Scotts of Thrapston is delighted to welcome three new agents which will put the spotlight on its new range of hardwood summerhouses and highlight how they can improve outdoor living.
Straight Mile Nursery, in Essex, Cousins Conservatories and Garden Rooms, in West Sussex, and Bosworth’s Garden Centre (Elton Walled Garden) in Cambridgeshire, all now sell the Scotts’ ethically-sourced hardwood summerhouse range.
Straight Mile Nursery, in Ongar Road, Brentwood, is a family-run business established in 1985, which provides a base for Garden Design and Landscape.
Spokesman David Sisley FSGD said: “We are delighted to link up with a fellow family business. The quality of the Scotts’ summerhouses shines through and provides a further extension of our garden design capabilities.”
The nursery will showcase the Baltimore on a rotating base, the 2.2m Newhaven Corner Summerhouse and the 3.4m Sun Ray Garden Room.
Another family business, Cousins Conservatories and Garden Rooms, will also feature summerhouses at its centre in Hillier Garden Centre, Brighton Road, Horsham. Cousins, which was founded in 1992, by Gavin Philps and Jackie Fearn, has linked up with Scotts of Thrapston previously, and decided to reignite their partnership as customers are demanding high-quality summerhouses. Cousins will display both the Newhaven and Burghley designs.
The founders’ son Sean Fearn said: “We are thrilled to be an agent once again for Scotts of Thrapston as we see them as manufacturers of high-end products which will make a great addition to our show site. We find that certain features of a Scotts summerhouse really resonate with our customers, particularly the rotating base and the glass fibre roof, which is a different finish to the normal summerhouse. We are looking forward to a great partnership.”
Bosworth’s Garden Centre, an independent, family-owned business which started in 1959, opened a site in Elton in 2018, where the Scotts summerhouses will be displayed. The garden centre lies within the grounds of Elton Hall on the Cambridgeshire/Northamptonshire border near Peterborough.
Sam Bosworth said: “Scotts of Thrapston is renowned for its quintessentially English summerhouses and its designs are a perfect addition to our Elton site. These are exciting times for us.”
Managing Director James Scott said: “Welcoming three new agents is wonderful for the business and we are looking forward to long and successful partnerships. The new hardwood summerhouse range will offer great benefits to buyers as the wood, Red Grandis, has great durability, is fungi and insect resistant and easy to maintain, more dimensionally stable and free of knots. Customers are increasingly demanding sustainable materials with high life expectancy and our new hardwood summerhouses will meet these demands.”
