Forest Garden Centre has a very well kept plants area which is thoughtfully designed and has a good choice of plants, more than enough for the average gardener. The paths are on solid ground and they are wide enough to easily get around.
They stock seasonal bedding plants, planted hanging baskets, shrubs, ornamental and fruit trees. The normal range of composts is available, paving and fencing alongside a large selection of pots and planters. Water features are also on display with many working near the garden buildings display.
The interior sales space has all you would expect from a modern, medium-sized garden centre and it is very tastefully laid out. Gifts, a large section dedicated to garden furniture, clothing and cookware all feature prominently. Prices do tend to be on the high side. Both the inside and outside sales areas are wheelchair friendly.
Other garden centres nearby include Swarkestone Nursery, a family run plants nursery / garden centre with a very popular cafe, Lanes Garden Centre which is really and open farm which sells seasonal plants and the Blue Diamond Derby Garden Centre.
