Diarmuid Gavin visits Strikes Garden Centres
Fresh from winning gold at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Diarmuid Gavin has been the special guest of Strikes Garden Centres.
Diarmuid’s first visit was to Strikes Garden Centre at Northallerton on Saturday 4th June, following the completion of the centres redevelopment programme. This spring has seen the centre developed to offer a new Topiary Coffee Shop and Restaurant, new Craft Shop, Clothing Shop and covered outdoor plant area.
On Saturday 11th June, Diarmuid called in at Byrkley Garden Centre near Rangemore, Strikes’ latest acquisition, to join in their 25th Anniversary celebrations. Byrkley has greeted the Midlands gardening community since 1986; set in a Victorian walled kitchen garden, formerly part of the country mansion, Byrkley Lodge, this award winning garden centre has now become one of the largest and most well respected in the country.
Customers at both centres were delighted to see Diarmuid and while there he also planted a commemorative tree and conducted a question and answer session for local interested gardeners.
