Our garden competition simply wouldn’t happen without the assistance of our wonderful headline sponsors Hadlow College and Coolings Garden Centre. Here you can find out a little about them and follow a link to their websites to find out more.
Please support them if you can.

The College’s main site and administrative headquarters is at Hadlow, a pretty village in the heart of the Kent countryside, near Tonbridge. Additional campuses are found in Kent at Canterbury and Medway and in South East London at Mottingham and Greenwich.
Coolings Garden Centre
Coolings has two centres, the Gardeners Garden Centre at Rushmore Hill, Knockholt and Coolings Green and Pleasant at Main Road, Knockholt. Coolings specialises in plants.
Not only do they grow more than 65 per cent of their own plants at their on-site nursery but they have more than three acres of display area full of the widest selection of plants available – one of the largest in the UK.
The majority of plants offered for sale in their plant area are grown on their own production nursery at the rear of our site. In addition, they use more than 50 other specialist nurseries from the UK and abroad to ensure their customers get the widest possible choice.
The Rushmore Hill centre also includes Arthur’s coffee shop where daily delights are created from local produce including a home-made selection of cakes and pastries baked each day.
At Coolings Green & Pleasant, under one roof you will find all the gifts you are looking for plus more besides. These include lots for children, a range of cards, design-led homeware, china and furniture and barbecue ranges.
Include a walk round their Nature Trail, a bite to eat in Blueberry Café for a lovely day out.
