Squire’s Garden Centres has bought Heathlands Garden Centre in Wokingham. Previously owned by Wyevale, the garden centre will now be known as Squire’s in Wokingham.

All 33 employees will work for Squire’s, including the Manager Graham Carter, plus not forgetting Petunia the resident cat! The garden centre offers a wide selection of plants, garden products and gifts, plus there’s an air-conditioned indoor play area, Café Bar, and free customer parking. The Clearance Sale at Squire’s is now on with many items reduced, and new plants, products and gifts will arrive soon in anticipation of the autumn gardening season.

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.”

Squire’s is a successful family-owned horticultural business, with 16 garden centres across Surrey, Sussex, North London and Berkshire.
