We haven’t blogged for a while (since December!) because we have been working on bringing you a new and improved Green Pastures for the spring. You may have seen our new buildings going up but they are only part of the story!
We’re not just bringing you a new indoor shopping experience, we have also renovated our outside areas and added a new all weather plant sales canopy. There is now more space to shop – protected from the elements – and a wider (and ever-increasing) range of plants. We will be able to create much more exciting displays and have extended our range of outdoor garden items such as trellis and pots.
We’re nearly ready to let you in to our new garden shop. We know you have been patient – not long now!
Our hugely extended sales area means that you will be able to browse our many new products in comfort. Our new product lines include:
- A wide range of garden tools
- Watering equipment
- Gloves & footwear
- Hanging baskets and accessories
- Bird care
- Outdoor lighting
- Dog food and accessories
- New, wider, range of greetings cards to compliment our new Post Office
Alongside this will be a much larger payment area to make your shopping experience easier. We are currently finishing installing the insulation and an under-floor heating system and we are aiming to open as close to Easter as we possibly can!
The jewel in our crown however, is definitely our new ‘Gardeners’ Kitchen’ restaurant and cafe. Whether you are looking for a light snack and a hot drink or a full meal you can feel at home and take a break from your shopping, all the while looking out on to our beautiful plants.
Last, but by no means least, we are very proud to be able to reintroduce a local Post Office to our village, Bergh Apton. We will be almost the very first garden centre (we know of one other!) in the UK to provide an in-house Post Office. Vital to our local community who have supported us over the years, this will be open sometime in the spring. The opening date is currently being finalised, so watch this space!
As you can probably tell, we are very excited about all the developments and will let you know as soon as you can come along to see the new growth!
