2014 - Celebrating 25 years as a Garden Centre.
Please follow us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER to hear about exciting offers and events to coincide with our anniversary.
We were filmed by BBC1 for a programme about the weather and how it has affected business in 2012. Someone realised that garden centres would have been badly hit by first a drought (!) and then non stop rain for 3 months in Spring when it is traditionally the busiest time for us.
The good news is that 2 years are never the same so we have high expectations of a very nice Spring and Summer 2013.
It was shown on TV on Sunday 30th December 2012 at 5.30 pm on BBC1.
HERE IS A LINK TO THE PROGRAMME http://vimeo.com/56516656

TOTALLY LOCALLY - FOREST HILL
'Totally Locally' has been launched by Forest Hill's traders and aims to change people's shopping habits by getting them to commit to spending at least £5 per week in their local independents. There's no need to avoid the supermarket, but £5 spent in a local shop helps support local businesses, jobs and families. Find out more on their website totally-locally.co.uk/foresthill.
We were very happy to receive The Mayor of Lewisham's Business Award for Customer Service in October 2012. Thank you to all our great customers!
