Hillier Garden Centres and the Syon Park Estate have announced the spring 2021 opening of Hillier Syon Park. Hillier will work with the Estate to transform the garden centre with both businesses investing significantly to improve the site.
Hillier owns 17 garden centres across the South of England, including five centres acquired from Wyevale in 2019. It grows around one million plants a year across its Hampshire nurseries and is the largest grower of semi-mature trees in Europe.
Following handover of the site, both Hillier and the Estate will be investing significantly into Hillier Garden Centre Syon Park to transform the visitor experience. Visitors will be able to look forward to browsing a great range of top-quality plants. Many of these will be grown by Hillier at the company’s nurseries in Hampshire. Organised in plant areas using ‘plant for purpose’ displays, gardeners will easily be able to find the right plant for the right place.
“We are delighted to be adding Syon Park to our Hillier Garden Centres family,” comments Chris Francis, Hillier Garden Centre and Wholesale Nurseries director. “Syon Park is an outstanding destination in south west London and a great fit with our existing centres. Not to mention already being part of our Hillier heritage, with the company founder working there many decades ago! We are looking forward to getting to know the local gardening communities and inspiring them with our great range of quality plants, Hillier expertise and creating a real destination for them. It is very exciting times ahead!”
