Such a gorgeous garden center, they have a really cute section for ferns and prehistoric looking plants with some toy dinosaurs - very helpful for keeping kids entertained. Great houseplants, my Pilea is ding really well (photo attached). Also have really nice cards - I often pop in there rather than a card shop for birthday and special occasions because they are so nice.

Really cute little garden centre, with a good array of indoor and outdoor plants, nicely separated into different sections such as suitable for shaded or non shaded environments. Also offer free pallets if you looking to pick some of those up to create your own garden furniture as we are.

I have been using this garden centre, amongst others, for over 20 years. I think this is my favourite, apart perhaps from Wisley, but this is much more personal and easy to negotiate! The staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The plants are in good condition and, for its size, there is a good selection to choose from.
