A FAMILY-RUN, independent garden centre and nursery is celebrating 33 years in business serving different generations in Wellington.

The Willowbrook Nursery & Garden Centre, in West Buckland, Wellington, aims to “provide you with plants that have been grown to suit our local area to make sure that they will provide you with many years of enjoyment”.

The business “started small”, as owner Stephen Grabham said, by growing plants in a back garden.

Mr Grabham, who runs the garden centre with his mum Carol, said: “We are a locally based garden centre and nursery. We try to sell plants that we grow here on-site.

“We cover everything related to gardening like compost, tools, sprays, and all the accessories. We also have a café and tea room, an aquatic shop, and a pet shop.

“We are a family-run business, and I run it with my mum Carol. We started small, growing plants in our back garden, then it gradually became bigger and that’s what we do – We know plants and we grow plants.

“A lot of customers come here since we have been here. We have seen different generations, and we are happy to see them.”
