The 38-year-old keen gardener, from Inverkip was one of the first customers at the garden centre, near Gourock when Cardwell welcomed visitors for the first time this year.
She was there with Richard Jow, 42, stocking up for spending time making their garden grow.

“As well as planting flowers, we grow a lot of our own vegetables.”
There was a steady flow of visitors to the garden centre yesterday with people preparing the growing season, which has just started.
As well as selling plants, seeds and other gardening essentials, Cardwell is also offering a food carry-out service from their Patio Café.
