We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. The Garden Centre always has a good selection of shrubs and plants which are not commonly found elsewhere, together with a wide range of the more commonly sought after plants. Established for over 50 years, the Garden Centre has recently been redeveloped to a high standard. Our shop contains the largest selection of seeds and bulbs for miles around, together with garden chemicals, tools, garden furniture and many other goods. Outside we stock peat-based and peat-free composts, paving, fencing, timber decking, garden buildings and greenhouses, and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments. Our aquatics centre has a good reputation for their excellent quality tropical, marine and cold water fish. The Gardeners' Retreat, our coffee shop/restaurant, serves fresh home cooked food and is an excellent way to round off any visit to the Garden Centre.
Solar Lighting in the garden makes sense, as it eliminates the need for wiring, uses renewable energy and with the advanced technology now available is very reliable and efficient.
The solar lighting range we stock comes from a company founded in 2003 and based in Abingdon called Smart Garden Products and their lights are appropriately named Smart Solar. In 2015 they launched a new range of Super Bright Solar lights which are much brighter than regular solar lights, typically between 5 and 500 times brighter. The brightness of each design of light is marked on the packaging and this varies from 3 to 1,000 lumens.
They have an extensive range of designs, from the more conventional to ones which could be termed as 'wacky' - owls and cats with glowing eyes or flowers which light up in the dark. They also have string lights, so if you wish to illuminate your garden in any way it is well worth looking at this range.
