Morrisons moves into garden centres
Supermarket chain Morrisons has opened garden centres in a quarter of its stores in the last year as it competes with specialist garden centre operators.
The company has been operating 129 temporary garden centres in car parks outside its stores during the last few months which will carry on trading over the summer according to the Grocer.
The centres have a variety of plants on sale costing between £1 and £70. A Morrisons spokesperson said: "We have a strong offer. Customers can find all the products they would in a traditional garden centre at cheaper prices."
It is estimated that the UK's love of gardening has resulted in 2,000 garden centres operating across th country in a market worth £4.8 billion.
