The outdoor plant area is very pleasantly laid out. No boring straight
criss-cross paths at this garden centre. Someone has definitely put a lot of thought
into the design to make it very attractive and interesting. And this has been done at the
cost of small paths. All were wide enough for wheelchair access and uncluttered. Proof
that a garden centre can be attractive and accessible at the same time.
About half the outdoor area is under cover making it good if the rain is falling. The
plants all looked in tip top condition. Overhead signs were clear and helped to locate
Wyevale's Beaconsfield is a medium sized garden centre so it is not surprising
that there were no particular areas of plant specialities. We were pleased to see
however a good selection of ferns on offer. You should have no problem in finding most
normal garden plants at this garden centre.

INDOOR SALES AREA
For a garden centre of this size there was a fair number of houseplants for
sale, all which were priced reasonably and looked in good condition.
There was a
Pet Centre at this garden centre with a good selection of feeds and accessories
The indoor sales area also contained the standard range of cards and gifts plus all
the gardening accessories.
A large area was devoted to conservatory and outdoor
furniture, much more than would be expected from a garden centre of this size.
The car park was large enough and on a flat and dry surface. It was however split into
two parts, one being on the other side of a road.
