Top 5 garden centres in Aberdeen5 October 2017
Aberdeen is Scotland’s third most populous city and mostly known for being the oil capital of the world, the energy capital of the world and the granite city. Besides that, Aberdeen attracts many visitors with its 300 castles, many golf courses and 165 miles of coast. More interesting for us though, is that Aberdeen has won the Britain in Bloom competition ten times, which was record-breaking. The Britain in Bloom competition is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society and the largest horticultural campaign in the United Kingdom. We can assume, therefore, that Aberdeen is quite green-fingered. As such, here are our top 5 garden centres in Aberdeen!
Cove Bay Nurseries
Every Friday, you can find Cove Bay Nurseries at the Green Market in Aberdeen. Even though we cannot say that its a garden centre that can be visited on a daily basis, the reviews on our website a reason enough for Cove Bay Nurseries to be the first to mention in this top 5! Also, there is a reason for this nurseries to have contracts with local authorities to provide hanging baskets and window boxes for city wide displays.. Definitely worth a visit on Friday’s between 8 AM and 3 PM!
Ben Reid & Co
Ben Reid & Co claims to be run for gardeners but also by gardeners. Which shows as reviews suggest that the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The bad news is that this garden centre doesn’t have a tea room, gift shop or patio furniture. However, this enables the staff to concentrate on the plants, shrubs, fruit bushes, seeds, bulbs, compost, and their service. Besides that, Ben Reid & Co is open every day!
Dobbies Garden World Aberdeen
On the contrary of the above, Dobbies Garden World Aberdeen has everything. Open every day of the week between 9 am and 6 pm, you can go to Dobbies for aquatics, garden furniture, books, the butcher, a car wash, clothing, a pet shop, food hall, indoor furniture, restaurant and toys. Besides that, Dobbies offers a number of services that might come in useful, such as a free planting service and a carry to car service.
Kellockbank Country Emporium
Kellockbank Country Emporium offers a wide range of quality plants, gardening tools and accessories. But also for indoor and outdoor living, such as clothing and furniture, Kellockbank Country Emporium garden centre has enough to choose from! Also open seven days a week, the garden centre also hosts a coffee shop with the freshest of produce, daily specials and providing deliveries.
Parkhill Nurseries & Garden Centre
Recently nominated for the Scottish Enterprise Awards 2017, Parkhill Nurseries and Garden Centre definitely deserves a spot in this list too! When it comes to gardening, you can find vegetable plants, bulbs, flowers, trees and shrubs, architecture, tools and equipment, ornaments, wildlife products, compost and treatments and alpines and heathers. That is not everything though, as the garden centre also hosts an extensive gift department and a coffee shop with a fabulous menu!
