MORE than 50 jobs at a Chirk garden centre have been saved after it was bought by another company.

Moreton Park Garden Centre near Gledrid roundabout has been bought by Dobbies Garden Centres for an undisclosed fee.

Previous owners Wyevale launched a sell-off plan in May 2018, which has since seen 85 of its stores sold on to new ownership.

Before the plan was revealed, Wyevale was the largest garden centre chain in the UK with just under 150 stores.

Dobbies has also purchased another Shropshire garden centre, taking over Telford Garden Centre in Donnington to save a further 40 jobs.
