Wyevale Garden Centres

Formerly known as The Garden Centre Group, Wyevale Garden Centres was a chain in England and Wales.

In May 2018 the company launched a sale process and sold off 145 of its garden centres in 57 different transactions. A total of 37 centres were sold to Dobbies across three separate transactions, 37 centres were sold to British Garden Centres in six separate transactions, 16 centres were sold to Blue Diamond in three separate transactions, and five centres sold to Hillier.

As a result, 90% of the stores continued to trade as garden centres and 95% of employees retained their jobs.

Wyevale, which launched in 1932, was the biggest garden retailer in the UK prior to its sale. In its last few years of trading significant improvements had been made across the business with advancements in stock availability and operating standards.
