A PLANT nursery welcomed more than 200 customers to say thank you for their continued support.

Hare Hatch Sheeplands celebrated the official opening of the recently approved garden shop on April 18.

Owner Rob Scott said: “This is our way of saying thank you to all those loyal customers who supported us during our planning difficulties.

"You wrote letters, signed petitions and generally made it clear that we are valued within the local community. You all played a very important part in our success for which we are very grateful.”

During the party guests were offered the chance to go on a guided tour, which included a look behind the scenes.

An impressive 120,000 geraniums were growing along with a full range of other plants.
