Departure of Daylesford Organics concession sees Clifton Nurseries add new café and retail area to its offering

Clifton Nurseries, based in London's Maida Vale, has a new café and retail area after Daylesford Organics moved out last week.

Retail manager Guy Pullen said the move would enable the exclusive garden centre to sell "all the products we want to sell".

The 105sq m former glasshouse that housed Daylesford's food business will now house gardening ancillaries, furniture and half-hardy plants. A further space opened as a new café last week.

Daylesford, founded by JCB chairman Sir Anthony Bamford's wife Lady Bamford, also recently shut its butcher's in Pimlico Green, London.

Daylesford has a garden shop in Chelsea and four more London outlets as well as a farm shop in Gloucestershire.

Clifton shares plant buyer Len Bellis with Waddesdon Manor Plant Centre in Buckinghamshire.
