Squires garden centre has pledged to donate more than 200,000 plants to public spaces after the success of a single campaign.
Squires in Stanmore stepped up its offer to beautify several areas across the South East. This is after it donated 19,000 tulip bulbs to Bernays Garden in Harrow.
The gift came through the “Love Where You Live” campaign. Squires donated 10 bulbs for each bag of bulbs bought by customers in September.
Squires team members and volunteers from Bernays Garden Community Group, planted the tulip bulbs on October 8.
Victoria Seco from Bernays Gardens Community Group said: “A very big thank you to Squires Garden Centre.
“We are so grateful for their huge donation of tulip bulbs and for their ongoing support. Thank you from us all.”
Sarah Squire added: “We’re overwhelmed by the response to our ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign. We are very grateful for the support our family business receives from local people.
“It’s fantastic to be able to give something back to the communities where we are. Autumn is the best time of year to plant spring flowering bulbs.
“‘Tulip tarda’ is the variety we have donated. It has clusters of beautiful yellow and white fragrant star-shaped flowers.
“It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit. I am sure that it will produce a spectacular display of colour come next springtime.”
