Many of the garden centres in Coventry started as nurseries and have gone on to develop into fully-fledged garden centres. Coventry isn't a county but it is a metropolitan authority. Situated in the heart of the West Midlands it has a long tradition of independent garden centres.

In general, many of the larger garden centres in this area have stayed true to their roots and still produce many of their own shrubs and plants, more so compared to many other parts of the UK.

Northern Polytunnels

This has the benefit that you know the origins of the plants and also that many are not just imports from Holland or other other parts of the world. The reviews below are created as a a result of a visit or a telephone conversation.
