“Best Pub in Bloom”!

Smiths Arm, Lea (Preston)

The Smiths Arms in lea won the “Best Pub in Bloom” last year with hanging baskets from Newgate!


John (the landlord) came to us early last year wanting stunning but low maintenance hanging baskets/hay racks. We used a combination of trailing allumination apricot begonias and brachycombe in one set to get the lemon and powdery blue colours whilst in the others we used orange trailing begonias and deep blue trailing verbena.


The baskets flowered until late September and required no deadheading. The great thing about begonias is they will perform even in poor weather or shade.

Pop in to the nursery today and we can design a basket to suit your needs!
