An abandoned gardening centre on a busy street corner. First spotted this one in the summer of 2011, so has it has been empty and derelict for at least a few years. Neat visuals here in that plants inside the greenhouses have reversed the reclamation of nature that we usually see. Instead of surrounding growth reaching up and swallowing this abandoned location, the growth is coming from inside the location itself, reaching out of every broken hole.

There is a large greenhouse 100 m to the northeast that may still be part of the property, but the retail portion and the immediately attached greenhouse(s) is gone.

It's demolished now?! That's quite a shame. I've put a new album up.

Tomo, any pics? Always nice to add more to demolished locations.

Visited back in March, amazing photo spot. Even during winter it was nice and warm indoors in the parts where the roof was still in tact.
