Johnsons has provided £100k worth of plants for a luxury holiday park development by Darwin Escapes, at the new self-catering retreat which is due to open on the Blenheim Palace Estate during summer 2023.

The challenge 

We were chosen as the primary supplier of plants for the project, which will see a collection of one, two and three-bedroom lodges constructed in the grounds of the historic Blenheim Palace Estate. The retreat will be the first venue of its kind on the grounds of a historic British palace.

The Solution 

With a supply worth £100,000, Johnsons Nurseries has provided a diverse range of plants to enhance the outdoor areas of the Lodge Retreat, which is a blend of contemporary and traditional design in keeping with the Palace and its grounds. From Lavender, Euonymus and Hebe shrubs to vibrant Perennial plants including Rudbeckia, Geraniums, Iris and Salvia, the selection encompasses a rich variety of species, each carefully chosen to create a harmonious and captivating ambience.


The Result 

The plants are now in situ and are enhancing Darwin’s newest luxury lodge retreat.

Johnsons has a long-standing relationship with Darwin Escapes and has previously supplied plants for several of its notable projects, including Sandymouth, Woodside Beach, Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat, Canterbury Fields, Stratford Armouries, Norfolk Woods, and The Springs.

Lindsey Esse, Managing Director of Darwin Escapes, added: “ Johnsons has once again supplied us with a beautiful range of plants which perfectly enhance the landscape of our two newest luxury lodge retreats”.
