PLANTS DISPLAY AREA AT BLACKDOWN GARDEN CENTRE
Entrance to Blackdown Garden Centre

We expected Blackdown to be a medium garden centre but in reality it is definitely on the large size. The plants display area consists of a covered area and an area open to the elements. The covered area is thoughtfully laid out and very attractive.

The open are is fully paved in all areas with wide paths that are easy to get round. We were particularly impressed with how clean and free-from obstructions the whole area was.

The plants are in small bays with trellis backing which gives the area a well-designed look. There were clear overhead signs to the various areas of the garden centre and informative individual plant signs. The shrubs were in alphabetic order.

Lots of plants were on display and it's very likely that you will find the plants you want amongst them. If you are looking for fruit trees then you will be spoilt for choice, the sheer number of trees is impressive. Shade loving plants have their own display area which is lightly covered to prevent too much sunlight reaching them. All the plants looked healthy and in good condition.

OUR VIDEO OF THE PLANTS SALES AREA AT BLACKDOWN GARDEN CENTRE

INTERIOR SALES AREA
This sales area is similar to many large garden centres and it stocks a full choice of pesticides, plant foods, tools and other gardening accessories. As far as other shopping goes they have a pet centre which stocks feeds and accessories although no live pets.

Maidenhead Aquatics have a large outlet here and it is up to the normal high standards. In other areas of the store there are books, gifts, shoes, barbecues, garden furniture (hardwood, softwood and metal), greetings cards and lots more.

PRICES
Prices are a little on the low side at Blackdown Garden Centre. Example prices are 50 litres of Levingtons multi-purpose at two for 10, 1litre Tomorite at 3.99, roses start at 7.99 and  potentillas from 6.49.

They currently have no club / reward membership scheme at this garden centre.

CAFE
Cafe food at Blackdown Garden Centre The cafe is very pleasantly decorated with brick walls and very large windows to two sides giving it a light and airy atmosphere. Lots of food is on offer including hot full meals, snack meals, breakfasts, salads, coffees, teas and cakes.

We sampled ham salad and it was delicious. The ham was especially good and the salad crisp with a tasty coleslaw topping.
