In 1987 a new site was identified on the outskirts of Larne on a dual carriageway with good easy access. A purpose built Garden Centre was developed. Over the last 13 years John and his wife Norma have developed the Garden Centre into one of the top centres in Northern Ireland.
John continues to search constantly for new and unusual plants and shrubs.
The Centre does not have a coffee shop or gift department, concentrating on the "Real Gardeners" giving expert advice and unusual plants.
