With its virtual doors open for nearly two weeks, the online garden centre www.hiddeneden.com has now welcomed over ten thousand visitors.

The vision of 22 year old serial entrepreneur Steven Timberlake, Hidden Eden provides inspiration for gardeners and those of us who love to live outdoors. "We wanted to provide gardeners with a web community which not only offered them great, quality products, but also free advice from a high profile expert", he said.

Esteemed horticulturist and broadcaster, Matthew Biggs writes for Hidden Eden, answering clients gardening questions, along with providing monthly gardening advice. Additionally he writes several free monthly factsheets for Hidden Eden's subscribed clients.

Part of the Hidden Eden master-plan, involves rolling out several pilot high street boutique garden centers, offering a selection of the products available to buy online. Commenting on the launch of Hidden Eden's first store, opening in Leamington Spa at the end of the month Timberlake said "we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to physically touch and feel our products along with seeing their quality. This allows us to merge the gap between internet shopping and bricks and mortar retailing by implementing innovative delivery systems"

Tapping into the huge current consumer zeitgeist of growing your own products, lead by celebrity gardeners and chefs. Hidden Eden have launched their own brand of heritage seeds which includes unforgettable varieties such as Lettuce "Drunken Woman" and Beetroot "Bulls Blood".

Contemporary outdoor living accessories such as Nickel Lanterns, Cast Iron Chimeneas and Firepits are all proving a popular choice for clients trying to make the most out of the short lived British summer.
