This year we are celebrating four decades of trading as a garden centre!
The first two decades in the Walled Garden of Hopetoun House and the last twenty years here at New Hopetoun Gardens.
Tansy the cat managed the transition but her role is now taken by Basil at 20 years old! Only six of us now worked in the Walled Garden – Dougal, Lesley, Jane, Graham, Tim and Katrina – though many of our dedicated team have worked hard with us for many years in the new location.
Of course we wouldn't be where we are today without the loyal support of our ever-growing band of customers (old & new) , and we do hope as many of you as possible can join us and help us celebrate as we mark our 40th Anniversary with a number of special events and talks.
As part of our 40th Anniversary Celebrations, we are holding number of special talks and events - We are sure you won't want to miss the fun, especially "Judging The Chelsea Flower Show at 7.30pm on Thursday 15th March.
This event is in support of Perennial (The Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Society) where Dougal & Lesley share some of the many behind the scenes secrets they have learned after 20 years of judging at the Chelsea Flower Show.
