Some 2,000 people voted and the winning name was Wold's View, beating other options Banovallum, and Horncastle.

The centre, managed by Ken Dawson, is holding an opening weekend this weekend including special events.

Crowders, which is one of the UK's biggest amenity nurseries, has a website that it hopes will replicate garden centre's sales after selling the centre itself in January.
