Welcome to Bridgnorth Garden Centre, proud to be a part of the British Garden Centres family. Charles, Robert, Phillippa and the team look forward to seeing you soon.
Bridgnorth Garden Centre formally known as Gardenlands Garden Centre was acquired by the British Garden Centres family in 2019. We have a great selection of concessions, such as Regatta, Edinburgh Woollen Mill, Cotton Traders, Weird Fish, Pavers Shoes and The Garden Buildings Centre.
Where it all started...
Bridgnorth Garden Centre was originally owned by Bob Price (a TV Gardener for ATV). He purchased the land here at Bridgnorth in 1966 and set up a large wooden greenhouse, this is when 'Gardenlands' garden centre was born. In later years, the site was acquired by Sid Armstrong who also used the land for a Gun Club and Clay Pigeon shooting site. (The club's building was later rented by North Shropshire College who taught computer and animal courses until 2018.)
In the early 1980’s a Dutch man called Hank Homers bought the centre and developed it greatly into the centre you see here today. Hank created a small nursery on land at the back of the centre which housed several large poly tunnels. Due to a storm in 1987 the poly tunnels were unfortunately pulled to the ground, leaving them to be rebuilt a short while later. In 2000, Hank sold the centre to 'Garden and Leisure' a small chain of garden centres who ran the nursery for another 2 years. The poly tunnels Hank re-built still stand and will hopefully be used in the near future at Bridgnorth.
The Garden Centre was purchased in 2013 by Wyevale and continued trading under them until 2019 when Bridgnorth joined the British Garden Centres family.
We have a great selection of concessions, such as Regatta, Edinburgh Woollen Mill, Cotton Traders, Weird Fish and Pavers Shoes, come see for yourself!
