Cherry Lane creates 18 jobs at former Wyevale Barnett Hill

QD subsidiary Cherry Lane is to create 18 new jobs at the Clent garden centre in Worcestershire it has acquired from Wyevale and which is now trading as Barnett Hill by Cherry Lane.


The 34 existing staff have been retained at the site, where the plants offered will include many from the group’s nurseries in Worcester (David’s, bought last year), Beverley and Lowestoft.


The garden centre’s indoor and outdoor play areas remain open as normal as does the restaurant.


Cherry Lane promises to "deliver the great value and quality, which the brand is renowned for, across all departments including garden furniture, pet care and wild bird feed".

QD Group CE Nick Rubins said the acquisition was another great landmark for Cherry Lane. “We are a family-run business and this is a major purchase for our group. We are very pleased to welcome the team from Wyevale and are looking forward to sharing with shoppers our great value, excellent quality and ever-changing spectacular seasonal deals."


The site is Cherry Lane’s thirteenth garden centre, making it the UK’s eighth biggest garden centre group.
