Thompson & Morgan has teamed up with one of Suffolk's favourite visitor attractions, Jimmy's Farm, to open its brand new garden showcasing over 1000 containers all summer long until early September 2016.
If you are planning to visit, then Jimmy's Farm is able to cope with thousands of visitors, plus there's a fantastic restaurant where you can stop by for coffee and cake or even a delicious lunch. What’s more, it's open daily to the public so you can explore the Thompson & Morgan garden at your leisure. Entrance to the garden at Jimmy's Farm is free and the T&M garden will be open from 1st July right though to September.
If you ever visited one of Thompson & Morgan's Open Weekend's you know you'll be in for a treat at the new garden. Sadly due to the large number of visitors the event attracted, it could no longer be held at the Thompson & Morgan site. Thompson & Morgan are excited to have teamed up with Jimmy's Farm to be able to once again open its trial gardens to its customers and gardening public.
Over a thousand containers (Tower Pots™, Flower Pouches™, Patio Pots and Easy Fill Hanging Baskets ) and several large trial beds will show off customer favourites, key introductions for 2017 and experimental varieties being trialled for garden performance. Visitors will be asked to highlight their favourite varieties and will have the chance to win prizes for sending in selfie shots of themselves with the plant that caught their eye the most.
The garden adds an injection of vibrant colour to a host of other free attractions at the farm including rare breed animals, top class restaurant and butchery, as well as craft and gift stores. Farm owner Jimmy Doherty said: “The Thompson & Morgan garden just cannot be missed... literally! Our latest attraction has added a generous dose of colour to the farm, and allows us to offer gardeners a sneak preview of some incredible new plants for gardens. Marvel at the wall of colour too, clothed in Thompson & Morgan’s innovative Flower Pouches™, showing that fences don’t have to stay dull and brown! Visit as soon as you can for a day of inspiration and, of course, the opportunity to take some great selfies!”
"We've been building a brand new garden at Jimmy's Farm this spring which will showcase the best of the best of our varieties this summer. Customers can expect to see our customer favourite varieties along with brand new products that we are trialling for future release." - Michael Perry, New Product Development Manager, Thompson & Morgan
