Our April/May issue took a look at current compost issues, with horticulturalist Andy McIndoe examining the increasingly fast pace of the growing media industry, with current trends starting to conflict with environmental objectives.
We hear from Dutch construction company Thermoflor about the ongoing revolution that’s transforming the traditional garden centre into a destination for its customers. Thermoflor aims to make each project unique and tailor-made to their client’s needs, with previous works including Bents Garden and Home and Haskins centres.
Tim Jacob takes us through visual merchandising, with tips on how to catch your customers’ eye and use space to best effect; and HPW Architecture’s Gary Wilburn takes readers through previous and current garden centre design trends.
