Garden Re-Leaf 2018 registration is now open

Published: 19 December 2017 - Fiona Garcia
 

Following a fantastic Garden Re-Leaf Day this year, Greenfingers Charity has announced that 2018’s event will take place on Friday, March 16.

New events have been planned and the campaign promises to be even bigger next year, although organisers are remaining tight-lipped with details for now.  

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the Garden Re-Leaf Day Walk will take place once again and is now open for entries. Starting and finishing at Wyevale’s World's End Garden Centre, Buckinghamshire, there will once again be two routes available this year; a gentle 10-mile walk or a more challenging 20 mile route through the Chilterns. 

The popular Plantathon will return with Greenfingers Charity calling for garden retailers across the country to pot up as many plants as possible within a 12 hour time frame. Sponsored to plant from dawn to dusk, many garden centre teams have had brilliant fun with this challenge, going on to upsell their pots with a donation from each going to the charity.

If walking or hosting a Plantathon aren’t for you, there are loads of other ways you can get involved. From holding a quiz night, virtual in-store challenge or making a donation from every cuppa sold in the café. However you choose to support Garden Re-Leaf Day, it really is a great FUN way to increase footfall and at the same time engage with customers, motivate your team and raise your profile both locally and in the garden industry press, what better way to start the gardening season!

Greenfingers  head of fundraising and communications Linda Petrons said: “In 2017, a staggering £100,000 was raised, and with your support, we are hoping 2018 will be even bigger. Whether you are a retailer, supplier or lover of all things gardening we encourage you to get involved with our Garden Re-Leaf Day events or organise your own event or promotions to raise vital funds to help make a difference to children and families who spend time in hospices.”

You can sign up to take part in Garden Re-Leaf day by visiting the Greenfingers Charity website www.greenfingerscharity.org.uk/gardenreleaf

What do you think?

Will houseplants boost sales of garden pest control?


Do you expect to see an increase in demand for garden pest control products as the huge trend for houseplants continues?
