer all the questions correctly!

To mark the special anniversaries there will be plenty of birthday treats for gardeners plus a treasure hunt and a chance to identify members of the team from embarrassing baby photos. As well as a Grand Birthday draw to win prizes valuing over £1,000.
