The manager of a specialist plants centre in Shrewsbury has noticed a trend of customers buying potted specimen trees to enhance the gardens of homes they are trying to sell.

Tim Robinson, from Love Plants, based at caravan and motorhome dealership Salop Leisure’ headquarters at Emstrey, recently sold 10 potted trees to a customer who was looking to sell his home.
“He wanted to make the gardens look more attractive to enhance to the appeal of his house, which is a clever idea, as he can take the potted trees with him when he moves home,” he said. “Trees, shrubs and plants can be used to break up wall space and brighten up gardens.”
Mr Robinson and his team offer advice on garden design and the best plants for certain soil types, which is particularly useful for gardens on new property developments.
“We are happy to advise people moving into newly built homes about the best plants for their garden,” he said. “All they need to do is bring in a photo or plan of their garden space and we can also advise them about doing a simple soil test to find out what plants will grow in the conditions.
“With the high number of new build developments in and around Shrewsbury, I think this could be a very useful service to homeowners.”
