Garden Centre Manager (holding)
The centre started life more than three decades ago as a nursery owned by Don Johnson, a local plants man and radio commentator. The original glasshouses remain to this day and were used for growing tomatoes in what was then Five Acres nursery. Don converted the nursery into a garden centre, since when storms, floods and various other disasters have dampened us but not our enthusiasm for our business and our customers!
We sell top quality growing stock, gardening products and garden furniture as well as birdcare products, floristry, houseplants and books. We also have a fabulous giftware and greeting card department and at Christmas, an inspiring display of decorations, lights and trees. Our coffee shop sells delicious home-made snacks and light lunches whilst our staff are friendly and helpful horticultural experts who like nothing more than giving good practical advice to expert and amateur gardeners alike.
We all look forward to welcoming you to the centre soon.
