Garden Centre Manager (holding)
Located in the village of Shenstone near the ancient cathedral city of Lichfield, Shenstone Garden Centre lies literally just off the M6 Toll on the A5127. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, it began life as a family owned centre famed for its home-grown bedding plants as well as its spectacular Christmas displays.
Now run by a team of green-fingered horticultural enthusiasts, the centre has a far-reaching reputation for the quality of its growing stock and the vast array of gardening products it sells. Friendly and knowledgeable, the staff like nothing more than to share their expertise with amateur and experienced gardeners alike and take great delight in designing miniature show gardens to inspire customers with new ideas.
Links with the community are strong, and the local school now has a sensory 'grow your own' garden to inspire the gardeners of the future. Whilst plants and horticultural products lie at the heart of the business, customers also love the excellent restaurant, especially Del's irresistible home-made cakes! A variety of concessions sell clothing, jacuzzis, travel goods, conservatories and more, but perhaps one of the centre's main attractions is Paws, the resident cat, who is nothing short of a local celebrity!
