In 2017, our popular Eastbourne Garden Centre is undergoing a major extension, with an additional 20,000 sqft due to be added by May 2017. The extra space will allow room for five additional concessions. It will also create even more space in our Centre to offer a great range of quality plants, garden accessories and home items.
Development work, led by our construction partner Fordingbridge, began in December 2016, with demolition and clearing. In 2017, building work has continued including planting of 40 Ulmus New Horizon trees, grown on Hillier’s field nurseries.
Chris Francis, Hillier Wholesale and Retail Director, comments: “We are very excited about this extension project. Eastbourne is well-loved by the community and the largest of our 12 garden centres. With the extra space and concessions, we hope to build an even better destination for our customers.”
