Have you seen our new look Wellbeing Garden?

If you’ve been into the centre recently, you may have noticed that Katie Rushworth’s Wellbeing Garden has had a makeover.

Our Plant Buyer, Steve Smith, was pleased to welcome Katie back to Tong to refresh the garden that Katie and Steve’s team created in May. “The Wellbeing Garden has been transformed from a tranquil relaxation space to a perfect entertaining space that is packed with an abundance of hot colours and textured foliage.

“The garden has been refreshed with bold colours that complement the all year round planting and it looks amazing. Pockets of Kniphofia, Rudbeckia, Helenium and Echinacea show customers how easy it is to transform an existing border with a seasonal refresh.”

The plants have been specially selected by Katie as her VIPs (Very Important Plants) and are available to buy from the centre.

Katie, who works alongside Alan Titchmarsh on ITV’s ‘Love Your Garden’ and ‘Love Your Home and Garden’ is delighted with the new look garden: “I’ve swapped out the soft blues, pinks and lilacs for late summer hot colours and it looks awesome! I love a hot jazzy planting scheme!

“So, if you want a garden that will lift your spirits and put a spring in your step, then be sure to visit Tong for inspiration. It’s been so lovely seeing people taking pictures and enjoying the space.”
