Garden Centre blooming

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016


Service users and staff at Bromborough Pool Garden Centre, a social enterprise set up by Autism Together, have reported record sales in the last three months due to hard work, quality products and a team mentality where no issue was to much to handle.

The whole of the Social Enterprise Team at the Garden Centre we delighted with the increased footfall and popularity which has seen sales increase by 30% from May last year and especially the range of hanging baskets produced by the Woodworking Department where sales have nearly doubled.

The financial figures came as a welcome distraction after the garden centre had been the target of thieves last year. Ironically after the stories appeared in the media the community rallied behind the team at the social enterprise and helped the growth they have experienced.

Lex Freeman, Social Enterprise Manager, said “We are glad to see the positive work that we do here in our social enterprise department is being recognised by the local community.

We have worked hard to provide top quality flowers, plants and shrubs at competitive prices whilst continuing to provide an autism specific service for our service users. Hanging basket sales have sky rocketed from 200 in 2015 to a very impressive 350 this year, 2016.

As well as these increased sales we have been inundated for orders of our woodwork items and finding it difficult to keep up with demand, especially of our wooden benches and planters.”

Robin Bush, CEO Autism Together, said “We would like to thank everyone for their support of our social enterprise and the opportunity to really showcase the skills our service users possess.”
