Jason Williams, General Manager of The Slug and Lettuce on Waterside in Sale, is putting his lockdown to good use and developing his new venture, The Blossom Garden at the venue. Jason is using his love of gardening to boost his own mental health, as well as that of his team and the Sale community, by planting a flower garden in his outside space at the bar.
Jason explained, “Throughout lockdown, I have found that gardening has really helped with my mental health and I wanted to share that. So, the idea was born! I have turned the outside area of my bar, Slug and Lettuce, into a beautiful cut flower garden, called The Blossom Garden. We hope to create a safe and beautiful space for people to enjoy as they begin to leave their homes more and more, and we ease out of lockdown.”
Jason is transforming the outside area of the bar, where customers would usually enjoy food and drinks, into a floral oasis. When lockdown ends and the site reopens, customers will still be able to sit and enjoy themselves in the comfort of the covered-barns and outdoor heaters. In the meantime, as the site is still closed, The Blossom Garden can be appreciated by anyone in the plaza.
“The beauty of The Blossom Garden is that even when we reopen, it will still be a really nice resting spot as you walk along the canal. I am also encouraging seed and plant swaps, it is my aim that these swaps will eventually happen every Sunday, at the Sale Makers Market – bringing people together to share their knowledge.” Jason added.
In the development of The Blossom Garden, Jason has also launched his own YouTube Channel –
Cloud Gardener UK, to reach out and help others with similar interests. Recent posts in his channel include a playlist documenting mental health and how he got into gardening.
