The British Garden Centres Story

The story of the British Garden Centres begins in the sleepy Lincolnshire village of Woodthorpe, the home of our company founders, Charles and Robert Stubbs. Charles started the business whilst still at school – he sold seedlings and Leylandii to neighbours and passers-by from a stall at the end of their drive.

Through hard work, determination and drive, the business grew with Woodthorpe Garden Centre, being their first, opening in 1987. The business flourished under the ownership of Charles and brother Robert, becoming famous for, amongst other things, huge sales of compost to keen gardeners from all over the region. Over the years, the brothers’ reputation grew far and wide. They were featured on the local news program Calendar for their entrepreneurial skills.

Growing

The business at Woodthorpe grew and, with the addition of Brigg Garden Centre, the company’s reputation for quality and value began to spread. Further centres were added, and the company became known as the British Garden Centres Group. Since 2018 the company has grown at a rate even faster than Charles and Robert could ever have imagined and now has 60 centres around the country. Their ambition to have a British Garden Centre within easy reach of everyone in the UK really is starting to take shape!

The Future

In 2023 their new online store opened allowing customers to shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and have products delivered straight to their door.  Check out their centres and online store here.
