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.”

“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.

“London’s oldest, and swankiest, garden centre,” says Anna. “Garden design, landscaping, management, they do it all. Vintage furniture, stylish pots and plants. At a price.”

“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.”

“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.

“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.”

“Set up by the charismatic Michael Loftus, who used to own Neals Yard wholefoods shop in Covent Garden,” says Anna. “His aim was to have plants so beautiful and so beautifully grown (iris are a speciality) that customers would drive hundreds of miles out of their way to buy them. And they do.”

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.”

When Sue Beesley won BBC Gardener of the Year in 2006, it gave her the confidence to run her own nursery, says Victoria. “Open from April to September, the gardens, which run alongside the Trent and Mersey canal towpath, boast a potager, a grasses garden and orchard while the nursery is crammed with locally grown plants, many of which have been propagated by Sue herself.” Tearoom and parking.

Owned by landscape designer Peter Stott, the garden at Larch Cottage is an inspiration, while the nursery offers the means to replicate its charm, says Anna Rose. Anna Pavord calls it a place of pilgrimmage for plantaholics who love rare and unusual shrubs, trees, dwarf conifers and Japanese maples.

“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.”

Expansive is the feeling you get from Hyde Hall from the moment you pull up in the newly landscaped car park, says Dorothy. Set atop a hill, the house and gardens are very exposed and the planting is carefully selected to ensure that the “right plant right place” principles are applied and the plants thrive. Using this experience, the nursery is stocked with an excellent selection of high-quality plants suitable for drier, poorer soils. “Top it all with a delicious light lunch or tea in the tea garden and make it a day out.”

“The nursery attached to this fabulous garden – the legacy of the late, great Christopher Lloyd – offers a chance to recreate some of Great Dixter’s exciting plant schemes,” says Anna Rose. “It’s particularly good for unusual herbaceous plants and a wide variety of clematis. There is also a lovely little cafe and gift shop.”

“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.
