British Garden Centres arrives in Nottinghamshire

British Garden Centres (BGC) has announced the arrival of the group’s 59th garden centre. Timmermans Garden Centre of Woodborough, Nottingham joined BGC on Monday 14 February 2022. As with all the centres in the group, this centre will also carry a local name so will be renamed Woodborough Green Garden Centre.

Phillippa Stubbs, director of BGC South says: “We have known the site for many years and admired the way the Timmermans family have developed its strong reputation for quality plants, a wonderful restaurant and a great family shopping experience. We are looking forward to working with the team to develop the business further and build on its heritage.”

Timmermans Garden Centre has developed over the last 30 years into one of the leading garden centres in Nottinghamshire. In recent years Sophie & Greg Timmermans-Delves have invested in the centre and restaurant. Following an extensive refurbishment programme in 2011, the team went on to be named 2016 Garden Centre of the Year at the Garden Retail and Garden Industry Awards.

Speaking of the sale, Sophie – daughter of the founder – says: “Having grown up in the business we thought long and hard about who should become the next custodians of it. We are delighted that our team is joining the British Garden Centres family. As our family embarks on a new adventure, we are confident that the centre will flourish and continue to serve the good people of Nottinghamshire well.”

Woodborough Green Garden Centre is on the north-east side of Nottingham. Well situated between Nottingham & Newark to serve the area. The 8½ acre site has been home to Timmermans Roses for many years – a business dating back to the 1880s.

Woodborough Green is already recruiting for a number of additional colleagues. Full details can be found at
