Work looks set to start on the first phase of a destination garden centre, restaurant and display gardens at Probus near Truro in Cornwall this spring.
Trelawney Garden Leisure owners, Danning & Symons Ltd, which already runs Trelawney@Wadebridge in Cornwall and Trelawney@Ashford in North Devon, will start work on the 4ha site in March.
Director David Danning said: "We’re delighted to be getting the project finally underway and aim to have it open in the autumn. The garden centre at Probus is an amazing project and we’re very excited about it."
The site is anticipated to create 80 full and part-time jobs.
He added: "Trelawney@Probus will be a gardening-related leisure destination and a centre of excellence for Cornwall. With the development of demonstration gardens it will offer the visitor so much more to see and do than a traditional garden centre might. It will attract people from all over the UK."
Danning said the project would be done in phases rather than all at once, with the first third scheduled as phase one. Plans have been in place since 2005.
