The Royal Parks launches new garden retail site
Recreate the magic of London's eight Royal Parks in your own back garden
The Royal Parks, in association with leading gardening website Crocus, has launched a new website which will give gardening enthusiasts the opportunity to recreate some of the magic of London's eight Royal Parks in their own back garden.
The site will offer fresh inspiration and advice from The Royal Parks expert team of horticulturists, as well as the opportunity to buy plants and bulbs as seen in London's eight Royal Parks, which boast some of the world's most beautiful green spaces, including the Memorial Gardens near Buckingham Palace, the ornamental gardens of the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park, and the formal rose beds of Queen Mary's Gardens in Regent's Park. In addition, 15 per cent of every purchase made through the website, will go towards supporting the Parks, for the enjoyment of future generations.
Crocus is the UK's biggest gardening website, with over 4,000 lines available. The company has grown plants for the show gardens at the Chelsea flower show every year since the company's launch in 2000, winning 11 gold medals in the past nine years for gardens that it has built and grown the plants for.
Rob Dowling, Park Manager of Hyde Park said:
"London's Royal Parks are famous the world over for the beauty of their planting. With this website, we wanted to offer park visitors a chance to bring some of the magic of the Royal Parks to their own back garden. What's more, 15 per cent of every purchase will go towards supporting the Parks, which are enjoyed by over 37 million people every year."
