Owner sought for Home & Garden Group


The administrators acting on behalf of the ailing Home & Garden Group, which owns nine garden centres in the UK, have told GTN Xtra that they are trying to sell the business as a going concern.


“The first priority is to preserve jobs,” said Josh Voulters, National Communications Manager for Mazars.


Home & Garden Group, which employs a total of 164 staff at its nine centres, went into administration on March 27.


The group owns the following centres:

  • Rutland Garden Centre, Oakham
  • Leighton Buzzard Garden Centre, Bedfordshire
  • Willington Home and Garden
  • Ise Garden Centre, Kettering
  • Stansted Park Garden Centre, Rowlands Castle
  • David's Nurseries, Worcester
  • Shopwhyke Garden Centre, Chichester
  • Plowmans Garden Centre, Bournemouth
  • Floralands Garden Centre, Nottingham

The administration is being handled by Adam Harris in Mazars’ London office and by Patrick Lannagan in Manchester.
