Glendoick Garden Centre between Perth and Dundee in Scotland has doubled in size, with the revamp opened by Scotland's finance minister and local MSP John Swinney.
The new shop includes an all-weather planteria, a furniture shop, a houseplant section, gift, men's and women's departments, a birdcare section and a children's area with a Tardis and even a Dalek.
The enlarged greenhouse will allow customers to look and buy plants throughout the year and protect plants from winter damage.
The incorporation of triple insulation and heat pumps are designed to save up to 60 per cent on the heating bill and provide cooling in summer.
Glendoick used local suppliers from builders Algo, based in Perth, Pitlochry-based electrician RW Bell, Scottish green energy heat pump installers Environmental Heating Solutions and shopfitter Robert Workman at Grange.
Patricia and Peter Cox founded Glendoick in 1973. Their son, Kenneth and his wife, Jane, now run the centre, which is well-known for its rhododendrons and azaleas. About 50 full time and part time staff are employed.
