Charlie Dimmock to open Squire’s Garden Centre in Woking

On Saturday 17th March gardening guru Charlie Dimmock will officially open Squire’s new garden centre in Woking.

Charlie Dimmock rose to fame on the BBC’s Ground Force programme, and now presents Garden Rescue. She will be at Squire’s in Woking all day on Saturday 17th March, so come and meet her and enjoy a day of fun-filled activities, including:

  • Official Opening & Tree Planting
    • With Charlie Dimmock and Squire’s Chairman Colin Squire OBE.
  • “Grow Your Own Chips” Competition
    • Watch Charlie Dimmock show local school children how to grow potatoes in pots. Children will take their pot home and see if they can grow more potatoes than Charlie!

  • Gardeners Question Time
    • Come and ask Charlie your gardening related questions.
  • Spring Container Workshop

The exterior of Squire’s Woking

The significant extension at Squire’s in Woking has created an absolutely stunning new garden centre. There’s an inspirational plant area complete with outdoor canopy and a much bigger shop offering a wider choice of gardening products, gifts and furniture.

The Café Bar has also been extended – the indoor space has a light and airy feel, and the outdoor verandah is a beautiful place to sit and admire the plants. There is now a full waiting service so you can order from the comfort of your table, plus every Sunday in March there’s live music from a classical guitarist between 12.30pm-2.30pm.

All this investment is great for customers and it’s also good news for local employment, as Squire’s have doubled the amount of staff with 62 now employed versus 30 employees last year.

Sarah Squire, Deputy Chairman at Squire’s commented; “Our garden centre in Woking has been completely transformed yet still remains one hundred percent true to our horticultural heritage, retains its sense of place and is sensitive to its location and the surrounding area. A huge amount of work has gone into the re-development, and I want to thank everyone involved. We look forward to welcoming customers back and to meeting new customers and hearing what they think of our new garden centre. I hope that they’ll be amazed and excited like me!”
