HARTLEBURY: Forest Garden has recently donated a range of products to TV’s Diarmuid Gavin for use in a series of special garden makeovers for This Morning.

The garden makeovers stretched the length and breadth of the UK, taking in the Llwenhendy Children’s Centre in Llanelli, Wales; the Southwold Residential Home in Manchester, and the Triwergi School in Redruth, Cornwall.

John Gomersall, sales and marketing director at Forest Garden said: “The garden makeover projects created for This Morning are very special as they provide much needed relaxation and enjoyment for some worthwhile causes. It is for this reason that we are extremely honoured to be have been able to get involved.

“At Forest Garden we pride ourselves on creating products that offer eye catching but practical solutions for the garden, we therefore wanted to ensure that we provided the most useful and attractive pieces we could to each of the makeovers. We sincerely hope that everyone who visits the gardens will enjoy both our products and the gardens for many years to come.”

For the makeovers, Forest Garden supplied a selection of products including the Burford Pavillion, Polly playhouse, as well as a selection of garden trellis and landscaping sleepers.

As part of the makeover filming Mr Gavin, along with a television crew, attended Forest Garden’s head office in Hartlebury, Worcestershire. Here the team filmed the production of heavy duty trellis, which featured in the Llwenhendy Children’s Centre. Added to this, Forest Garden’s John Gomersall was interviewed to find out more about the production process as well as Forest Garden’s commitment to sourcing FSC timber for all of its extensive product portfolio.

Talking about Forest Garden, Mr Gavin said: “Forest Garden produce the most creative and innovative structural garden products which Diarmuid Gavin Designs are delighted to use.”
