Squire’s Twickenham

2024 sees the 60  year anniversary of Squire’s very first garden centre. Squire’s Twickenham was opened by Colin Squire back in 1964, it was pioneering as one of only a handful of garden centres across the country at the time.  When Squire’s was founded in 1935 the main activities were landscaping small domestic gardens. During the 1960s people became more interested in gardening for themselves rather than employing a gardener.  In response to this, Squire’s opened its first garden centre in Sixth Cross Road, Twickenham, in 1964. Over the years, horticultural retailing has become the most important part of the business, with garden centres created at Shepperton, Badshot Lea, Hersham, Chertsey, Woking, West Horsley, Crawley, Reigate, Long Ditton, Washington, Stanmore, Milford, Cobham, Frensham and Wokingham.
