The Gardens Group has enhanced its environmental credentials once again this month, by switching to eco-friendly wrapping at all three of its garden centres. The newly introduced gift wrap includes natural, plant-based raffia, fully biodegradable bio-plastic film and pH neutral tissue papers, which are made from recycled paper and soy-based inks.
Kyla Foster-Shaw, houseplants manager at Castle Gardens in Sherborne, explains: “Looking after the environment is at the heart of what we do at The Gardens Group, so it is brilliant to make this change at our gift-wrapping stations and to be able to give our customers confidence that their gifts are environmentally friendly. The new materials, which come in a vibrant array of colours, complement the plants beautifully and are going down very well at the centre.”
Complimentary gift wrapping with any purchase is offered at Brimsmore Gardens in Yeovil, Castle Gardens in Sherborne and Poundbury Gardens in Dorchester. Opening hours for all garden centres are Monday to Saturday, 9am-6pm and Sunday, 10am-4.30pm (tills open at 10.30am).
