A garden centre representative said: "Unfortunately due to a difficult trading year and complications with site developments, a 30-day consultation process has now begun regarding the future of the garden centre.
"The consultation process is a legal process which gives the company and staff time to discuss proposals and if possible find ways to mitigate or avoid redundancies.
"Until this consultation has ended we will not be in a position to comment further."
Palms Tropical Oasis at the garden centre shut in August.
Garden Centre Group's Bridgemere Centre is nearby. Dobbies has been mentioned in local planning documents as expressing an interest in the site.
