Garden Centres – The Most Important Retailers in 10 Years

Tim Smit from Eden Project really caught everyones imagination at the awards ceremony at GLEE in the UK. His thinking is very much inline with mine, here is a snippet from his speech. The above quote comes from Tim Smit, one of the co-founders of the UK’s Eden Project in Cornwall on recieving a prestigious award. Smit said the biggest issue in the next decade would be food security and told garden centre retailers to prepare for the most exciting ride of their lives. Cities in the UK will soon begin to look markedly different, Smit claimed, as more land is used to grow food and said that garden centres will assume a crucial role within the community. Garden centres will be social centres where families go to get the tools to grow their food, he said, not just retailers selling equipment and accessories to hobbyists.
