Recently, a few of the marketing team ventured over to the Green Isle for important business activity, but I couldn’t help but spot a handful of unique planters scattered around.

As most of you know, Primrose is the largest supplier of garden planters, so my spidey senses were tingling, and the creativity and innovation inside me was going off.

Which is your favourite?

Last weekend the bravest employees at Primrose joined together to take on the Tough Mudder Half; our team consisted of employees from: Customer Services, Accounts, Marketing, Buying, IT and even our CEO!

Tough Mudder requires teams to work together to make sure everyone gets across the obstacles, and this was definitely the case with the ‘Pyramid Scheme’ obstacle. Our CEO and Head of Finance took one for the team and went at the bottom of the wall to help hoist everyone else up the pyramid to the top where more members pulled us up to safety. This obstacle would have been impossible to defeat on your own, but luckily the Primrose team found a way to get everyone over together.

We then all proceeded to get extremely muddy during the ‘Mud Mile’ obstacle which involves you wrestling through a mud pit and ensuring no one comes out clean!

To finish off, the team worked together to tackle ‘Everest 2.0’ in which you have to run as fast as you can up a curved wall hoping someone can catch you at the top. This was a particularly difficult challenge, but nevertheless there was always someone at the top to give you a hand up.

We had a fantastic time at this event and there was a great feeling of success when we crossed the finish line together, knowing we had done it all as a team. It was a great opportunity to get to know our colleagues better and also raise some money for the fantastic organisation Help for Heroes. Thank you to all of those that donated, at the time of writing this we’ve made £230 but if you would like to donate you can head to our Just Giving page, every donation makes a difference.

Now to start the training for next year…

Garden Screening, George, New Products, News, Primrose.co.uk

As one of the UK’s leading garden screening specialists, we’re always looking for ways to innovate with new types of decorative screens. This week we’re launching a new range of artificial screening: reed and willow.

Artificial reed screening

These artificial reed rolls recreate the sleek, modern look of natural reed screening but with the durability and fade-resistance of plastic.

If your garden’s in need of a quick refresh then this kind of screening is perfect. It’s versatile – simply attach to an existing fence for decoration or added privacy. Installation is easy and from then on the artificial screening is very low maintenance.

Artificial willow screening

We offer artificial willow screening in two different kinds – round canes and oval canes.

These both have the same natural feel as real willow – but without the maintenance. They’re quick to install, UV protected and can be wiped clean as required.

We’re very exciting to be bringing these new types of screening to the market and hope you like them as much as we do!

Take a look at the complete range of artificial screening – including bamboo and hedging.

Learn how to install garden screening – it’s a lot easier to fit than you might think.

George’s idea of the perfect time in the garden is a long afternoon sitting in the shade with a good book. A cool breeze, peace and quiet… But of course, he’s usually disturbed by his energetic wire fox terrier, Poppy!

He writes about his misadventures in repotting plants and new discoveries about cat repellers.
