Wyevale Garden Centre Cardiff re-opens following rebuild

Wyevale Garden Centre Cardiff, originally known as Uskley Nursery when it was owned by Jean Hughes, has re-opened two years after burning down.

The former Blooms centre has seven concessions as well as soft play and catering.

The garden centre re-launched on 21 November, with Hughes and local councillors present. Manager is Mike Greenwood.

Former manager Mike Greenwood returns with 69 staff.

Concessions include Maidenhead Aquatics, Regatta, Yankee Candle, Bon Marche, Cotton Traders, Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Pampered Pets, with more planned.

Planning for a rebuild was granted on 13 November 2014 for a 8,000sqm building and 4,000sqm plantarea, plus 200 space car park.

Architect was RGP Architects and client was LXB Partners. Civil engineers were ElliottWood.
