Director, Mark Cleary said “Katie and Huw are our two longest serving employees who have recently hit this impressive milestone. Christina and I would like to thank them for their hard-work and dedication over the years contributing to the growth and success of the business.”

Manager, Huw Lewis added “I started working for the business on weekends whilst I was in school and progressed through the ranks to general manager. It’s been a pleasure to be part of the business for so long and being part of its growth from a small nursery to the Garden Centre, Restaurant and Farm Shop combination we are today.”

Manager, Katie Eckley said “I love being part of our family business working alongside my parents, brother and sister. My parents are an amazing inspiration and their tireless hard-work and determination to offer the best experience to customers has definitely rubbed off onto me, Liam and Shaunagh. We are determined to carry on the ethos and values they have built and keep the standards expected of a garden centre crowned Best Garden Centre in Wales and the West.”
