Construction on Rosebourne, the purpose-built garden centre that will replace the former Weyhill Nursery near Thruxton, is continuing apace. The build coincides with the announcement of Rosebourne?s next key senior appointment, as well as a recruitment drive filling 80 new openings.

A company spokesperson said: ?With plans to open to the public in time for this August Bank Holiday, construction of Rosebourne has forged ahead. The site has already been cleared, the foundations laid and the main structure of the garden centre erected in late January.

?Once completed, Rosebourne will set a new benchmark in garden centres, offering customers a fresh approach with a focus on locally-sourced produce, excellent dining, traditional plants and unique gifts.?

Neville Prest, Managing Director, said: ?It?s an exciting time as we continue to realise our vision to create an exciting, thriving and quality leisure and shopping destination. Rosebourne will showcase the very best of Hampshire?s food, drink and plant producers in a relaxed setting. It is quickly taking shape.”

Speaking of the company’s new staff addition, Neville Prest said: ?We are delighted to welcome Adam Dorber to the company?and to have his expertise and knowledge.?
