Cucumer plant 1

Despite the summer’s erratic weather, Nigel Young a regular customer of ours, enjoyed a glut of produce this year, with a particularly successful mini cucumber crop. Over the summer, Nigel kept count of his Hana F1 mini cucumbers, which he bought from us after missing out on his usual Tiny Tot variety, and recorded a whopping 422 cucumbers. The early cropper had a slow start in June but by the end of July he was already up to 220 fruits and the success didn’t stop there, in August it shot up to 409 before its final harvest in September.

Success stories like these put a huge smile on our face, so please do share them with us in store or online.

Huge congratulations to my good friend Rich Holder and his cycling partner Bill Beaumont, who completed 45-mile tandem ride and raised £7,000 for the MS Society. Poundbury Gardens marked the half way point, and all of the cyclists had a well earnt refuel in The Engine Room before cycling back to Sherborne.

Here are some images from the day, and you may even spot me on my bike too!

Castle Gardens - cropped

Recognised for their efforts to make a difference within the industry, our plant team at Castle Gardens was presented with the Silver award in The Greatest Plant Retailing Team category at Garden Trade News’ Greatest Awards, which was held at Glee.

This is another proud moment for The Gardens Group as our teams at all three centres work incredibly hard to make gardening more accessible for all, so it’s wonderful to receive such recognition.

Well done team, keep up the great work!
