The centre has an extensive plant area, great range of gardening products, pets & aquatics department, gifts, furniture and Seasons Coffee Shop.
We run a series of topical workshops during the spring, summer and autumn months. Get hands on and learn from our inhouse expert James. They are a really enjoyable events, which many of our customers attend on a regular basis.
Over seventy five years ago, David Squire, known as DJ, Head Groundsman and gardener at the Police Orphanage in Twickenham was made redundant. With a young family to support he set up his own business, and that business has grown into a thriving, family-owned garden centre group which now comprises 11 garden centres, and rose, herbaceous and bedding plant nurseries. Today, DJ's son Colin is Chairman of the company, and continuing the family tradition Sarah, Colin's daughter is HR & Marketing Director.
When the company was founded in 1935 our main activities were landscaping small domestic gardens and the production of cut flowers and bedding plants from nurseries in Sunbury. During the 1939/45 war all landscape activities ceased and the nurseries were turned over to vegetable production. For a short period we built a number of air-raid shelters, Anderson shelters, in the grounds of houses in the Twickenham and Sunbury areas. At the end of the war we returned to our chief activities of nursery stock growing and landscape gardening. During the 1960′s people became ever more interested in gardening for themselves rather than employing a gardener.
