Welcome to our new website!

At Chestnut Garden Centre you'll find everything you need to make the most of your garden in every season. We have a wide range of garden gifts, tools, pots, compost and fertilisers as well as plants.

Our plants and trees come from the many local nurseries in the area. By buying locally, we can get the best quality and keep prices competitive too.

Our range of Fruit and Ornamental Trees is one of the widest in the area (maybe the widest...). As well as many types of "normal" trees, you will find fan-trained, patio trees and family trees (2 or 3 varieties on the same stem) - great if you have limited space.

Of course all our advice is free, so if you're not sure what you need, please ask one of our staff.

Look out for the many special offers throughout the centre too.

We believe if our customers get good value for money and great customer service, they will come back again and again, so that's what we try to do.

Please call or pop in soon to see what's on offer!
