The range of plants for sale at Hollybush is unusually wide and varied. Some examples of the more unusual plants for sale are shown to the right and below.

The left hand picture below is of a fully grown olive tree which was for sale at �2,999.99! Too expensive for most us I know but it just illustrates the variety of the plants for sale.

Monkey Tree

In particular, there was a wide range of clematis, roses, conifers and ornamental trees. The signs around the outdoor plant area were generally good and the plants were arranged alphabetically. In some cases though, hebes for instance, the plants were not where you would expect from the signs.

The outdoor area had a large covered section and many of the walkways were also covered. So, if it's raining when you want a plant, Hollybush is a good garden centre to visit.

The aisles were wide and free of obstructions, especially good for wheelchair users.


We looked for a hardy plant guarantee but found none advertised. This is a bit disappointing for such a large garden centre. The plants though looked in excellent condition, well cared for and watered.

Those that didn't quite come up to the normal high quality were in a bargain corner for sale at �1! This truly was a bargain because although the bargain plants were not perfect, they would soon recover in a garden setting

If you are looking to buy a shed, conservatory or greenhouse then Hollybush stock a good range. They are well presented and attractive.
