PLANTS AT AYLETT NURSERIES

SIZE: Very large

PLANT SELECTION: 4.5 star ratingA very large choice of plants, shrubs and trees, if you can't find what you want here then it must indeed be rare. The display and choice of bedding plants, hanging baskets and plants from April to June is an event in itself, truly impressive. They also specialise in dahlias and are well renowned for this. All plants look to be in excellent condition.

LAYOUT: 3.5 starsLacks any real finesse but very functional. The signs and layout are very practical and easy to find particular plants

VALUE FOR MONEY: 3.5 starsSlightly better than average.

CHRISTMAS AT AYLETT NURSERIES

For Christmas opening times see the opening hours section above here.

In previous years there has been no Father Christmas for the kids at Aylett Nurseries. They do gear up up for Christmas in October / November though and sell an extensive range of Christmas decorations and gifts. The store is decorated in a festive manner with lots of lights.

Synthetic Christmas trees are in abundance but the real star of the show is the extensive range of real trees of all varieties and sizes.
