As a traditional garden centre, a large area was given over to plant sales. The outdoor area is pleasantly arranged and the main pathways are covered.

The quality of the plants was excellent although no hardy plant guarantee was advertised. All the normal plants were there on sale and there was a fair selection of less common plants.

Outdoor plant area at Grasmere

Signs in the outdoor sales area at grasmere Garden Centre It is easy to find your way around the outdoor area. Plant groups were well signed and in alphabetical order within their groups.

The paths were wide enough for wheelchair access although the majority of the outdoor area was on a slope. This should not be a problem for most.

Greenhouses and pools If rockery plants are of interest to you then Grasmere has an unusually large selection (see right).

Also on site was a swimming pool sales are and a selection of greenhouses.

Rockery plants for sale

Grasmere Garden centre have made pricing plants a whole lot easier than most. There are lots signs (see right) around the plant area which show that the colour of the pot determines the price.

This doesn't apply to all plants but it does cover the majority. A great idea.
