Top 5 garden centres in Cardiff18 August 2017
As the capital of Wales, Cardiff is emerging as one of Britain’s top urban centres. With a mix of old and modern architecture, Cardiff seems to be full of surprises. While rugby once was the major attraction of the city, the pubs, bars and live music venues have made it a lively destination for the young crowd. This while families are also attracted to the city due to the surrounding valleys, castles, monuments and the coastline. Cardiff is the definition of the mix between urban and nature. Hence, we believe it might come in useful to have a top 5 of garden centres in Cardiff!
With two locations, in Radyr and Wenvoe, Pugh’s once began with selling plants in containers in the 1970’s. While this was the time that people started recognising gardening as a recreational activity rather than just an occupation to grow their own foods, Pugh’s grew and eventually became a garden centre offering a unique shopping experience. With three generations involved, Pugh believes it’s success lies in the fact that it’s a family run business with extensive knowledge to provide customers with information.
