The Plant Centre is attractively located within the gardens and offers a good selection of hardy plants, all sourced from UK growers.
The timber Woodside Garden Centre stocks a range of practical gardening items such as seeds, seasonal bulbs, garden tools, gloves, and string as well as a superb range of wild bird food and feeders. New for 2021 is our aquatics section offering everything you need for ponds and water gardening.
Also located in this area is the grocery shop.
The Plant Centre and Garden Shop is currently manned by myself (Emma), and husband Stephen, with lots of help from our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team, so we are able to help with your purchases and offer sensible advice.
We always have in stock a wide range of plants, depending on the season. This will include:
- Annual bedding plants, both winter and summer
- trees and shrubs
- fruit trees
- vegetable plants
- herbaceous perennials
We also have a good range of seasonal bulbs and vegetable seeds for sale.
Compost, fertilisers and other gardening staples
We stock a full range of composts, fertilisers, chemicals and organic products depending on the seasons. We are proud to stock Dalefoot compost, sustainably and organically produced in the Lake District using sheep's fleece.
We also have a full range of gardening accessories and tools. We now offer a tool-sharpening service.
We stock pots and planters from the Errington Reay and Mims salt glazed, elemental and courtyard ranges. We also have a range of Green man wall plaques, statues and bird baths.
We are very pleased to have an excellent range of wildlife products, including nesting pouches, bee habitats, bird boxes and bug hotels. We also have our own range of wild bird food, which have been developed with bird food experts, Red Barn. These include the Woodside No Grow Wild Bird Seed, Woodside "2Honeysuckle" Mix and Woodside Blue Tit Feast.
