Garden Centre Manager

Set in the spectacular Northumbrian countryside north of Morpeth, Heighley Gate is the North East’s largest garden centre. Originally a tiny independent pig and poultry farm, Heighley Gate began life in 1963 when the owners, the Lishmans, sold eggs to passing motorists. Regular customers spotted the vegetables growing in their greenhouse and a prolific business was born. More and more greenhouses were added and Heighley Gate grew from a small scale nursery and garden centre into the award-winning growing and retail operation of today.

It now lies in 40 acres of immaculately tended grounds and is renowned for both the excellence of its nursery-grown plants and its all-round appeal to gardeners and families alike. More than half the plants are home grown and the selection of hardy nursery stock is the most extensive in the North East.

The nursery remains at the heart of the business, however there is also a wide variety of shopping and entertainment on offer, indoor and outdoor children's play areas, as well as a great restaurant. Whilst the emphasis rests on top quality plants and gardening products, the genuinely warm welcome extended to every visitor remains Heighley Gate’s trademark, ensuring a day spent here is one never to be forgotten.
