WMB01 Gardeners Scrub Wrapped


Staffordshire business owner Vicki Evans is bloomin’ delighted that her popular Walk Mill Botanics soap is being used by one of the UK’s leading garden designers at this year’s Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show.



TV presenter, author and well-known gardener Ann-Marie Powell has confirmed she and her team are using the Walk Mill Botanics gardener’s scrub soap as they prepare her official RHS Garden for Chelsea 2016 - a Garden for Health, Happiness and Horticulture which launches at The Chelsea Flower Show next week from 24 to 28 May.

The news comes hot on the heels of national media coverage in The Guardian’s weekend gardening supplement, which led to the company’s Gardener’s scrub soap temporarily selling out within 48 hours of appearing in the national title earlier this year.

Walk Mill Botanics’ range of soaps, room sprays, Himalayan bath salts, konjac sponges and beauty balms has also recently featured in Country Living, Psychologies, Prima Baby, Green Parent, Landscape and Staffordshire Life.

Vicki Evans of Walk Mill Botanics says: “I was absolutely thrilled to hear from Ann-Marie that she and her team are using the soap as they prepare for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. She says that she especially likes the recycled seeded packaging that is popular with our customers who often buy the soaps as gifts for friends and relatives who are keen gardeners.”

She adds: “We feel that Ann-Marie’s show garden at Chelsea and her theme of health and happiness is an ideal fit with the wellbeing ethos behind my product range. All our soaps come wrapped in hidden relaxation and reflection techniques and our room sprays, bath salts and beauty balms are bursting with aromatherapy ingredients selected for their relaxing, rejuvenating and calming properties.”

Walk Mill Botanics soaps are handmade using natural ingredients that are free from SLS and parabens. The range includes ingredients such as blackcurrant and honey, lime and cedarwood, marigold petal, rose and geranium and many more.
