Worsley Hall garden centre to close to make way for RHS garden

In January 2013, Peel Land and Holdings bought Worsley Hall Garden Centre and nearby land on the garden site for an estimated £9m, for development for the £100m Salford Forest Park proposed racecourse, which the Government rejected in 2010.

The garden centre site houses six businesses. Peel gave them all notice last week.

The garden centre is let and the site is made up of modern buildings which will be demolished when the site is developed in a £30m plan to build the RHS's Bridgewater garden, which it announced last week. Peel will be landlord, while the RHS is set to develop gardens, retail, catering and learning facilities.
