Frequently Asked Questions

Environmental Policy

Whitehall Garden Centre as one of the largest leading garden centres in the UK should be at the forefront of green issues in both the way in which it operates, in the products it supplies to it's customers and the ethos in which the business is run.
We have identified three areas where we as a business can make a contribution to the environment and our surrounding area, this is our small contribution to making the world a better place.

 

5 Green Leaves


Recycling

Recycling is a way of life at Whitehall and we encourage our customers to do the same. With a compost bin you can increase your recycling potential.


Saving Water

We endeavour to limit the amount of water we consume as a business and offer a range of products for you to save water and limit your useage.


Composting

By recycling your fruit & vegetable peelings, grass cuttings and the rest of your garden waste you can produce well-rotten garden compost, which can be used as a soil improver toenhance plant growth great on a vegetable patch.


Water Butts

Water Butts are an essentail for your garden.
Almost 10,000 average litres of rainwater falls on our house roofs each year so by collecting it in a water butt, you have a ready source of water that can help keep your garden looking lush and green.

A water butt can be connected to a downpipe so that it collects rainwater from your gutters. If you are using a downpipe, you will also need an overflow pipe or a rain diverter to redirect water into the butt. Once it’s full, water flows down the drainpipe.
A gutter filter will also keep out unwanted debris.


Health & Wellbeing

We offer many different products that benefit your health, encourage wildlife and generally make the environment we live in a better place.


FSC Policy

Whitehall Garden Centre has a policy of sourcing wood based
products from suppliers who ensure the timber used is accredited to FSC standards (Forest Stewardship Council) which ensures for
every tree that is cut down one is planted.
Where available the FSC logo will be displayed along with their certification number.



Peat Policy

Whitehall Garden Centre shares public concern in reducing peat use to minimise the effects of global peat extraction on peat bog habitats. Many viable peat alternatives exist which are either completely peat-free or of reduced peat content.
Our suppliers have improved labelling and information on their packaging, enabling our customers to make informed decisions about peat alternatives when purchasing growing medium.
Our commitment is to:
Provide trialled and tested viable peat alternatives
Sell growing medium products supplied by reputable and responsible companies
Ensure information is available so that customers can make informed decisions when purchasing growing medium products.
Stock a range of  high quality growing medium that is fit for every gardening  purpose and meets government guidelines.
Further information may be obtained from the Forest Stewardship Councilvia their web site www.fsc-uk.org.Building long term relationships
We support our customers, staff and community wherever possible.
Local Charities, Trees for Schools, Raffle Prizes, Plants and Seeds for School projects.
Championing Local & British Produce
We use local and British suppliers wherever possible. We beleive in responsible sourcing and treating our suppliers fairly
