Garden and Leisure Group

The Garden & Leisure Group was one of the UK's most successful garden and leisure retailers, comprising of seven garden centres assisted by a head office support team. The Garden Centre Group announces in 2013 that they acquired The Garden & Leisure Group from Louis Delhaize, which also owns Truffaut, a leading French garden centre group.


The Garden Centre Group (formerly Wyevale Garden Centres) was a British garden centre business. It had 154 locations in England and Wales at its peak, making it the largest garden centre operator in the UK. By acquiring the Blooms of Bressingham chain in February 2007, it became the largest garden centre business, trading under both the Wyevale and Blooms identities.


Dobbies Garden Centres became the country's largest national garden centre operator in 2018 after purchasing the great majority of Wyevale and Blooms locations due to financial concerns. The final outlets were sold and transformed to British Garden Centres in 2019, with any remaining locations sold to independent owners and smaller chains.
