Squires Garden Centres began life way back in 1935, started by David Squire. The Second World War quickly interrupted his retail garden operations. David's son, Colin, had the forethought to concentrate activities gradually into growing containerised plants, very unusual at that time and an idea borrowed from American garden centres. The first Squires Garden Centre at Twickenham was opened in 1964 under Colin's management

In 1970 Squires bought a nursery in Shepperton which was soon expanded and converted into their second fully fledged garden centre. Further garden centres were developed during the 1970s and onwards. Their biggest expansion occurred in 2011 when Squires bought three garden centre previously in the Shoots group.
