Merryhatton has launched a free one-to-one advice service for plants and gardening supplies, the first of its kind in the area.

The new personal shopper service for plant advice has been devised to offer practical help and ideas to people struggling to know which plants will work in their garden.

Merryhatton owner, Helen MacDonald explains:

We’re always looking for ways we can make the services we provide for our customers even better. Although advice is always available in our plant area, we realised that for some customers more detailed and personalised help would make a big difference to them.

If you aren’t a seasoned gardener it can be difficult to know where to start or even which questions to ask. With our new personal shopper service, you can even bring in photos of your garden and talk to one of our team about any problem areas. We can then give you ideas and suggestions on which plants will be best suited to your location and type of garden.

We can even help with advice on everything from the best type of compost to use with your plants to the most effective types of weedkillers to keep pests at bay!

To use the service, simply book an appointment with one of the garden centre’s outdoor plant team at Merryhatton or call 01620 880278.
