Houseplants continue to be the dramatic welcome to Blue Diamond centres. 6. The Parlour at Springfields will be managed by the same team that run the successful Noshery in the garden centre. There will be a covered walkway between the garden centre an the new restaurant when it opens in the Autumn. 8. They very cleverly get everything you’d find in a bigger Blue Diamond centre into the small gardening area at Springfields.
