During the past 20 or so years garden centres have evolved and continue to evolve to become significant retail outlets, like Houghton Hall Garden Centre.
It is a development from the concept of the retail plant nursery but with a wider range of outdoor products and site facilities. It is now also usual for garden centres to obtain their stock from plants which have been propagated elsewhere, such as by specialist nurseries or wholesalers.
In addition to this, recent advancements in food retail – in the shape of cafes, restaurants, farm shops and food halls – have become a central part of the offer at garden centres nationwide. Walkers Garden Centre is a perfect example of a multifaceted garden centre business.
What were at one time humble plants nurseries have now evolved into versatile retail and leisure hubs, pursuing all sorts of complementary business opportunities in everything from furniture to food.
