Good morning gardeners. We trust that you all had a good week & that you were able to start some of your winter tidy up routines as leaves have definitely begun to fall in numbers.
Today we would like to remind you that, despite our apparent “Bah humbug” like attitude towards Christmas retailing, we are definitely NOT anti Christmas. We decided many years ago that too many places were going ‘all in’ for seasonal themed selling & that this approach was not for us. So, we decided to keep to our key skills of providing #garden #plants & what you need to grow them all year round.
Does this mean that you cannot shop here for Christmas ?
Absolutely not. If you would like to buy a gift someone who is an amateur gardener, or a professional, chances are that we will have something suitable. We stock hand tools, watering cans, gloves, garden shoes, greenhouse accessories, insect hotels etc plus a wide range of wild bird feeders, feeds & nesting boxes. Amongst these products there are selections from different manufacturers offering you choice across many budgets & grades. Obviously we also have plenty of plants. These too can make wonderful gifts.
If you really cannot decide on an item, but you would like the recipient of you gift to have something gardening related, you could always buy a gift card. We have our own dedicated Clockhouse Nursery cards plus a nationally accepted alternative. Both can be purchased in store & pre loaded with an amount of your choosing.
So. Please do not avoid us just because we do not engage in the selling frenzy of Christmas paraphernalia. Please regard our abstinence in this area as a refreshing change when you wish to engage in undistracted, meaningful gift purchasing.
Happy Gardening Everyone.

Not many Garden Centres can boast over ninety years of history, and yes, we have seen many changes over that period. Indeed change will continue as we strive always to supply the best in plants and facilities. One thing, however, will never change:
The core philosophy first introduced by Archibald John Mills way back in 1928 remains - the philosophy that built the company’s reputation, sustains it now, and will guide it in the future:
The best way to keep gardeners happy is to offer them plants of the highest quality, sold at reasonable prices.Read more
