Canterbury Chartham belongs to Wyevale Garden Centres and it follows the layout of their similar medium to large garden centres. The paths are straight and wide making access easy but not providing a particularly interesting area for plant shopping. It's all kept neat and tidy though and the signs are OK for this size of harden centre.
Plants are all in good condition and watered sufficiently. Hardy plants come with a five year hardy plant guarantee. The range of plants covers all the common types and varieties with no particular specialism.
Inside the sell all the essential gardening accessories plus a range of gifts, cards, garden and conservatory furniture and other non-gardening goods. An interesting development is the Pilgrims Hospices charity shop which first opened in August 2012. Similar to other charity shops the sell general bric a brac, books, cds, videos and lots of clothes at knock-down prices. It seems that Canterbury Chartham garden centre have also been kind enough to allow them storage space. A very commendable spirit and enterprise by the garden centre.
Another outlet on site worthy of note is Ark Aquatics, a large shop which sells a comprehensive range of accessories and live fish at very competitive prices. They have over 500 aquariums making them the largest aquatics outlet for many miles around.
A recent development is the child's play area, suitable for up to 8 years old, which is observable from the cafe. The cost is £1.50 per child and they also accept bookings for children's parties.
