The business has moved to Cheam Plant Centre, at the family home of Allwood’s current owner David James. The previous site, Summerfield Nursery in Hassocks, is now up for sale. RH & RW Clutton is the estate agent handling the sale.
The company had outgrown the site and has struggled to keep up with demand over the past two years. Staying at Summerfield would have required heavy investment.
James said the move would be hugely beneficial, with 4500m2 of computer controlled glasshouse on the larger and more hi-tech site, allowing for expansion.
Allwoods nursery shop in Hassocks will remain open for the time being.
