About Thatcham Garden Centre

Thatcham Garden Centre opened in October 2020. The centre was closed for 1 year prior before joining the family-owned British Garden Centre Group for renovation to become a first-class garden centre, with an emphasis on high-quality and value plants and products. The restaurant has also been completely renovated to the highest specification and it is a lovely place to dine.

The site was once known as Thatcham Fruit and Flower Farm in the early 1900s and soon became known as Henwick Fruit and Flower Farm. It also housed a school for Lady Gardeners, which was one of the few locations using the French cultivating system. In 1982 the site become a mushroom farm and was one until it was developed into a garden centre.
