The store offers a range of plants and houseplants, gardening tools, outdoor furniture, gifts, pet products, and landscaping as well as seasonal products throughout the year.

Amy Stubbs, who is part of the family that owns the group and is overseeing the redevelopment said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring Harrogate into the British Garden Centres family. I’m excited by the prospect of re-opening the garden centre, we pulled out all the stops to open May bank holiday weekend.”

“We look forward to providing the good people of Harrogate, Ripon and beyond with a first-class garden centre. Over the next few weeks, we will be recruiting a large number of people for the garden centre and I’m looking forward to meeting them all.”
