W6 Garden Centre and Café: How Does Your Garden Grow?

Diogo, Louise and Nick

Autumn is the perfect time to make changes in the garden. W6 Garden Centre’s expert teams will help you transform, cut back and care for your urban green space…

‘A lady rang the office and arranged for me to go along and quote on works at her new house,’ recalls Nick Dentes, Urban Gardens Manager at W6 Garden Centre. ‘The first thing I noticed was that everything was absolutely bone dry – it was during the July heatwave – and, no help at all, the hose only reached halfway down the plot, which was massive.

‘So I said, “just give me 20 minutes and I’ll nip back to the Centre for an extra hose attachment and we’ll give the plants a really good water while we discuss what you have in mind.” Of course, having done that, a few hours later it started to pour with rain – but we got the job!’

Nick’s anecdote epitomises W6’s philosophy. ‘We’re passionate about what we do and nothing is too much trouble,’ says Louise Alhadeff, the Garden Centre Director ‘Whether clients are dealing with Nick and his colleagues at their homes or commercial premises or coming here to choose plants and eat at the café, they’ll meet friendly, knowledgeable staff. We want to make our customers happy – that’s what business should be about.’

Nick has managed two full-time Urban Gardens teams, which are led by Diogo and Will, for the last four years – it’s likely you’ll have seen the distinctively branded vans out and about in the area – and they work hand-in-hand with everyone at the Garden Centre.

‘First and foremost, we’re experienced gardeners and we love plants,’ smiles Nick. ‘We like to build personal, long-term relationships with people. With us, it’s never a case of put the plants in and then disappear; we like to be around to look after the gardens and offer ongoing care and advice. That’s why there’s a two-year guarantee on hardy plants and so much of our business comes from word-of-mouth recommendation.’

At this time of year much of Nick’s work is focused on adding autumn colour, putting gardens to bed for the winter season and ensuring that they will spring into life next year. ‘Now is the ideal time to revamp, revive and clear your urban space, whether it’s a garden, roof terrace, patio or balcony,’ he explains.

‘We can devise a whole new planting plan, put in bulbs – that’s always popular around now – and breathe life into borders, install irrigation systems, lay turf, prune shrubs and cut back hedges. We use the same outstanding plant stock and stylish range of troughs, pots and planters that you’ll find at the Garden Centre and nothing is done blind – we give a free, no obligation quotation.’

While observing all Covid-19 safety guidelines, W6 is now fully open again, with The Green Room, its wonderful indoor jungle devoted to houseplants and their accessories, and the award-winning café as popular as ever. Meanwhile, Nick and his team are working throughout West London, establishing an essential link between the Garden Centre and its customers. ’They are integral to the W6 business,’ says Louise. ‘By providing a trustworthy, professional service, they represent us and reflect our values.’
