Blue Diamond buys Blackdown Garden Centre

The Blue Diamond Group has increased its garden centre portfolio to 39 with the acquisition of Blackdown, near Taunton in Somerset. 


Blue Diamond Group, Managing Director, Alan Roper said: “This freehold 19-acre site just off the M5, south of Taunton, was one I could not resist.


“This site has the potential to become a sizeable destination garden centre and plugs a catchment gap between Sanders to the north and our Devon centres to the south. 


“The centre will receive a multi-million pound refurbishment in the summer.”


Blackdown Garden Centre has been a family-run business for many years and is set in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty.


Blackdown was taken over by Carnon Downs Garden Centre in Truro in late June 2009 after the centre went into administration on June 13th 2009.
