Squire’s takes over Heathlands Garden Centre in Wokingham

A WOKINGHAM garden centre is now under new management.

Squire’s Garden Centres has bought Heathlands Garden Centre, which was previously owned by Wyevale.

All 33 employees will work for Squire’s, including the manager Graham Carter, and resident moggy Petunia.

There continues to be a selection of plants, garden products and gifts and the cafe has been retained.

Anthony Jones, Chief Operating Officer at Wyevale Garden Centres, said: “We are delighted to have sold Heathlands Centre to a highly respected operator, and that it will continue to be run as a garden centre.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank our colleagues at Heathlands who have been so instrumental in making it the brilliant operation it is today and wish them all the best under new ownership.”

Sarah Squire, Squires Chairman, said, “We are delighted to welcome Heathlands to Squire’s Garden Centres. As a family business, firmly rooted in south-west London and nearby home counties, Heathlands is an excellent addition to our group and will be known as Squire’s in Wokingham.

“We will be making improvements to the garden centre over time, but we like our garden centres to be different and have their own unique character.

“We look forward to working with the team at the centre and really getting to know and understand the local community.”
