    Default Wyevale

    Anyone else seen / heard the rumours about wyevale garden centres getting sold off.
    Is it true? Are there going to be bargains to be had?
    Where are our googling sleuths to find out the truth ( you know who you are ladies ).

    I'm I late to this party? Is it common knowledge already

    There's one near me that reopened about 2 years ago, having burnt down.
    Its had all sort of names/owners - it was Blooms last time.

    Default Wyevale for sale

    Just read in The Garden that Wyevale up for sale.

    The article suggested that some of the sites may go for building.

    What's worrying is that they had only just acquired Woodcote Green in Wallington, which is an excellent garden centre that raises a lot of its own plants.Wyevale for sale-screen-shot-2018-08-15-12.21.26.jpg
