Garden centers elsewhere… In June

With this stroll on social networks and on Facebook in particular, we have a small window on the communications of our colleagues. There are many garden centers on this network and there is no shortage of inspiration.

Some are a little more dynamic, so you have to look for different destinations each month. And you know what, I love it! By selecting the 5 monthly accounts, you need to see around fifteen of them. There’s nothing like it to keep up to date with the latest news about garden centers around the world!


Springvale Garden Center

This garden center is located at 18 Devon Road, Springvale, Whanganui, New Zealand.

The town of Springvale has 3,500 inhabitants with an average age of 38 years!

We are here by the Tasman Sea.

The Carter family has owned the Garden Center since its inception in 1991.
