A Patch of History, Lovingly Revived

Cranborne Garden Centre, next to historic Cranborne Manor in the heart of Cranborne Chase, re-opened under new ownership in late 2014 with a spectacular selection of plants, gifts and accessories for the keen gardener and present inspirations for friends and family. The new owners and their team have been working hard to restore the Garden Centre to its former glory, embarking on some exciting changes and additions inside and out.


In The Bag PR are delighted to be on board helping to revive this historic and iconic brand, promoting the Garden Centre to new visitors throughout Dorset and beyond with a combination of PR, Social Media and Event services. We project-managed the resoundingly successful official launch of the Centre over the first weekend in May 2015, where the new owners shared their plans for the future with the public.






The official launch – project managed by In The Bag PR – took place over the Bank Holiday weekend, 2nd– 4th May, where the new owners revealed their exciting plans for the Garden Centre in the months and years to come. The team has been overwhelmed by support from the local community and look forward to what the future brings.

Claire Whitehead, co-owner of Cranborne Garden Centre Ltd and Cranborne resident, comments:

“I am extremely proud of what we have achieved over the last four months and the Garden Centre is now well on ite way to being restored to its former glory. But this is just the start! We are very excited by all our future plans and now look forward to bringing them to fruition.


We have built a fantastic, dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff and we are able to offer a very personal service, with plenty of specialist advice for customers. We are lucky to be set in such a beautiful walled garden, which provides the perfect setting for the events we have planned. Evenings are magical here, so it is the perfect place to enjoy an evening meal in the summer.”
