Wyevale Coventry Garden Centre
For a medium sized garden centre there was a fair selection of
house plants and they were in good condition.
Usefully, the plants
were grouped according to the conditions they prefer in the home
(light, shady, cool and warm).
As is normal for medium sized garden centres there are few other
features in this Coventry garden centre. No aquatics or pet shops and
only a few books and gifts.
At the time of our visit there was a good selection of
barbecues and outdoor furniture.
This was disappointing. No wheelchairs were available and no special
toilet facilities. The garden centre had obviously been designed with
the disabled in mind because there were no steps. But the aisles over
many parts of the garden centre, especially the plant area, were
cluttered with plants, spades and other obstructions. I would guess that
30% of the plant area was obstructed in some manner as far as the
disabled would be concerned.
At the time we visited (11.00 onwards) some of the plant
area had widebore hosepipes across many of the aisles and pools of
water. This would also prove difficult for the disabled. Most other garden
centres don't appear to have this problem.
The toilets were clean with no queues. We could not find any areas
designated for the disabled or toddler changing facilities.

DATE OF LAST UPDATE
Coventry is short on large garden centres so Wyevale is a good place to
visit to provide a broad range of your gardening needs. But it's not one
we would wholeheartedly recommend. The disabled facilities are also
poor. Prices are acceptable.
