Notcutts chief executive Nick Burrows said: "Our year ends in February and we are forecasting another solid year of sales growth." Burrows instigated a £45m repositioning plan last year.

Staines Phase 2 project is due to complete in March resulting in complete redevelopment of the centre.

Next projects in the plan to start this year are restaurant developments in Woodford Park and Rivendell and centre redevelopments in Woodbridge and Ditchling – Garden Pride. 

The new property director leading this programme is Andrew Ingleton whose previous experience includes property roles with Queens Moat Houses Hotels, Millennium and Copthorne Hotels, Davis Langdon LLP and Barchester Healthcare.

Notcutts will unveil a blue plaque in Woodbridge on Feb 11 to mark 120 years to the day when Roger Crompton Notcutt, already building a local reputation for his expertise with chrysanthemums in particular, bought the Woodbridge Nursery.
