Front entrance to the World's End garden centre near Aylesbury. This garden centre is currently owned by Wyevale.

GardenAction have reviewed World's End garden centre near Aylesbury from a totally independent view. World's End garden centre is a sprawling set of buildings arranged in a straight line. You enter one building then exit it outside and into the next building. Alongside the buildings is the plant sales area. This arrangement didn't particularly suit us because navigating round the garden centre felt like going round different shops.

There was no help desk which was surprising and disappointing for a large garden centre. There was also a distinct lack of signs to the different departments in World's End. The lack of signs make finding your way around this long and thin garden centre a bit confusing. The toilets were also difficult to find, we had to ask.


Plant sales area at Worlds End garden centre, Aylesbury The standard of the plants was good in general, they looked healthy and well-watered. A few plants  such as the camellias did show signs of frost damage to the flowers. There were some signs to indicate where different types of plants could be found but much of it relied on alphabetic placement. No attempt had been made to group plants by size, or shade etc.

We looked for signs of guarantees on hardy plants but none was advertised. Disappointing for a garden centre of this size.
