Top 5 garden centres in London21 September 2017
Are you looking for a garden centre in London? We’ve selected 5 garden centres in London that you might want to visit! While the city is mostly known as a busy tourist destination with lots of things to do, gardening is certainly a possibility too! Here are our top picks of garden centres within London:
Sunshine Garden Centre
After winning the Garden Centre Association awards for Garden Centre, Garden Products Retailer and Best Customer Service of the year, there is no need to say more… We do, however, as you’ll also need to know that the Sunshine Garden Centre has a wide range of plants and bulbs , cultivation products, garden furniture, lifestyle products and very kind and knowledgeable staff! Don’t skip the café while you’re there!
Growing Concern Garden Centre
Between Victoria and Queen Elizabeth Park, you’ll find Growing concern, a garden centre set up by the local resident gardening club keen to improve the green environment. Growing Concern is therefore not only a garden centre, but also the name of a group of community gardeners for which we believe Growing Concern deserves a second place in this top 5. Moreover, their offer exists out of a wide range of seasonal and unusual plants as well as structural plants including exotics, herbs and annuals.
The Chelsea Gardener
Looking for inspiring and innovative ideas? Then head to the Chelsea Gardener! Focusing on outdoor spaces the centre has a big variety of garden essentials, plants, pots, gifts, decorations and outdoor furniture. Besides that, they offer full landscaping services. Oh, and we also fell in love with the three venues they provide. So if you were planning a special occasion, this should be another reason for you to take a visit!
Hortus Blackheath, a window into a world of gardens. Why? Because this centre is a destination in its own right with a few acres to display the offer on. With plants, furniture, barbecues, own gardening tools and year of experience and the willingness to share knowledge, there are enough reasons for Hortus Blackheath to be visited.
Dig This Nursery
Dig This Nursery is a family business that started in 2008 with growing plants, shrubs, trees, vegetables and herbs. Being big fans of tomatoes, the family created their own ‘Tomato World’ where you could find 50 different types of tomatoes and attend the ‘Tomato Festival’ twice a year. Today, Puzzle Organico is a place where you can still find a wide range or plants and seeds, as well as a Deli section.
