The redevelopment work is in addition to the £2.5m expansion of the restaurant, which will double capacity to 400 (HW, 13 March). The work on the restaurant is due to be completed in October, with new features including a coffee bar, pizza oven and a daily carvery.
Haskins Garden Centres managing director Julian Winfield said the store's redevelopment is not just cosmetic. He said: "The centre's internal layout will be greatly improved to meet the demand from our customers.
"The centre of attraction will continue to be an ever-growing selection of houseplants with new display benches and signage."
Winfield said the company is working hard to avoid disruption to its customers and the centre's £9m annual turnover.
