Chris Bonnett set up Gardening Express when he was still a teenager, studying for a degree at Writtle College, world-renowned in the world of horticulture. That was a decade ago. He relaunched the site in 2005, shortly after graduating, having worked hard to build the business alongside his studies. Perhaps because of Chris's deep appreciation and understanding of horticulture, Gardening Express is known for its dedication to quality, service and value for money. It is now one of the largest independent online Garden Centres in the UK. It has expanded to Europe and has formed partnerships with high-profile brands such as Oxford Street stores, as well as other garden centre groups.
