According to Your Local Garden Center Group, the garden center was designed to be light, airy and well-ventilated.

It feels safe and spacious inside and even when it rains there is a huge covered awning so you can enjoy more time outside in comfort.

A highlight for many will be The Gardener’s Kitchen, a state-of-the-art coffee shop, with panoramic views over the plant display areas and Alver Valley National Park beyond.

An official March opening date for the garden center has yet to be confirmed.
