We are pleased to announce our garden centres are now open with social distancing measures in place so you can shop safely.

We are reducing the numbers of shoppers in our centres at any one time and have extended our opening hours to give you more time to visit.

We have also introduced Click and Collect, to be serviced outside the centres, for those who still need to limit contact. We will endeavour to fulfil orders within 3 working days. Unfortunately this service is not currently available at Forest Lodge.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9:00am - 7:00pm, Saturday 9:00am - 6:00pm (Forest Lodge closes at 5:30pm), Sunday 10:30am - 4:30pm (doors open at 10:00am for viewing)

This was our first venture out since lockdown and we were really impressed with the measures in place, and have been telling family and friends who I know are keen to get to a garden centre! Great work!

Have you still got the old plant pot recycling bin outside? I have quite a few in my shed to get rid of

Popped up yesterday and was really impressed with the measures which were clear and well done. Staff were really helpful and positive too. 👍🏻

Visited last week very well organised, beautiful plants well worth the visit.

If you made masks mandatory in store. More would visit 🌸

Went on Friday and the measures in place were first class.

Visited the other day. All very well organised. 👏

Feels very safe and that's fundamental.

You’re doing a great job 👍🏼

Hi, we are doing exactly the same as the supermarkets limiting numbers in the centre at any one time and asking customers to only touch what they wish to buy. (This sign was actually right in front of that vase with the face on it. I moved it to take the photo.)

It all looks lovely but will there be regular wiping down of products that people have been browsing or will you have a member of staff standing there to make sure people do not keep touching things unless they are going to buy it?

Nice but not essential for me right now... too many people browsing and touching

It’s a wonderful feeling being able to pick some flowers from your own garden and then bring them inside to brighten up your home. If you’re thinking of cutting flowers, we’d recommend waiting until they are just starting to show colour, this will give you the best chance of ensuring they last a while. You’re best off cutting the flowers early in the morning too, when their stems are fully turgid. ... See MoreSee Less
