Leicestershire is right in the centre of England and is one of the many English counties which has no borders on the sea.

There's lots to do in Leicestershire, as well as garden centres, including the amazing Space Centre. Possibly best known as the home of Melton Mowbray pork pies. Stilton cheese must come a close second!

Leicestershire is also home to one of the most respected Midlands garden centres, Woodlands Garden Centre.

The foxglove is the county flower of Leicestershire, one of the kings of the perennials. Leicester is the capital city of Leicestershire and quite rightly it hosts many of the area's large garden centres. But don't be fooled though, there are lots of other large and small garden centres in the outlying areas of Leicestershire. Our list below includes Rutland as well as Leicestershire.
