On the pricey side, but not unexpectedly so.MARCIAMARCIA ★★★★★ A lovely garden centre. Staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. Their products are varied and top notchHeather B.Heather B. ★★★★★ We had the most wonderful Christmas Tree buying experience here last Saturday. We casually rolled in at 17.55 not realising they were about to close. A lovely man greeted us as though he had all the time in the world and asked us what we were looking for and then he proceeded to unwrap the most beautiful and perfect Christmas tree. I have never before bought the first tree I’ve seen so this was quite something in itself. He didn’t rush us, he chatted, he showed my daughter the netting machine for the trees, shared a joke with us on the way out all in a very charming and softly spoken manner. When we got back to our car we all said we felt like we had just met Father Christmas and what a truly magical experience it was. I hope he’ll be there again next year! 🌲🎄John Stuart D.John Stuart D. ★★★★★ A real secret but one of the best garden centres in LondonLisa G.Lisa G. ★★★★★ Amazing selection of beautiful rosesMelissa Spinach H.Melissa Spinach H. ★★★★★ such a wonderful place with wonderful staff...Michele G.Michele G. ★★★★★ Friendly staff with great expertise.
