REVIEW RESULTS - WEBBS OF WYCHBOLD
THE PLANT SALES AREA
The outdoor area is well laid out and has just enough variety in the
layout to stop it being boring. This is a large area and the paths
are wide and well spread out, certainly wide enough for wheelchairs
to access all areas. The paths were clear with no hosepipes or other
obstacles to make access easy.
Covering over the area to protect from rain has been done well.
There is about 20% completely covered but in addition the pathways
have been covered as well, Aside from areas which are completely
covered this combination gives the best protection from rain.
There are plenty of meaningful signs around the outside area at
Webbs, large enough to be clearly seen and help you locate the
various plant groups. The major grouping of shrubs was arranged in
alphabetic order. Plenty of staff were in the area to help answer
questions and they did this very knowledgeably. The central help
desk was large and well equipped with lots of informative books,
leaflets and posters.
THE PLANTS AT WEBBS OF WYCHBOLD
We examined the plants for sale at Webbs of Wychbold and found them
to be in tip top condition, well watered, well pruned and clear of
Prices were variable, for example clematis started at £7.99 but many
were in the £16 to £19 price bracket. So they were reasonable
starting prices but the top prices were a little higher than normal.
Roses start ant £7.49 and a typical shrub (potentilla in this case)
is priced at £8.49.
The range of plants was large even for a garden centre of this size
so you will find not only the plants you want but a selection of
alternatives. Particularly impressive was the large range of
ornamental trees for sale at Webbs and a good selection of fruit
If shade is a problem in your garden then Webbs of Wychbold have the
solution. A special area is set aside for shade loving plants, which
is protected from harsh sunlight. Seasonal plants are well
represented in their own covered area although that particular area
has rather annoying piped music in it. When that stops they announce
a special offer or similar. It all irritated us slightly.
To wrap it all up, Webbs show great confidence in their plants by
offering a five year guarantee on all their hardy plants. A n
unbeaten guarantee in the garden centre world as far as we know.
INSIDE WEBBS OF WYCHBOLD
The main interior sales area is huge and this allows them
stock a vast amount of non-gardening goods as well as gardening
accessories. For the gardener everything is here under one roof
albeit at rather inflated prices. Pesticides, tools, garden tools,
composts and more. Webbs also have a larger than normal section
devoted to solar lighting for the garden.
For the non-gardening shopper there are shoes, clothes, gifts,
books, indoor and outdoor furniture, children's toys, Toy Box store,
Hobbycraft store to name a few. Webbs of Wychbold is really a small
department store and a shopping destination in its own right.
This is not the store to visit though if you are looking for a
bargain, it's much more about convenience and shopping in a pleasant
environment. For those shoppers who run short of cash there is a
cash withdrawal machine near the entrance.
For the bird lover Webbs of Wychbold is the destination. A part of
the store is devoted to bird foods of every type and bird feeders.
If you can't find it here you are unlikely to find it anywhere! Bird
food is definitely an up and coming niche market and Webbs are
taking full advantage of it.
Houseplants are well displayed and there are lots of them. Prices
tended to slightly higher compared to other garden centres. The
quality of the plants was good.
Webbs have their own club card scheme with various benefits for
their members. Details of the club and a comparison with the clubs
of other garden centres can be found by
