Ellie’s Hill Foot Garden Centre in Ulverston is open for business!

Formerly known as Hill Foot Garden Centre, the Ulverston staple is under new management… and the bosses bark is worse than her bite, literally.

Ellie is a Miniature Labradoodle and the new big shot at Hill Foot Garden Centre. Owner Beth, named the business venture after her pooch in a show of human/canine love.

Dogs really are man’s best friend and Ellie follows Beth everywhere. Though Ellie is clearly in charge with her big, brown eyes and unignorable adorableness, she leaves all the planning to Beth, who’s been revitalising and refurbishing the centre since she took it over in February.

This Christmas Beth is planning a blowout with Xmas trees and even reindeers. The plans for an on-site Café are underway and the garden centre is almost unrecognisable. What was once a labyrinth of plants that you could lose your children in for a few hours, is now perfectly organised and expanded. Don’t fret though, the old favourites are there with the pond, wishing well and fish pond – which will also be getting a new leash on life.

In a few short months, Beth and her team have made the centre as lovely as its namesake, and Ellie is more than happy to spend all day lounging between the flowers and welcoming customers in her business. Ellie has even insisted owner Beth expand into pet supplies, if not only to keep her thoroughly nourished.

Between the wonderful service of the human employees and Ellie’s charm, Ellie’s Hill Foot Garden Centre is bound to become a classic business within the community. And for the social-media-savvy gardeners – you can snap a picture of the lovely Ellie and pop it online with the hashtag #foundellie

As you can see, she’s quite the poser.
