Darlingtons traditional garden centre Elm Ridge has been around for years. It's quite an upmarket place and has a Florist who does amazing arrangements for any occassion.
The garden centre side is slightly restricted by the size of the area around the main building but there is usally a good range od plants in season.
They also have a section covering water gardens which can be a bit of a tricky area to get started in so advice is always on hand.
Worth a look but do bear your budget in mind!
The florist is excellent, however I find the garden centre overpriced and the last time we visited the aquatics section many of the fish were dead and just left on the bottom of the tanks.
