8th April 2024


North Devon institution St John's Garden Centre has changed hands after being acquired by two former employees.

Jason Mellett and Mark Toon are the new owners after buying the business with its garden centres in Barnstaple and at Ashford from the Oliver family, who have operated the hugely well-known local business for 66 years. With more than 70 years of St John's service between them, former account manager Jason and landscape contract manager Mark became the official owners of St John's Saturday March 30th.

Former joint owner Nick Oliver welcomed the sale and said: “We are delighted that Mark and Jason are taking over. They have been long serving members of our staff and understand the business ethos and our commitment to serving customers.”
