Garden center elsewhere… In April

Editorials, Uncategorized

Garden center elsewhere, we take the same ones and start again! Like every month, here is an overview of the Facebook publications of our colleagues around the world, just to see the differences… or not!

If you also subscribe to a nice page from a garden center, don’t hesitate to pass me the link, it’s quite nice to come across this information.

For French garden centers, you can take a look at the Linkedin accounts of “Roland Motte” or “Guide des Consommateurs Jardin”. As often as possible, we visit garden centers in our beautiful regions of France and we share the photos. If this gives you any ideas…

In the meantime, here’s a little tour of the world at the beginning of April… Enjoy your visit!
