In Surrey, a 1.7 acre nursery with 4,144.9 sq.m. (44,293 sq.ft.) of glasshouses is up for sale. It sits immediately to the front of Wyevale’s Woodcote Green Garden Centre, which with a turnover of circa £17M is perhaps the third largest garden centre by turnover in the country.
The nursery is up for sale through Quiton Edwards, who are Chartered Surveyors offering commercial property advice to the Garden Centre and Horticultural industry. They say the following about the property and its opportunities:
"Although it is currently used as a wholesale nursery by the current owner, it benefits from exactly the same planning consent as the garden centre behind and the glasshouses could be refurbished into retail use on a similar basis to some of the buildings on the garden centre.
Based on this amount of buildings and its location, not just in a highly populated and affluent area but immediately to the front of the garden centre, we are of the opinion that a turnover of £5M could be achieved in due course.
This is a very interesting and unusual opportunity where an operator could create a bijou garden centre with upmarket restaurant benefiting from the substantial number of customers who already come into Woodcote Green Garden Centre."
