About Us

Established in 1986 in the heart of leafy Crystal Palace, The Secret Garden started life as a bare patch of land which was used as a building site for the supermarket, now a Sainsburys, next door. Some 30 years on, we are still going strong.

Roger and the team have spent many years making the centre an inspirational visit for customers. The garden centre has been transformed from bare earth to an oasis of green. Around the garden centre you will see many mature trees, roses and climbers as well as water features and interesting planting. Our knowledgeable staff are always on hand to give good practical gardening advice.

You may also see Cyril, our resident hound, sleeping in front of the entrance or trying to get your lunch from your shopping bags. Cyril is very friendly and loves all the attention he gets from customers. We pride ourselves on stocking plants of great quality and using the best of British-grown plants  where possible.

Herbs grown in Surrey, perennials from Essex, Christmas trees from Kent and much more.
