Woodland Walk Garden Centre

Stone Cross Garden Centre are now, and have always been, an inventive independent centre where you can buy most things that you require for your garden. We excel at having an extensive knowledge of plants, with the back up to support our plant sales. We are happy to help with all garden queries, and our trained staff are on hand to give advice. The garden centre is situated on 13 acres of land which has many open areas and also has a ancient woodland. In recent years we have managed and cultivated the woodland and created a Woodland walk which can be enjoyed by all the family. In the spring the floor is covered with bluebells making this a spectacular walk. Throughout the year different areas have been developed to produce colour all year round. The woodland is also home to lots of rare animals and birds. There is an area especially devoted to butterflies. The walk is a ideal place to relax and enjoy nature in its original form. At Stone Cross Nurseries we work alongside the community in a number of areas. There are a number of allotments on the site, a number of football pitches and training pitches which are used by a local youth team. There is also a Golf Academy on the side which has its own putting green, chipping area and driving range. Stone Cross Garden Centre hosts a number of events throughout the year ranging from beer festival to classic car and steam rallies. Wedding receptions and celebrations are also held here making use of the event room and outdoor purpose built stage and outdoor bar area. The event field has been hired privately and can be used for a number of different purposes. At Stone Cross Florist, we provide a wide choice of cut-flowers sold by the stem or arranged beautifully in a hand tied bouquet or foam arrangement. We are available for gifts on special occasions such as Births, Birthdays and Anniversaries as well as the traditional occasions of Christmas, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. We offer both traditional and modern designs to suit any style in mind. Whatever your cut-flower requirements, our florist is happy to help as she has many years experience in both traditional and modern designs, enabling her to create your perfect arrangement. We specialise in weddings and funerals, and we will sit down over a cup of coffee to discuss your needs in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. At Stone Cross Garden Centre, we pride ourselves on the range of plants we can supply and the advice we are able to give to support your purchase. Each section of the centre has staff dedicated to their specialist gardening area who are available to consult, before and after, you make any selections. We are also happy to help with garden problems like pests, diseases, weed control and cultivation advice to enable you to get the best from gardening. In the centre we have a wide range of plants including shrubs, roses, trees, fruit trees, alpines, soft fruit, house plants, bedding plants, herbs, clematis and climbing plants, hedging, herbaceous, ferns, grasses and bamboos, hardy palms, aquatic plants, azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias and hydrangeas.

Free Woodland Walks The Woodlands have dominated Trentham for over 1000 years Customer Notice – Monument Wood Restoration Work As part of the agreed long term conservation plans for the estate, we will be clearing the trees from around the stone monument of the first Duke of Sutherland to reveal the lost panoramic views across the estate and surrounding countryside from the hill top. The restoration will also thin the surrounding woodland (some of which was inappropriately planted after the dramatic woodland fire in 1976) to better recreate the more open “acidic” grassland and “wood pasture” of the 18th and 19th Century. Our long term management vision is to introduce grazing. The remaining Rhododendron ponticum (largely cleared last winter) will be removed and treated to prevent this re-establishing. The Monument In 1833 George Granville 2nd, embarked on an extensive rebuilding project on the estate. This began the era that created Trentham in the way you see it today. He commissioned the statue of the 1st Duke of Sutherland which crowns Monument Hill, in July 1833. The statue was completed in 1835. Enjoy the tranquillity of acres of free parkland and woodland to a more strenuous climb up to the monument at the south entrance of the estate. If you’re feeling energetic, take a walk up Monument Hill and enjoy spectacular views of Trentham and beyond! Take a look at the video walk around Trentham with Walks Britain, or join us over on facebook and see the Woodland Walks album. The parts of the woodland which are free to enter are The Kings Wood, The Monument, The Oaks and The Parkland Walks. All the walks are clearly signposted and areas of interest are highlighted, to ensure you don’t miss a thing. The public use of the Woodland Walks is encouraged, but we politely remind guests that this is a private estate and we reserve the right to refuse admission or to remove from the estate any person whose behaviour is inappropriate. North Park Wood & Heathland Restoration Project A major landscape restoration of historic parkland is now in progress at the North of the estate.
