The former Scotts Miracle-Gro general manager pointed out that with an experienced team, a clear set of business standards and an "exciting retail environment", life has been good since taking over from Dennis Espley at the start of May.
Breddy said there have been challenges switching from being a retailer to a supplier but added that Squire's "solid foundations" have helped him to settle in well.
He said he will look at adding to Squire's 15 centres in the future but at the moment the focus is on redevelopments, with Chertsey currently underway and more in the planning pipeline. Brexit will have a short-term impact on prices because of the weakening of sterling but he is confident that garden centres can continue to offer value.
Squire's won a gold medal for its RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show garden, designed by Catherine MacDonald and built by Landform.
