De Beer and partner Tim Cupper have built De Beers Garden Centre at the fuchsia nursery, the final part of which, the outdoor plantarea, opened last week. It now sells a range of garden-centre goods as well as fresh flowers and meals in its café.
De Beer and Cupper bought the centre in November 2008. The site was originally owned by De Beer's great grandparents, who bought the plot of land in 1906.
The couple grew fruit and vegetables to sell locally for the next 60 years, until the business was passed down to De Beer's parents, who expanded the centre and created a garden shop with Rachel working for them when she was a teenager.
They sold the business to Chelsea gold medal-winning Fuchsiavale Nurseries, which ran the centre from 1984 until 2008 under John Ridding and then Helen Andre.
De Beer, who had become a nurse, said: "Last year me and Tim were both looking for a career change and when I heard the centre was for sale I jumped at the chance. The business has now come full circle and it just feels like it was meant to be."
Cupper said: "I'm amazed at the support and number of people who love them. Enthusiasts travel miles to see them. We supply all over the country."
With grower Michael Otley, who has been at the business 27 years, Cupper hopes to increase production of the 240 varieties and will have stands at shows including Malvern.
