Deelish Garden Centre turns 40 this year and to celebrate this milestone, and as a gesture of goodwill to customers and the community, the garden centre is giving away 4,000 native trees.
“We hope to encourage people to plant as many trees as possible in West Cork, creating native woodlands that in turn will encourage biodiversity and wildlife; help restore natural ecosystems, sequester carbon back from the atmosphere and make West Cork an even more beautiful place in which to live!” shares proprietor Noah Chase.
“My parents, Bill and Rain Chase, established Deelish Garden Centre back in 1984, making it the oldest garden centre in West Cork. We are very proud to have helped many gardeners over the last four decades, supplying a huge range of plants and trees, many of which today are part of West Cork’s gardens and woodlands.”
Over the coming year, Deelish has planned a range of events to celebrate four decades in business. For this first exciting giveaway event, the garden centre is offering anywhere from one up to 50 native trees per property to suit individual requirements and up to 300 native trees to local community projects and educational facilities.
“Even for the smallest garden or space, there is a way of participating in this event, so please don’t be daunted, come in and let’s discuss what we can do. No strings attached, just free trees!” says Noah.
To avail of this offer, just visit Deelish Garden Centre in Skibbereen and let Noah and the team know how many trees you’d like and your planting plans. There will be over 17 different native Irish varieties available to choose from so you are sure to find something suitable for your local conditions. The trees on offer will be given away on a ‘first come, first served’ basis and an Eircode must be supplied so that the planted trees can be mapped in order to see how the project is growing.
“We look forward to giving these trees away over the coming weeks and catching up with many old friends and customers, as well as meeting many new gardeners who are helping us to expand West Cork’s woodlands,” says Noah.
“Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2024 and remember, gardening doesn’t have to cost the Earth!”
