EXCITEMENT is growing at Cardwell Garden Centre as the team prepares for its reopening on April 5.

Staff will be welcoming customers with a new range of plants, gardening essentials and decorative stoneware.

The team has also created an outdoor living display - with garden furniture, chimeneas and fire pits - inside the entrance.

Cardwell’s retail general manager, Paul Carmichael, said the team has been working hard to make sure everything is 'spick and span' for the restart.

He added: "We can’t wait to welcome back customers old and new.

"We appreciate how important gardening is for physical and mental wellbeing and our reopening comes just in time for the start of the garden growing season."
