REVIEW RESULTS FOR LADY GREEN GARDEN CENTRE

Lady Green Garden Centre is one of our favourites and has always scored highly when we have reviewed it. This latest review confirms that it stands head and shoulders above most of the large garden centres in the UK.

THE OUTSIDE AREA
The designers of the the outside plants area should be highly commended for creating a huge space which not only houses a massive selection of plants but also provides a very unusual and attractive setting for them. Rather than go for boring long lines of plants they have created a living garden with the plants for sale being attractively displayed. Several ponds, fountains, centre pieces and bridges all go together to create an area that entices you wander around.

The area is large with the main pathways being solidly paved and kept very clear. Some of the minor paths are formed from reasonably solid gravel. Allowing for the meandering nature of the paths this is still an easy garden centre to navigate with wheelchair users not having any problem.

There is a small covered area housing tender plants and a circular path around the main garden centre being covered. Signs are clear and bold and large plant groups are arranged in alphabetical order.

THE PLANTS
All the plants we examined were in good condition and attractively displayed. They do have some specialist areas including clematis, conifers, grasses, herbaceous plants and alpines to name but a few. The average gardener will find exactly the plants he or she wants at Lady Green Garden centre in addition to many more unusual plants. Hardy plants come with a five year guarantee.

As far as prices go a list of common items follows. Compost 56 litre bag at 4.99 or three for 10, clematis from 12.99, roses from 8.99, typical shrub (e.g. potentilla) from 8.99, Miracle Gro 1kg is 4.99, Tomorite 1 litre is 4.49 or two for 8, economy Yeoman spade or fork is 12.99 and they also sell stainless versions at 22.99.

INSIDE LADY GREEN GARDEN CENTRE
The interior sales area is large and stocks everything you would expect of a modern garden centre. Gardeners are well catered for and there are lots of non-gardening items including cards, gifts,  clothing, indoor, conservatory and outdoor furniture. books, a huge range of gifts and lots more.

In common with the outside area lots of thought and effort has been input to the design of the indoor area and it has paid off handsomely. Although this is a thoroughly modern store it also has a very pleasant, almost homely atmosphere to it. In our eyes it wins hands down when compared to the many slick, ultra-modern sales area of comparable garden centres.

DISABLED ACCESS
Disabled access is good all round both inside and outside. Wheel chairs are available at the entrance.

OTHER STUFF
Car park - On flat and level ground near the store entrance. An overflow area is also available.
Pet Centre - We didn't see any although there was a full range of bird care feeds and accessories.
Aquatics - We didn't see any.
Water Features - Yes, there was a good range of water features which were well displayed.
Sheds and Greenhouses - Yes, an especially good range of sheds and garden buildings of all sizes.
Toilets - Clean and functional.
Other - None.

4 star rating 29 May 2012 Comment From: Jan
This is a beautiful garden centre, not only are the plants in fantastic condition but they are displayed so well. The staff are very helpful as well, I asked someone who was called Pete if a plant was OK under my tree - he told me lots about plants under trees. I was really happy with his advice. Well recommended garden centre.

5 star rating 28 January 2013 Comment From: Cath Pye
I take my parents quite frequently to the garden centre and they love it. The gardens are tranquil and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. We always end up in the cafe which is lovely and the food is gorgeous.
