Thrive gardeners visit Notcutts Oxford and create a haven for wildlife

A group of our client gardeners from Thrive in Berkshire had a brilliant time at Notcutts Garden Centre near Oxford recently.

Notcutts have supported Thrive for more than a year now, funding a bursary to train people to become horticultural therapists and more recently donating the proceeds from their evening talks on flower arranging.

Their next big fundraiser for Thrive is a wonderful evening on Thursday November 2 where Thrive garden ambassador David Domoney will spill the beans on what it’s like to garden on TV, plus behind the scenes at Chelsea in his talk, ‘Confessions of a TV Gardener’. Tickets are available here: https://notcutts.digitickets.co.uk/tickets?branches.branchID=543

As well as hosting the talks, Notcutts Oxford really wanted to get to know some of our client gardeners and invited us along to spend the day at the centre.

Sam Mallett, outdoor manager at Notcutts Oxford, arranged for the team from Thrive to create their very own wildlife garden area which can be admired by everyone who visits the popular garden centre in Nuneham Courtenay.

Vicki, one of the horticultural therapists at Thrive who went along with the gardeners said: “We couldn’t have been made more welcome, it was just lovely.

“Sam had created some tasks for us to do, potting on plants in order to create a little wildlife garden. She encouraged everyone to think about what would be good to include to encourage wildlife and we were invited to look around the garden centre to see what we could find ourselves.

“There was a table all set up for us, a welcome sign when we arrived and refreshments. It couldn’t have been a better day and wonderfully inclusive for all the gardeners.”

Jonathan Tew, centre manager at Notcutts Oxford, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome some of the client gardeners from Thrive to the centre. Everyone had a great day and we’ve received lots of positive comments on our new wildlife area.”
