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.
