Wisbech St Mary based Delamore Garden Plants outlet has donated £1,000 worth of plants to a DIY SOS Children in Need special.

Work began this week on a hugely ambitious project to rebuild the Spinney Centre in Peterborough, which will be shown on a special Children In Need feature on BBC TV later this year.

The show’s Nick Knowles, and the producers of DIY SOS have been calling all local tradesmen and companies within the Fens, requesting their help and support to achieve their aim in rebuilding a new home for the Peterborough based group, Little Miracles, which runs sessions for disabled children within the area.

Chris Beardshaw, a leading British landscaper and Chelsea Gold Medallist has been charged with designing an award-winning garden for the new Spinney Centre, including themed beds and borders to help inspire the learners.

To assist Chris and the DIY SOS team in their ambitions, Delamore Garden Plants Outlet were happy to donate over £1000 worth of plants to the cause.

Plants donated include Choisya, Herbs, Hibiscus trees, Agapanthus, Geranium Rozanne, Cordylines plus much, much more.

Clare Smith, Outlet Manager said: “I am delighted that we’ve been able to support this amazing project, and I really hope the plants we’ve donated will help inspire the children who will use the new centre, through exploring sensory features of the garden including sight, sound and smell. I know the plants we’ve donated have all been specifically chosen for their sensory elements by Chris Beardshaw and the landscapers of the show”.
