Otter Garden Centre is proving to be more than green fingered after installing car charging points at its Ottery branch.
Customers with electric cars will be able to top up their vehicles for free while they shop as the new installation can charge two vehicles at a time.
The family-run business also has points at its Plymouth, Wincanton and Lymington branches.
The UK is estimated to have 130,000 electrical vehicles on the road, which is predicted to rise to 200,000 by the end of the year.
Jacqui Taylor, managing director for the garden centre, said: “Through these car charging stations, we can give something back to our customers who go the extra green mile on the road.”
The installation was carried out by SOL Electrical.
Marie Yexley, SOL Electrical project manager, said: “We are delighted that Otter Garden Centres is providing this service for visiting EV drivers who can both use the newly installed charging facilities and enjoy all the garden centres have to offer.”
