Try the cafe from breakfast to Sunday lunch , ask for Mark the cafe manager always willing to help all the girls are patient, nothing is too much trouble , oh ask louis to cook your breakfast I'm doing weightwatchers and he has been very helpful.
The main wyevale garden centre offers so much it's hard to list . Always an array of colours a bountiful haven for any budding gardener , or just to look at .
This garden centre is great for me, my kids find looking at endless rows of plants in plastic pots crushingly boring, but I can lure them here with the promise of a trip to the cafe, the pet shop and the aquatic pet shop which are all attached.
There is a reasonable variety of plants, as well as the usual selection of bedding annuals, roses and 'useful' evergreen shrubs, various perennials, ferns, ornamental grasses, trees and shrubs are offered. I've bought quite a few climbers in 9cm pots which are only £3.50, much more affordable than spending £12 or so on the same thing in a bigger pot, apparently younger plants establish better once planted than older ones.
I find the selection of houseplants a bit dismal, but that's only a minor quible, overall a thumbs up for the Garden Centre (it doesn't seem to be a Wyevale and more).
Property is so expensive in Brighton that what would be considered a bin yard up North is considered a spacious front or back garden here!
Being lucky enough to have both a spacious front and back garden, I am always on the look out for gorgeous new plants. I usually buy my lavendar and herbs from Flower City round the corner and go to Wyevale Garden Centre for everything else. It's expensive but the stock is always varied and extremely good quality. They have plant pots, soil, gardening furniture and seeds inside and a massive selection of seasonal and perennial flowers, plants and fruit trees inside. I've bought everything from rosemary, thyme and chilli plants to dahlias and rose bushes and everything has grown beautifully.
In fact, if I could afford it I'd go back tomorrow and order fig and olive trees for next spring.
Wyevale Garden centre is a great place to cater to the more serious gardeners needs. Instead of pretty flowers or little pot plants for your urban window sill, this place is all about getting your hands mucky and doing some real gardening.
Good selection of tools of the trade which can be hard to find elsewhere, and knowledgeable staff are what sets Wyevale apart.
This garden centre is a good place to get your plants. It is big and has all kinds of plants. I have been there a few times in summer to get plants for my garden. The prices are not too bad. To be fair I don't think it was expensive but then again at that time I haven't been to any garden centre before. This was the first garden centre I visited and it still is. I don't have a garden now so I never haven't visited one since then. It was a great experience.
I like plants with lots of leaves and not flowering plants. Its amazing the plants you can get with different shades of green and different shaped leaves. We use to have so many plants in our garden we had to give them to friends when we moved.
I must be getting old as I now love nothing more than looking round a garden centre. Wyevale has everything you want (and more !) for your gardening needs. Centre is always well stocked and prices are reasonble. Staff are knowledgeable and will give some realy good advice if you ask them questions. Lots of parking available on site. Much better than a lot of the other garden centres in the Brighton area.
Well, it has a lot of stock. but I think it found out years ago that most of its clientele want the stuff that goes with a garden - in the indoor section, you're hard pressed to find the plants, amongst all the artificial flowers, gift sets, cakes and so on. There are some helpful concessions there - a pets concession and an ornamental fish one too, which are both great, very detailed.
In the open air section, things are better. There are still lots and lots of non-plant stuff - decking, paving, pots, etc etc - but there are rows and rows of well laid out plant stocks, some seasonal, some permanent. There's also a good cafe, and if you're in the area and don't want to travel into Brighton centre, thats absolutely your best choice, its roomy, the toilets are nice, its a must-do.
Parking is fantastic - it shares the basic racecourse car park, tho the racecourse also spills over onto the grassland outside, of course.
