    We’re working alongside The National Trust of Scotland to add vibrant colour to the newly re-modelled entrance to Culzean Castle, and the surrounding country park, on the Ayrshire coast.

    The Castle, and the 600-acre park that surrounds it, is The Trust’s second most popular property and attracts more than 200,000 visitors a year.

    P1 Contractors appointed Johnsons to the project to ensure the exacting specification was met or exceeded.

    This included the supply of 150no multi-stem betula, specimen azaleas, instant hedging, 1300no rootballed taxus, specimen taxus balls, ranging from 30cm to two-metre diameter, and ground cover shrubs.

    We’re working in conjunction with P1 Contractors. The total value of the contract is in excess of £70,000.

    We will be supplying more than 12,000 plants as part of the retail and leisure development on the former Arla Foods site in South Ruislip.

    We were selected ahead of other bids following a competitive tender process and will supply a range of shrubs and herbaceous plants as part of the project.

    The contract, agreed with landscape construction and maintenance company Whiting Landscape and landscape architects Macgregor Smith, is worth more than £30,000 and is our latest ‘contract grow’ project.

    The development will include a new 11-screen cinema, family restaurants, a new Asda supermarket and petrol filling station, and create more than 530 new jobs.

    Work commenced on site in October 2015 and it is anticipated that the facilities will be open to the public this summer.

    Johnson of Whixley senior amenity sales manager Tony Coles said: “It is a privilege for Johnsons to be making such a significant contribution to a project that will not only revitalise the site, but also create new jobs and opportunities for local residents.

    “Johnsons has a proven track record of meeting the demands of large, high-volume projects and delivering plants to a high-quality and at an attractive rate.

    “We’re proud to be working alongside Whiting Landscape on this project, and eager to see the wider project unfold in the months ahead.”
