From the Davies Family
Our family are thrilled to have recently taken Raglan Garden Centre back after a four year hiatus. We have restored the business as an independent family run centre that serves as a destination for all the local community. We bring a passion for gardening, expert knowledge, creative sourcing and a shopping environment centred on family values with service and a smile thrown in.
We saw an opportunity and first bought the business in 1991, at that time the site had fallen into disrepair. The previous owner’s investment strategy had nor fared so well and the company was forced to sell. So Raglan Garden Centre was born, guided by a vision to create an experience that could offer more for the home and garden. Over the next twenty years we grew the food offering from a 40 seat log cabin café to a 140 seat attractive restaurant with stunning views. We improved and expanded the planteria, the shop added a food hall, a dedicated interiors shop and a pets and aquatics department. Finally new franchises joined us to complete the site. The centre gained recognition as a place of excellence by winning the GCA Best Garden Centre for Wales and the West for three years in our latter tenancy.
We sold the centre in 2014 to Wyevale Garden Centres with a view to retirement and looking after our own garden. However, when the centre came up for sale in 2018 we couldn’t resist being back at the helm. With renewed garden knowledge and a second generation now involved, we plan to serve the community as seasonal garden and home experts, bringing you high quality, interesting and affordable plants, furniture, accessories and essentials for your garden and home.
We look forward to welcoming new and old customers to Raglan once again.
