Stone Cross Nurseries to relocate garden centre

Published: 1 October 2007
Sussex retailer moves back to original site.
Stone Cross Nurseries, which announced its closure in August this year to make way for housing, is to relocate near its original site on Dittons Road, East Sussex.

The current site will still close in September, however it will re-open in February 2008 with an emphasis on services for plant and gardening enthusiasts.

The 50-year-old, family-run garden centre decided to close as poor weather and competition from the supermarkets hit sales.

Stone Cross Nurseries was established in 1956 by Garth and Julie Winwood in Stone Cross.

The family business of Stone Cross is now run by their son Garry Winwood and comprises the Stone Cross Plant Centre (to open in 2008) and an online store, Natures Plants.

The centre not only sells and grows crops, but also sells 'own-grown produce' from two production sites, Peelings & Saxon Nurseries (trade name Saxon Plants) and Nursery.
