    This award winning garden centre is conveniently situated just off the Pepper Hill junction of the A2.

    It is very large and stocks homeware as well as your usual garden centre products. They also own the Aquatic Centre next door and I often take my young daughter there to look at the fish.

    They have quite a large cafe which although I have never purchased anything must be good as it is always busy.

    There is ample parking to the front of the shop so you will not have any difficulty finding a space.

    They also have special

    A very busy garden center with a few extra buildings outside. This is not what I would refer to as a traditional GC but it is usually well stocked if somewhat costly.

    The cafe is very expensive although the food is good.

    It sells all the usual stuff these centres stock ie books, dvd's, clothing, games for kids and adults as well as a good range of seeds. Be warned! Its not the cheapest place to go!

Millbrook Garden Centre is a family-run, independent garden centre. It provides customers with a wide range of quality plants, shrubs, trees, furniture, barbecues, gifts and food items.  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on-hand to give visitors help and advice on all gardening matters.

Our cafe serves hot and cold drinks, snacks, breakfasts, lunches, Sunday roasts and children's meals using fresh, seasonal produce some of which is grown at the garden centre. There is ample free parking.

Tammy W. Business Owner

Tammy Woodhouse, the daughter of Millbrook Garden Centre'ss owners is now managing director.

Tammy started working there as a schoolgirl assistant, never intending to make it her career. But when her father died in 1997 she returned to help her mother and decided to stay. She did a garden design course and a graduate retail training scheme with Debenhams. Now, a few years on, she is proud of Millbrook's achievements.

"We aim to do things a bit differently here, we want people to see the garden centre as a place they want to come to and feel inspired to get busy in their own garden." she said. "We always make sure the quality of our plants is second to none.  The fact that we grow a lot of our own plants sets us apart and we pride ourselves on having really knowledgeable staff, offering lots of good advice and help."
