The site on which Burston Garden Centre and Hertfordshire Fisheries is located has been owned by the Pearson family since the 1978. To this day the family maintain a high level of interest, participation and commitment to both the Garden Centre and the Aquatics arm of the business.
Brothers John and Richard Pearson founded Burston Nurseries (adjacent to the Garden Centre) and were then instrumental in establishing Burston Garden Centre on site in 1978. The centre is a family owned independent centre.
Since 1978 the Garden Centre has gone from strength to strength and has grown considerably and successfully over the year. The building that you see today was a total re-build in 1997 following a catastrophic fire.
The restaurant within has mirrored the success of the centre; soon outgrowing it’s original ‘café’ existence. It was fully refurbished in 2012.
