Garden centres are offering a bewildering choice of membership clubs and cards nowadays with an equally confusing set of benefits and rewards when you use them.

Our comparison chart below will clear the muddy waters somewhat with a simple to understand comparison of the key benefits each offers and how much, if anything, they charge for joining. Some clubs offer real long term benefits, some offer immediate rewards, read on for the full details.


Before reading the comparison chart below it's important to understand that as well as the key benefits each club card offers they also offer once only benefits for example on joining the club. In order to simplify matters we have limited our review to the key benefits unless there are particular reasons to do otherwise. All garden centres / groups mentioned below can be clicked on and you will be taken automatically to their club membership page for more details and to sign up if applicable.

Apologies to all readers, mobile phone readers especially, the amount of information is so large that you will need to scroll on your screen to see it all. It's well worth the effort though!

We have organised the comparison chart into three sections as follows:

  • The names of the larger multi-site garden centres where each site participates in the same club card scheme.
     
  • Garden centres which are in the top ten largest (by turnover) UK garden centres.
     
  • Remaining garden centres covered so far in alphabetic order. This list is almost random according to our review and update procedures. If you wish details of your garden centre to be included in this section immediately, see the end of this article for details or click here to go there now.

Any offers below which we feel are especially worthwhile are highlighted in red. If you shop regularly at the same garden centre / chain then of course, all discounts will be worthwhile.
