Much of the outdoor plants area is under cover, more
than is normally the case. So, rain need not concern you too much if
you are visiting this garden centre.
The plants looked in
excellent condition, well-watered and well kept. This was backed up
by a two year hardy plant guarantee. Many of the plants are grown by
Flowerland themselves, commendable.
The range of plants for sale was extensive and you will find
all the normal shrubs, climbers, bedding plants and more to
satisfy your gardening needs. There was a good selection of
ornamental trees on offer at the time of our visit.
Individual plant information was excellent although a lack
of overhead signs to plant groups was missing. Possibly because
of the re-fit in progress.
Larger plant specimens were well presented and attractively laid
The paths were wide and clear with mostly concrete surfaces.
There was gravel in some places but it was solid.
We came across the fully grown olive tree (left) at �1,400 but
at the same time there were standard olive trees (right) at a
reasonable �29.99 for the less well off!

protected position until they were large enough to transplant to
Another bargain was the price of shrub rose bushes. The
normal Flowerland price was �5.49 which is good. But when we visited in
April, they were reduced to �2.99, a remarkably cheap price. These roses
were not reduced because of damage, they were in fact in excellent
The prices at Flowerland were very reasonable and given the range of
"specials" on offer they represented good value for money as our
shopping basket below illustrates.
