The steel frame of the building is being put into place, following the completion of ground works in mid-July.
The Flower Bowl will be a multi-purpose leisure complex offering entertainment, dining and leisure facilities, including only the second curling rink in England. It will generate at least 80 new jobs for the area.
Managing director Guy Topping said: "Even though we’ve been working on this for many months, it always seems more exciting once you can see the structure actually taking shape.
"Behind the scenes we’re designing the interior of the building, to give it the same ‘wow factor’ that has helped make our garden centre such a success. We’re aiming for an opening date in late spring 2018."
Facilities will include a four sheet Curling Rink, ten pin bowling, a three-screen cinema, an all-weather crazy golf course and two golf simulators. There will also be two restaurants, one of which will be a fish and chip restaurant.
The Flower Bowl will be a single storey building with a grass roof, which might eventually have sheep grazing on it.
Meanwhile, a new food hall and restaurant has opened at Webbs of Wychbold, featuring a Himalayan Salt Chamber, a cheese and deli counter, a gelato bar, a bakery and patisserie, a chocolate library, a wall of wine, local beers and ciders, Buxtons master butchers and a restaurant offering a wide selection of homemade hot dishes, salads, sandwiches, handmade cakes, and loose-leaf. The food head is Dudley Clifford.
