Garden centre just outside Ashton goes on the market

The Calder family, who have owned the popular Daisy Nook Garden Centre on the border of Ashton and Droylsden, for over half a century, have announced that they are selling up.

Company chairman Richard Calder said: "We have loved running the centre and getting to know so many loyal customers however we don't have another younger generation of the family wanting to take it on so it's inevitable that we offer the business for sale."

"We are advertising it as a 'going concern' and hope very much to find a buyer who will continue and develop the business and ensure that our wonderful team of staff stay here. We're advised that this won't be a quick process, so we'll be around for quite a while yet, I'm sure," the 76-year-old added.

The garden centre, set opposite the country park and next to the M60, occupies almost five acres and opened in 1972.
