FROSTS GARDEN CENTRE - THE PLANTS AREA
The outdoor plants area at Frosts Garden Centre, is an attraction in itself.
Carefully designed, it is a delight to wander round the meandering paths with nooks and
crannies. Some of the area, housing mainly seasonal plants, is under cover.
This is a large outdoor area and they stock a huge selection of plants.
Frosts standard 5 year hardy plant guarantee is well advertised
throughout. The plants are superb quality, well watered and in good condition. They are
well displayed giving the appearance of a large garden.
You'll find all the common plants at Frosts Garden Centre and also they specialise in
several areas. Of particular interest was the large selection of ornamental trees, both
large and small varieties. Also of note is the exceptional selection of grasses,
conifers and roses. If you want to make a big statement in your garden they also have a
good selection of extremely large potted plants and trees. Cost should be of no
importance though if you are looking these!
The paths are reasonably wide and almost all are flat and navigable in a
wheelchair. We saw several wheelchair users at this garden centre.
The outdoor plants
area has its own information centre with reference books and bell to attract attention
for more information. The staff were knowledgeable and very helpful.
