Two sisters have set up a blooming new garden centre - and want to focus on teaching their customers their shared experience.

Lisa and Sarah Bolingbroke created The Watering Can in April. Back then it was a small stall at the end of Sarah's driveway, using products grown in her greenhouse.

But within months the sisters, who also run a cleaning service, have managed to land their own city centre garden centre, based at Cafe Brittania.

Lisa said: 'We are really passionate about encouraging people to get out in their garden.

'We have found a lot of people don't know about plants, especially younger generation, and we love to teach and give customers the confidence to give it a bash.'
