Surrey garden centre to relaunch following expansion

Frensham Garden Centre has invested around £1 million in the business and increased its heated and unheated open retail areas by nearly 50 per cent.

The grand opening of the refurbished centre will be from 4-6 March 2016.

Among refurbished departments opening are the camping and leisure department.

The centre also has a refurbished plantarea, 250-space car park and revamped interior and exterior.

Owner David Wheelhouse plans to be included within the top 100 garden centres in the country in turnover terms by the end of 2017.

Wheelhouse has owned the centre for 10 years.
