When keen gardener Peter Davidson met Griffin Glasshouses’ managing director, Linda Lane, at Hampton Court Flower Show in 2019 he was very impressed with the products but he waited nearly 2 years before ordering.
When his 3.6m x 8.1m Tarragon greenhouse arrived for his perennial plants he was so pleased that he immediately ordered another, smaller one for part of his his cacti and succulent collection.
His home in the West Dorset village of Maiden Newton has several acres of garden and woodland but when he arrived it was simply fields.
Peter explained: “We are developing the perennial garden and needed a suitable greenhouse to help us achieve our objectives. Linda’s explanation of the Tarragon greenhouse was ideal. I have now ordered a traditional free-standing greenhouse measuring 3m x 6m for the majority of my cacti and succulent plants – several hundred of them.”
The Tarragon glasshouse is one of the National Garden Scheme Collection that Griffin manufacture for the charity.
