This garden center has been here for years and it just gets better and better, I wont go on about the plants and the usual stuff for a garden center as everyone does that, instead I shall tell you of my experience off the mechanical dept. I needed a new chain for my chain saw and so I took the old thing in there on a Sunday afternoon not expecting to get a result but instead I found a very helpful knowledgeable old chap who just by seeing the manual for the saw, straight away found a chain that would be a perfect fit and also some care tips for the saw without making me feel like a child. Very helpful and I shall return soon.
I have bought many things from Scotsdales, such as woodchip, soil, gloves, plants, flowers and tools, but easily my favourite and bestest purchase was a little stone buddha that sits in our garden.
When the sun is out I sit on the bench with a cup of tea and look at the buddha and feel pleased.
Great garden centre, seems to get better, pity it's so far from me, but I enjoy it when visiting my cousin.
One of the best garden centres in teh area with a wide selection of plants for both indoors and outdoors with books care advice etc as well. Huge Christmas selections and a wonderful restaurant where you can enjoy a great reasonably priced meal or justa cup of tea. Great for all .
This is a fantastic garden centre. they have a large inside area, and an even larger outside area. They sell many plants, shrubs, trees. THere are a good range of pots - some of which are gigantic! There is an animal section where they stock baby rabbits and guinea pigs, they also have a few birds, rats, hamsters, gerbils. There is a good size fish section, and also tropical fish department (this is currently being refurbished). They have a good range of outdoor furniture, and at christmas their display is fantastic (a bit pricey), with many classy decorations and little gifts. There is a santas grotto which is definately worth a visit. The prices in general are towards the higher end, but they do sell good quality items - and as with most things you get what you pay for!
It always amazes me what I find at Scotsdales its not all about the flowers. Scotsdales continues to grow and now offers party balloons, seasonal gifts and at the moment great christmas decorations. Its great for all the family the kids love looking at the rabbits and parrots they have there and also visiting Santa who is there on the weekends. For the grandparents its all about the wide variety of indoor and outdoor plants they have to offer and there is always the cafe where you can get a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea for a reasonable price.
This is one of the best garden centres around. It stocks a really wide varierty of plants, shrubs and trees, as well as pots, water features and general garden things. They also sell cards and books. There is a pet section with toys and food for various animals. They actually sell rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, and parrots as well as various tropical and cold water fish. They have a really good Christmas shop at the moment with lovely displays. They sell fake Christmas trees and decorations. In the summer this area is filled with gazebos and outdoor furniture. It's a great place to bring small children on a rainy day!
Quite a find, huge range, big cafe... gardener's paradise
Excellent value for garden plants and pots, also some other pretty things inside to browse through!
