This is a totally independent GardenAction opinion of the Wyevale Coventry Garden Centre.

The Wyevale Coventry Garden Centre can be classified as medium sized. It is in a pleasant area of Coventry near Allesley and just outside Brownshill Green. They are a five minute drive from Chestnut Nurseries which is also reviewed in our pages (click here for the review).

If you were expecting Wyevale's to have a cafe or restaurant (as we expected) you will be disappointed.

White Lion Pub, Brownhills, Coventry However, there is a very pleasant country pub a minute's drive from Wyevale's (the White Lion) which serves excellent, well-priced food and has a good range of beers.

Turn right out of Wyevale, across the roundabout immediately in front of you and the White Lion is about a half a mile on your right.


For a medium-sized garden centre the range of plants was fine. Surprisingly Wyevale's appears to be the largest garden centre in Coventry, so the range is as good as you will get in Coventry.

Wyevale offer a five year guarantee on all their perennial plants which is very encouraging, showing confidence in the quality of their plants.

It was not easy to locate some plants because the signs were not sufficient. The main groupings are OK (roses, azaleas etc) but try and find a potentilla for example and it's not so clear.

There was no attended help desk or information centre in this garden centre but that's the normal for a garden centre of this size.

Price Promise The quality of most plants looked reasonable but there were several specimens dotted around which looked on their last legs.

Wyevale offer a "double the difference" if you find a plant cheaper at a garden centre or nursery within 10 miles. We haven't seen this at other Wyevale garden centres, maybe Coventry is leading the way!

The price of our standard shopping basket at Wyevale Coventry Garden Centre was about average with no great surprises. There were a few special offers but it was hard to see that they were any different to multiple purchases at most other garden centres
