The Frost family has been a significant force in the garden centre industry for more than half a century.
Established in 1946, the Frosts name has become synonymous with quality and style in gardening. The original garden shop and plant department opened in 1962. Harvey Frost, with the help of his sons Brian and Adrian, opened Frosts at Woburn Sands. This was one of the first garden centres in the UK and quickly became established as a leader in its field. Today, the business is still family owned and run by brothers, Jeremy and James Frost.
