Potty for The Potting Shed

Congratulations this week go to the team at Olives Et Al’s Potting Shed deli cafe. The Potting Shed was voted the Best Garden Centre Food Hall, in an area stretching from Dover to Dorchester. The deli is based in Poundbury Gardens, which is a member of The Gardens Group, meaning it was a double win for two of our clients.

Roger Crookes, Garden Centre Association judge said “It was a great example of how small businesses can get things exactly right.” We say – it’s a bloomin lovely place to go for a bowl of perfect olives, one of Dan’s amazing deli platters, or a good natter! Well done guys.

On the subject of delis, Nickie has been working on the launch of Thyme & Tides owned by Iain and Sally Hemming, who ran the successful West Street Deli in Wilton, Salisbury. There is a fish counter which focuses on fresh, ethical and sustainable fish, sourced by fishmonger Ashley Major, together with a deli counter chosen to reflect local produce and world foods, sourced with equal passion and expertise.  As well as some great local and regional coverage, the Telegraph also covered the launch. Here is a snippet on telegraph.co.uk

The ‘all about you’ website recently produced its top 10 organic food countdown – it was less Top of the Pops and more Top of the Crops! Coming in, new at number 10 is Godminster Vintage, Organic Cucumber Vodka and straight in at number 3, its Rod and Ben’s Organic, Seasonal Soups – In the words of Smashy and Nicey, we think they’re both poptastic!
