We’re delighted to announce that Haskins Garden Centres has appointed us to develop its public relations strategy and strengthen its social media activity as it embarks on an exciting period of growth.

Haskins operates four of the largest destination garden centres in the South of England with locations in Ferndown in Dorset, West End in Southampton, Roundstone and Snowhill in West Sussex and has ambitious plans to expand further over the next few years.

We will support the centres to increase media awareness on a regional scale, to include traditional print and broadcast media as well as digital, offering stories and product placement. We have created a Twitter account for Haskins and will be developing this presence in line with the company’s broader marketing strategy and existing social media channels.

If you haven’t visited your local Haskins recently, make sure you take the family to experience the winter wonderland in all its glory. You can participate in the #HaskinSelfie #ElfieSelfie competition on social media – take a selfie with an elf (10 to find in each store) and share your photo on Instagram with #HaskinSelfie to be in with the chance of winning a gift voucher.

Along with festive food and goodwill, a dressed tree is an essential feature of Christmas. A little care and attention will help the longevity of your tree. Haskins has three simple tips to help look after your tree:

1. Choose for the space you have
2. Store the tree well
3. Make the tree last
