Popular quality plants centre, Love Plants, will be returning to Shrewsbury Flower Show this year with a shop and special show garden entry.
Love Plants, which is owned by and based at caravan and motorhome dealership Salop Leisure’s Emstrey headquarters, will be joining forces with its parent company on their stand at the show, near the bandstand, on August 11 and 12.
The specialist plants centre, which celebrated its 10th birthday earlier this year, will have a series of special offers for people attending the show.
Love Plants will also be supplying the plants for Tom Pountney, head groundsman at Salop Leisure’s Love2Stay touring park and glamping resort, to take on the challenge of creating an eye-catching show garden.
The show garden will feature in the Quarry marquee near to the entrance of the event. Going for gold, Tom’s entry will incorporate a glamping shepherds hut from Salop Innovations, a new division of Salop Leisure.
In addition to being a great garden feature, the shepherds hut will highlight the possibilities for landowners to diversify into the glamping market.
“As one of the largest quality plant centres in the area, it is important to be supporting Shrewsbury Flower Show which has run for more than 100 years and is one of the top events of its type in the UK,” said Tim Robinson, Love Plants manager.
“We are really looking forward to returning to the show for the first time since the pandemic and can’t wait to meet new and existing customers.”
Tom Pountney, who opens his home garden to the public to support the National Garden Scheme and raise money for other charities, said: “It will be a great challenge to create a show garden featuring a shepherds hunt from Salop Innovations and plants from Love Plants.
“I love a challenge and they don’t come much bigger than entering Shrewsbury Flower Show. I shall be using my years of experience of designing and developing my own garden, which is my great passion.”
