NOTCUTTS DUKERIES GARDEN CENTRE - THE PLANTS
The outdoor plants area at the Dukeries is pleasantly laid out with no
regimented criss-cross paths. Running alongside the area were a series of greenhouse
sales areas which were partly populated with plants.
The paths were wide in most
places, fine for wheelchairs, with only a few easily navigated slopes. It had all been
kept clean and tidy.
There were lots of overhead signs indicating where particular groups of plants could be
found. Plants were also sub-grouped, on some occasions, in to specific growing growing
conditions (full, sun, part shade etc).
The range of plants was good, Notcutts claim
up to 3,000 types of hardy plants. They were all covered by the Notcutts 2 year
The plants were in good condition and well-watered. All the normal varieties of plants
can be found at the Dukeries and some unusual ones as well. There was a particularly
good range of rhododendrons and azaleas when we visited. Staff were plentiful and
appeared extremely knowledgeable about the plants. There was a good information house in
the outdoor area.
