Opening day is fast approaching and already customers have been turning up. The first 20 hanging baskets have been ordered with more on the way. Most of the perennials have been hardened off ready for sale alongside some of the tougher annuals. With a 150 varieties this year is going to be a riot of colour both inside and out. I cannot express how hard the whole team has worked to achieve this, in the years I’ve been Outreach3Way I have not known thegardens team to be so happy and work so hard. Well done guys.
We look forward to trying them all out on the website and on the till as they learn how to serve the public and handle money. Already a number of the 20 people we support in the gardens have put themselves forward for both till and customer service training. Others have opted for maintaining the plants to keep them at their best while others still want to learn how to make the hanging baskets.
It’s going to be a busy year with a whole new bunch of challenges as we progress. With patience we’ll get there. Why not come along and see for yourself, we look forward to seeing you.
The Gardens Team.
