JOHNSONS DESIGNER GARDEN COLLECTION
A range of Designer Garden Collections - a brand new 'border in a box' concept - is one of the highlights of Johnsons retail seed offer for the forthcoming 2014/15 season. It looks set to appeal both to seasoned flower gardeners and to those who welcome guidance on which varieties work well together to create imaginative gardens.
Eye-catchingly presented in a beautiful box with border designs by leading illustrator and printmaker Hannah McVicar, each of the Cottage Garden, Fragrant and Cut, and Wildlife-Attracting Designer Garden Collections includes 12 packets of carefully chosen annual and perennial flower seed varieties, plus an easy to follow seed sowing and planting plan to encourage the creation of beautiful borders. Cultural instructions inform gardeners there is enough seed in the packets of annuals to repeat sow in successive years.
The three collections each come in a compact counter-top display unit containing eight boxes. Each Designer Garden Collection has a recommended retail price of £9.99, making it an inexpensive gift with a high perceived value or a bargain for the purchaser's own use. "We believe this is the perfect gift for any gardener and represents great value for money", says the brand's Helen Clayton.
