Wilmslow in Bloom

Our lovely Wilmslow stores have been working hard to create a flower bed with edible plants for the ‘Wilmslow in Bloom’ competition and a scarecrow named Stanley for the ‘Wilmslow Scarecrow festival.’ I think Stanley looks adorable in his lovely Feather & Black stripy pyjamas and dungarees.
The flower bed is filled with edible plants for the ' Incredible Edible Wilmslow' theme and Teresa, the lovely store manager, chose plants which are all related to sleep. It is both relaxing and beautiful.
The sleep bed included:
Lots of Lavender - Lavender has a calming effect, improving sleep quality and promoting relaxation at bedtime.
Marjoram - The relaxing effect of marjoram means that it is good for those who suffer with insomnia and is also good to relieve stress.
Chamomile – as well as being a pretty daisy flower, chamomile is also used to help with sleep.
If you need any other sleep tips, pop in to our Wilmslow store or any of our other stores ; our staff can help with advice from natural remedies to help with sleep to helping you choose a new mattress.
Good Luck to the Wilmslow Store in the competition!
