As a family business, Notcutts has a rich heritage and involvement in show gardens winning 50 gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show over the years and more recently a large Gold Medal at Sandringham Flower Show in 2016. Proud of these achievements Notcutts now brings this experience to their garden centres in order to inspire people to create their own garden, perfect for their own particular use. The Notcutts garden is a permanent display garden to be enjoyed all year round.
The garden celebrates Notcutts’ long history and heritage and has been designed to inspire tranquillity with a large water fountain and contemporary pergola. Installing the Notcutts Garden in the Garden Centre never takes more than three weeks to complete, depending on the hard landscaping required. The design and build of the Notcutts Garden is led by Notcutts’ Head of Visual Merchandising, Marco de Jongh, and Plant Buyer, Stuart Andrews.
Together with their Garden Centre colleagues they planted over 200 plants of 30 different varieties feature in each of the gardens. This includes the popular Peony Shirley Temple, Foxgloves, Festuca blue grass and Tasmanian tree ferns that travelled from Tasmania with their own plant passport. The tree ferns are from sustainable/managed forests and are around 50 years old. For instant impact and height specimen trees Betula Alba (common silver birch) and Betula Jacqumontii from Tuscany were planted, creating shade and shelter in the tranquil garden while Rhododendron and Azalea add a magnificent burst of colour as early as spring. The planting scheme ensures beauty and interest in every season.
