Rosebourne rebrands as Hillier acquisition progresses
The Rosebourne garden centres at Aldermaston, Weyhill and Hampton-in-Arden have undergone some significant changes following their merge into the Hillier Garden Centre group, bringing “a vast array of high-quality and expertly grown plants, seasonal events, and tasty food offerings to the people of Reading, Hampshire and Solihull”.
In 2022, Hillier expanded its garden centre portfolio with the acquisition of Rosebourne Garden Centres. Since then, the company said it has been “working hard to introduce exciting changes throughout the three centres, bringing them in line with the Hillier family and providing visitors with an enhanced offering and exclusive perks.”
“Visitors to the centres will now find an offering of top-quality seasonal plants, many grown at Hillier Nurseries,” read a Hilliers statement. “The nurseries, in Hampshire, grow over one million plants a year in peat-free compost, which are sold exclusively at Hillier Garden Centres, ensuring an elite range of products for visitors to purchase.
“One of the most notable changes across the three new centres is that the highly regarded restaurants have been further enhanced with the transformation into the much-loved Hillier Mulberry and Thyme restaurant brand. The welcoming restaurants will include some old favourites, as well as some exciting new additions to the menu as well which are already proving popular.
“Locals have been pleased to hear that the Rosebourne food halls are here to stay. Packed full of seasonal produce, the food hall provides shoppers with a range of fresh and delicious food such as fruit and vegetables, cakes, condiments and much more from local suppliers.”
