Our garden centre was opened in 1989 and was the realisation of a dream for our father Henry Shannon who had always wanted his own garden centre. It is now run by us, the next generation of the family, Bernard, Linda, Paul & Mary-Clare.  Sadly we lost our father Henry 'Bob' Shannon in July 2017  at the grand age of 86.  We still strive to maintain his high standards.

Our company has been pleasing customers for years. In fact in July 2019  our Garden Centre was 30 years old !
