Giles on The One Show

On Tuesday we all enjoyed watching Giles Henschel, founder of Olives Et Al on The One Show explaining to Aldo Zilli about the rich heritage olives have in the UK. Giles featured as part of the piece on olives as they are enjoying a real renaissance in the UK and are actually being grown on British soil. Giles even showed Aldo how on the back of a 50 pence piece ‘dear old Britannia’ is actually holding an olive branch, meaning the arrival of olives in Britain actually pre-dates the old British favourite the potato!

The Gardens Group has been awarded the Garden Centre Association’s (GCA) Green City Town and Country Outstanding Commitment Award for the second year running. The Gardens Group is always looking at ways to work with the community, which was recognised with this award. In January this year the three garden centres collected a staggering 1,100 Christmas trees from across Somerset and Dorset to recycle into gardeners favourite – mulch! Next year perhaps they could look at helping the community by collecting not only Christmas Trees but bad Christmas Gifts as well!

We received a gift from our friends at mad river  this week, which the team took no time to sample even though it was only 11.30 am! We work with mad river on some exciting projects for clients including Dorset Cereals and Fudges and they do a fantastic job with all manner of things including website design and experiential activity. To say Happy New Year they sent us a bottle of their home made Moonshine (apple and cinnamon infused vodka!) which certainly gave Joanne, Briony and Abbie a little lift!
