Top 5 garden centres in Maidstone26 October 2017
Maidstone is a borough surrounded with golf courts, water sport centres, castles, vineyards, wineries and lovely countryside locations and villages. Historically seen, Maidstone was the centre of the agricultural county of Kent, in result of having the river Medway running through and utilising this as carrier for trade. While also being a part of Kent, otherwise known as the Garden of England, because of its relative affluence of fruit-growing and hop gardens, we can simply not ignore the signals telling us that Mainstone must have quite some green-fingered inhabitants. Subsequently, it was time to create a top 5 of garden centres in Maidstone:
Wood Cottage Nursery
Otherwise known as Roger King Plant Nursery, Wood Cottage Nursery is an independent nursery in Nettlestead Green, fully stocked throughout the whole year by growing an extensive range of 30 thousand hardy plants. Offering alpines, bamboo, clematis, climbers, grasses, perennials, shrubs and trees, there is always something that will suit your garden or house! Not that payments can only be done by cash or cheques.
In Sutton Valence, you’ll find Warmlake Nurseries where the service is excellent, prices are very reasonable and quality is guaranteed if we may believe the reviews that have been written by previous customers. Warmlake Nurseries is open from Monday to Saturday between 09.00 and 17.00 and on Sunday from 10.00 to 16.00, check it out!
Potted Garden Nursery
The Potted Garden Nursery offers, among others, shrubs, climbers, fruit, herbaceous perennials, bamboos and much more. While having an extensive product range all year long, you can also find seasonal products such as Christmas trees, vegetables and herbs. The best thing about The Potted Garden? Its online plant chooser!
Notcutts Garden Centre-Maidstone
Notcutts Garden Centre-Maidstone also opens seven days a week and can be found at bit North from the centre of Maidstone. Unlike the above stated nurseries, Notcutts has more to offer when it comes to garden furniture, outdoor living and home and giftware and can therefore not be left out. Also unlike the previous mentioned, Notcutts is a chain rather than an independent company, Notcutts does have the right (extra) services to offer.
Homewood Orchard Garden Centre
Offering mostly bedding plants, compost and turf, hanging baskets, garden furniture and logs and coal, Homewood Orchard Garden Centre established over 15 years ago as a family run business to provide good and personal service. As such, the expert staff are on hand to create bespoke hanging baskets, for example. Homewood is also a good place to go to when searching for the right Christmas tree and accessories.
