Dobbies has unveiled plans for a £10m investment that will see a 4,500sq m outlet built next to Ikea at the shopping centre. The centre will employ 120 people.
The proposed garden centre is a replacement for the company's smaller centre at Paisley, where housing is planned.
Dobbies director of properties Stuart Wright said: "The proposed Dobbies Garden World at Braehead will give the people of Renfrewshire and the surrounding area the very best garden centre."
There are 25 Dobbies garden centres. The company was was founded 144 years ago by James Dobbie, who was chief constable and public prosecutor in Renfrew.
An exhibition about the proposed garden centre will be at Braehead Shopping Centre on 10 December.
