Garden centre planned for former Lincolnshire farm site

A £2m garden centre with a restaurant, food hall and local shops is to open at an old farm site in Lincolnshire.

Market Rasen farmer David Nelstrop has bought the derelict former Cherry Tree Farm site in Glentham, Lincolnshire to turn it into a garden centre.

Willows Garden Centre, set to open at the end of February, will create about 30 full and part time jobs.

Garden centre general manager James Carter is a former Crowders and Dobbies employee.

There will be a food hall, an 80-seat restaurant, several shops, play area, and an ice cream parlour.

Within the next three years Nelstrop plans to turn the other half of the site into a holiday log cabin and static caravan park, with a fishing lake.
