Horticulture Week Podcast #4: Matthew Appleby visits Ladds Garden Centre redevelopment

HW editor Matthew Appleby visits Granary Group managing director Jon Burke at the redevelopment of Ladds Garden Village in Berkshire.

The centre is being transformed into a contemporary and eco-friendly garden retail village with a food hall, farm shop, cafe-restaurant, courtyard garden and lighting and furniture showroom. It will be renamed the Berkshire Gardener when it reopens in March 2021. 

Burke discusses the challenges of redeveloping the site during the coronavirus crisis and how he sees the opportunities in the garden retail sector as he looks to develop an independent garden centre group with new acquisitions in the pipeline.
