Wow - thank you everyone. I hadn't realised there had been so many contributions (I was away for much of September and life has been hectic since I returned, so I hadn't been on here at all). Thee are really fantastic ideas across the board here, as well as a clear neiva tour of what does/doesn't float the boat of those truly into their gardening. I think at the entrance of my garden centre I'll need two boards: one that's says 'Newbies' and then lists how we have show gardens, instructions,eto etc for ideas. And one board that says 'experienced gardeners' and lists that we have rare/wide varieties of particular plants, ability to orr in specific plants etc. it's clear there's a distinct divide. And then there's the tea,cake and a day out people - so a big sign advertising the cafe for them!
