Garden Centre Manager

Set in beautiful countryside between Leyland and Croston, Leyland Garden Centre lies on the A581 in the quirkily named village of Ulnes Walton. Originally a market garden selling tomatoes, lettuces and chrysanthemums from a tiny wooden shed by road, it was bought as Auldene Nurseries by ex-policeman Cyril Iddon in 1955 and converted into a garden centre.

Over the years it has expanded into the successful and popular centre of today, attracting customers from far and wide for its top quality growing stock and excellent customer service. Staffed by a friendly, knowledgeable and loyal team (several members of staff have been with the centre for more than 20 years!), the centre won 'North West Garden Centre of the Year' in 1993, and offers an all round one-stop shop for expert and amateur gardeners alike.

A wide array of plants and gardening products forms the heart of the business, enhanced by a great range of giftware, cards and garden furniture as well as concessions that include garden tool hire, garden machinery servicing, aquatics, clothing and a conservatory company. The icing on the cake, however, is the popular and attractive restaurant that serves delicious home-cooked food in a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
