The Bristol-based centre is the largest garden centre in the city and has been re-designed with the aim of sparking a love of gardening in all ages – offering a choice of thousands of different plants, shrubs and trees. An extensive outdoor area (91,221sq ft) has been built within an attractive landscaped environment along with other new features which inclue:

-    Botanic Kitchen – an open-plan restaurant area serving a classic twist on British dishes. Its open-plan design, within a plant-filled setting, features a new autumn/winter menu
-    A kids’ soft play area so that vistiors can tuck into their meals whilst the little ones play.
-    Walter Smith Farm Shop, which is offering locally-sourced produce.

Paul Butchers, Cadbury Garden Centre Manager, said: "Our new-look garden centre will not only offer quality, range and value to customers who love their home and garden; but also a unique day-out destination for all the family to enjoy.

"We look forward to welcoming new customers through our doors and are confident they will enjoy the experience. With the countdown to Christmas already beginning and our Christmas preview night around the corner, we are also looking forward to bringing the joy of Christmas to Bristol."

The centre has planned a series of fun-filled events leading up to Christmas to celebrate its new look, with activities on offer for the whole family. These events include:

-    Halloween events for children at half term
-    Santa’s Arrival with a reindeer parade on November 7
-    breakfast and tea with Father Christmas, and launch of its ice rink, on November 14
-    a "make your own tinsel" workshop on November 21 and
-    a food and drink festival on November 28 and 29

Cadbury Garden Centre has also appointed a charity champion – James Searle-Mallon – and an environment champion - Gary Upham Jones – who will be responsible for building links with the local community.
