"We can use less water and keep the plants in better condition"

Flood benches installed at Squire's Garden Center

Squire’s Garden Centres in Milford and Badshot Lea both have new plant areas.

Plants are now displayed in wooden ‘flood benches’, which not only look great, but are environmentally friendly too. Each bench contains a tray that captures water, either from a hose or rainfall. This means that the plants absorb water at their roots, giving healthier and happier plants. Because most of the benches are raised off the ground, it is easier on the knees too, as less bending down is required.

Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s commented, “We are very pleased with our new plant areas at Squire’s in Milford and Badshot Lea. Our new signage makes it easier for customers to navigate and see all the gorgeous plants, and the new flood benches mean that we can use less water and keep the plants in even better condition. Do come and have a look and discover all the autumn plants.”

Both garden centers also have great children’s play areas, with climbing structures, slides, and nature boards to help children identify different birds and trees that they might spot in the area.
