This branch of Dobbies opened in 2006, occupying a vacant factory. We visited them to review all the facilities of this garden centre. This page looks at the plants and prices.

This is a totally independent GardenAction opinion of Dobbies Garden Centre, Cirencester.


The outdoor plant sales area at Dobbies in Cirencester is spacious and clean. The paths are more than wide enough for wheelchair access. A significant part of the area is under cover offering some protection from the rain.
Having said that, the area is very uninspiring, the paths being boring straight lines.

Five year guarantee for hardy plants Dobbies offer their standard five year guarantee on all hardy plants which is very good by industry standards.
The plants were in good condition and well watered. The range of plants was good but signs to find them, important for an area this size, were very small. They excelled in no particular plant range. There was an excellent manned information centre in the plants area.
