With an unrivalled range of plants on offer all year round, The Gardens Group has everything required to enjoy the garden, whatever the weather, including three award winning restaurants. A team of knowledgeable plants-men and women are always ready to share their expertise, and the multi-award-winning Christmas displays draw people in from the local area and beyond.
Working with local groups, schools, charities and businesses is considered part of daily life at The Gardens Group, and is something that everyone that works there has always taken great pleasure in doing. Mike and Louise have a longstanding and continuous commitment to the local community and over the years have really enjoyed working with many groups, small and large, to raise awareness of their fantastic projects and initiatives, while promoting and inspiring interest in gardening along the way.
Whether it’s collaborating with Dorset Wildlife Trust on the Wildlife Friendly Gardening Awards or hosting fundraising events for local charities and not for profit organisations, The Gardens Group believes that local businesses should support each other to keep communities vibrant and that working in partnership with all types of community groups helps to forge stronger, healthier relationships.
There are a lot of outstanding young individuals in the area, and The Gardens Group is proud to sponsor The Outstanding Young Achiever Award, which seeks to recognise one such person, who has gone far beyond what could ever be expected of them. This award represents the real impact that one young individual can make upon others and how those many acts of kindness and generosity ripple across their community.
