Johnsons of Whixley supply garden display for global coffee brand


Johnsons of Whixley is working in partnership with a promotional equipment specialist to deliver a UK pop-up brand activation for a world-renowned coffee brand.


Johnsons is supplying £7,000 worth of plants and materials, including ginkgo and bay trees, grasses, bamboo, shrubs, ferns, Ivy screens and ivy on canes, to a pop-up garden in St. Ann’s Square, Manchester.


The garden will promote the coffee brand, which operates cafes and sells its products in shops worldwide.


The project is being delivered in conjunction with DHB Group, who provide a full range of bespoke, quality and mobile promotional equipment solutions to blue chip clients in the UK and throughout Europe.


The garden features hanging chairs and a decorative birdcage alongside the greenery to create ‘an oasis to pause and rest’.


The display will also feature an insight into the history of coffee and information on how people can support the brand’s charitable initiatives.


It is open to the public for 12 days and opened on Wednesday.


Johnsons of Whixley’s Ellie Richardson said: “For close to 100 years, Johnsons has established working relationships with companies large and small across many sectors in the UK and beyond, and we value each of them. However, it’s rare to be given an opportunity to work on a horticultural project for a true world-renowned brand.


“It was also great to get properly ‘hands on’ with the project - from quoting, to helping plant, to seeing the final finished garden in Manchester. It’s rare we have the opportunity to be involved in a project so comprehensively, from start to finish, but it’s a challenge the business has relished.”


Johnsons of Whixley is a family-run business based in the heart of Yorkshire and a trusted supplier of horticultural products to the commercial sector.
