Garden Centre Manager
Blooms Rugby Garden Centre started life as Bernhard's Corner Nursery growing ornamental and fruit trees in tandem with a cash and carry trade nursery. Then owned by Jeffery Bernhard, legendary founder of the Garden Centre Association, it is located in the heart of Warwickshire by the 'straight mile' intersection on the A45 - its proximity to the ancient Fosse Way leading to many a speculation about ghostly appearances around the site!
Taken over by Blooms of Bressingham, it was completely redeveloped and opened as a spectacular destination centre in 2005, retaining its fine horticultural credentials with a vast array of top quality growing stock and gardening products. It is now run by a knowledgeable team of cheerful and helpful staff whose willingness to go the extra mile and share their gardening expertise is a hit with amateur and expert gardeners alike.
Whilst the heart of the business remains horticultural, this is complemented by a huge shopping area stocking gifts, cards, clothing, books, cookware and much more. We also stock a large selection of Wild Bird Care from food to feeders. Machinery is also avaliable in store to buy or hire.
