North Walsham Garden Centre is celebrating a significant milestone this year as it marks 25 years since its establishment.

Originally purchased by David Youngs in 1999, the garden centre has since become a popular destination for gardening enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.

Although David Youngs sadly passed away in 2011, his legacy lives on through the dedicated efforts of his family. His son Ben, daughters Emily and Victoria, and sister Janice have taken the reins, ensuring that the garden centre continues to thrive and flourish for years to come.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Ben Youngs and Emily Paterson are two of the owners of North Walsham Garden Centre

Ben said: “With a team of 25 staff members who are passionate about plants and committed to providing exceptional customer service, North Walsham Garden Centre has become more than just a place to purchase flowers and gardening supplies – it’s a hub of community engagement and a source of inspiration for both novice and experienced gardeners.”

Over the past quarter of a century, the garden centre has evolved and expanded. It offers a wide range of products and services to cater to the diverse needs of its customers, from vibrant blooms to expert gardening advice.

The Youngs family and their dedicated team are inviting the community to join in with the 25th anniversary celebrations.

The centre, in Norwich Road, also has a team of award-winning landscapers a garden machinery department and a restaurant for shoppers to enjoy some refreshments.

And another star attraction is Acer the cat – a big hit with visitors to the centre. Acer walked in six years and was adopted by the centre after they were unable to track down an owner.
“He wondered in like he owned the place and he has become a local cat celebrity,” added Ben.
