We have roses for Birthdays, Weddings, Engagements, New Baby Gifts, House Warming, Retirement and Remembrance, and not forgetting Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day and Father’s Day roses.

“Winners of the Greatest Garden Centre Team (mid-sized) 2011 and no wonder,” says Anna. “Charlie Groves is the sixth generation to run this brilliant family business. Compost, seeds, chicken feed, turf, roses, water features, pots, bedding plants – everything you’d expect in a local garden centre, but with the best help and service you’ll find.”

David Barnes built Dobbies into the biggest garden centre chain in Scotland until in 2007, he sold out to Tesco, says Anna. “Dobbies centres vary in quality but this is a good one with a big garden buildings centre.”

Standing on an acre of land, the oldest of Chelsea’s nurseries occupies a site used for hundreds of years as a thriving garden, says Dorothy. “Today it offers a calm and slightly quirky green oasis at the end of the bustling King’s Road in London. Pick your way through the eclectic mix of plants and pots artfully arranged around the meandering pathways, making it more like a visit to a secret garden than a walk through a garden centre. Indoor and outdoor plants fight for space with garden statuary, planters, benches and even the odd gazebo.”
This family-run group of garden centres covers five retail sites in Kent and the South-East, and specialises in growing its own stock. So proud are they of the provenance of the plants that a three-year guarantee is offered, says Anna Rose.
“This garden centre group encompasses 128 individually branded garden centres around the country, including this one, Wyvale and Blooms of Bressingham,” says Anna Rose. The website has a search engine to find your local garden centres, as well as advice, online ordering and a plant-finding service.
“A place that welcomes both me and my pooch – perfect,” says Dorothy. “Emcy’s is a rare find: a large, independent garden centre with every conceivable plant and garden accoutrement; staff who go out of their way to make your visit a memorable one; and most importantly, not happy with the price? They’re ready to listen to reasonable offers.” The grow your own page on its website offering advice and gardening tips is worth keeping an eye on for sensible, monthly updates.
As the largest historic botanic garden in Cornwall, the privately owned Tregothnan Estate, although not strictly a garden centre, deserves a mention, says Dorothy. “Its range of plants, many of which are rare, is grown on the estate and is continuously being extended to meet the demand for locally grown, high quality British plants and there is expert advice and guidance over the phone or by email.” Visit by appointment only.
This is an emporium of all things garden-related, including upmarket furniture, accessories and, of course, plants, says Anna Rose. It often receives the Garden Centre of Excellence award, plus it hosts a regular farmer’s market and has a fantastic locally sourced food shop and café.
“A garden shop has recently opened at Rowallane, which has got to be great news given that this is a plantsman’s garden,” says Victoria. “It was created by the Rev John Moore in the 1860s and is now run by the National Trust. It is particularly famous for its blue Himalayan poppies, the Victorian walled garden and the rock garden wood.
Opened in 2011, Ashford is a striking wooden building featuring a state of the art Farm Foodhall and restaurant. With a fantastic range of plants and staff on hand with excellent gardening advice, the garden centre also features an enclosed woodland play area for children of all ages featuring natural species of flowers and fungi and all kinds of wildlife.
“Superb quality, as you’d expect from the Royal Horticultural Society’s own garden centre, with the emphasis firmly on plants rather than seasonal tat,” says Anna. “Magnificent magnolias and fabulous ferns – choose from 9,000 different delights and next door is the best gardening bookstore in the world.”
As with all the RHS gardens, a visit to Rosemoor is a fantastic day out, says Anna Rose. “The extensive gardens are backed up by a packed plant centre, filled with the best the garden has to offer and manned by knowledgeable, helpful staff.”
“The restaurant is renowned, with devotees making regular detours for the delicious home grown and produced food,” says Dorothy. “They’ll also tell you that their seed potatoes are beyond compare and they are the only place locally to buy your vegetable plants. A family-owned and run garden centre that delivers on every front.”
“This charming garden centre tucked away in West Dulwich may be small, but the plants are well chosen, the staff extremely helpful, and the collection of gifts and gardeners’ accessories delightful,” says Anna Rose. “Also, if you sign up to the mailing list, a regular newsletter of inspiring hints arrives in your inbox.”
“My local must get a mention for its sheer ability to produce exactly what I am looking for whenever I’m looking for it,” says Dorothy. “And I can be a tricky customer.” Nestled on the northern tip of Wandsworth Common, you’ll find every conceivable container, plant, plant accessory, gardening tool, gardening gift and more in this well laid-out garden centre. And if you can’t find it, helpful staff will make sure they bend over backwards to get it for you.
“Founded in the 1930s as a school of horticulture for ladies, the ornamental gardens are well worth a look before perusing the delights of the attached garden centre,” says Anna Rose. It is particularly good for alpines, and most of the plants on sale are grown on site.
Just off the M1, this family-owned independent nursery is one of the largest in Yorkshire. “The setting alone makes shopping here a pleasure, with the extensive gardens of Wentworth Woodhouse as a backdrop,” says Dorothy. “The garden centre is constructed in the former Kitchen, Italian and Japanese gardens of the estate. Wentworth focuses on plants – good quality at affordable prices – and the well informed staff support this philosophy.”
“Wonderful, inspiring gardens laid out in the 1920s and taking advantage of the mild maritime climate,” says Victoria. “The garden centre sells plants grown at Mount Stewart and on peat-free compost.” This is a National Trust property so a good place for a day out with a restaurant, shop and guided tours.
