Our Story

A story of transformation

In 2011, visiting a site under the railway arches of Ravenscourt Park tube station, Beryl Henderson knew she had found the next challenge for her and the N1 Garden Centre team. This was where they would create W6 – a truly life enhancing garden centre in the heart of London.

Having started N1 Garden Centre ten years earlier, Beryl was no stranger to the hard work and dedication needed to transform an unloved piece of London space into a flourishing garden centre. At N1, she had turned an old button factory into one of London’s most innovative and inspirational garden centres. Now, with the full support of her team, she was determined to let her passion and expertise transform another London site into a life enhancing urban space.

When starting N1, Beryl had been guided by her vision of a new kind of garden centre. An urban garden centre with quality plants, grown by specialist English growers, and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Now she was going to let that vision guide her again.
Five years on W6 has established itself as an outstanding garden centre in its strive for excellence, and in 2017 W6 was awarded best boutique garden centre at the industry’s Garden Retail Awards.

Connecting to the urban gardening movement, W6, like N1, continues to attract innovative suppliers within horticulture, design and home accessories, making urban gardening accessible and truly inspirational to both the knowledgeable and the beginner gardener alike.

Staying true to Beryl’s vision, W6 is a place where urban gardening is made possible every day, through passion and expertise.
