Otter Nurseries rebrands as garden centre

The rebranded Otter Garden Centres have changed logo to add a more contemporay feel.

Jacqui Taylor is managing director and Ros Govier is plant buyer.

Otter's first garden centre was founded in Ottery St Mary in the early 1964, when Malcolm and Marilyn White began growing vegetables and plants to sell in East Devon markets.

Otter has since added four more garden centres in Plymouth, Torbay, Wincanton and Lymington. 

The company grows 80% of the plants it sells with the Ottery St Mary centre covering 40ha and includeing growing fields, polytunnels and glasshouses.
