Garden Centre Manager (Holding)
Situated on the A428 just outside the historic village of Harlestone Heath, Harlestone Heath Garden Centre started life as a quarry supplying the honey-coloured stone used to build many of the houses. The surrounding pine forest is the only undisturbed acid heathland left in Northamptonshire and is home to a nature reserve with SSI status - a horticulturalist's dream with its rare acid-loving plants.
Dog walkers visiting the pine forest will be interested to know that our restaurant has a segregated seating area where we have allowed dogs, with cages provided by Pets Corner.
With such a special location, it is quite fitting that the centre should have a reputation for horticultural excellence. Top quality growing stock appeals to both amateur and expert gardeners alike and a cheery team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff takes great pride in going the extra mile and dispensing good practical advice on every aspect of garden care.
Whilst the centre remains focussed on plants and gardening products, these are complemented with garden furniture, wild bird products, a great range of giftware and cards, and several concessions including Maidenhead Aquatics, Pets Corner, Antler Luggage, Roman Originals and The Works.
