Green Pastures was very proud to be involved in a major horticultural conference in London last week. James, one of our owners, was invited to speak at the “Garden Retail Summit” which was attended by fellow directors and executives from the Garden Centre industry.
James was part of a panel of three garden centre owners from the independent sector who had all recently carried out major development works to their businesses. James was able to give a short presentation on the “old and new Green Pastures” and explain the reasoning behind our decisions. The panel were then invited to ask a number of questions from the floor based upon their recent experiences and give advice to other garden centre businesses considering making similar improvements.
The summit followed the Garden Retail Awards held the evening before when Green Pastures was awarded the “Garden Centre Outlet of the Year” (medium size centres) and “Catering Excellence” trophies.
