Summer is almost here and us garden lovers can’t wait to get outside. Our dedicated outdoor furniture area, situated just up from the basket and bedding plants and a short walk from the main shop, houses some beautiful designs.
Whether you’ve taken on a new garden this year, or you’re looking to spruce up your tired outdoor spaces, at Almondsbury, we have a wide selection of garden furniture to give you the vision you want. Our garden furniture selection, located just up from the plants section, boasts some beautiful features that would make perfect additions to your outdoor areas.
Ask any gardener why they do what they do and they’ll often tell you that gardening is, quite simply, the way they relax after long and hard days.
Supermarkets are around every corner and with a whole world of fruit and vegetables at our fingertips, not just what we can grow in our back gardens, the question is: why would you grow your own vegetables? What are the benefits? Join us as we take a look at some of the biggest.
Do you or someone you know fancy yourself as a chef at home? If so, we have just the thing for you at Almondsbury Garden Centre. As part of our Christmas display, we're offering a huge range of kitchen utensils, chopping boards, egg holders and even teapots.
Although many of our favourite trees and flowers are now shedding their vibrant colours and our gardens are beginning to look bare, there are still plenty of ways that we can keep that colour going through the colder, fresher days.
The days may be getting colder and shorter, but at Almondsbury we’ve got some great ideas and inspiration to keep that colour coming.
Dahlias come in so many shapes, sizes and colours, and they are just coming into their element. In our colder and shorter summers, these flowers provide us with that pop of colour our gardens need.
Celebrate summer with a wonderful water feature. With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to bring new and exciting features to our ponds.
With our ever-changing gardens, containers and hanging baskets are growing in popularity. Although you’re more restricted with baskets as opposed to beds and borders, if you work this to your advantage these restricted spaces can focus in powerful colour and shape to your garden instantly.
Mother’s Day gives us all the perfect opportunity to celebrate our Mums. At Almondsbury, we’ve selected only the best flowers and more to make your Mum’s day special.
Our gardens may only just be waking up from their long wintry slumber, but there are already some wonderful flowers ready to start adding some much-needed splashes of colour to your beds, borders and containers. This March, why not fill your garden with some beautiful early colour with our proud range of primroses?
Potatoes are so much more than food staples. Although you can find them in every supermarket, shop-bought spuds offer you much less flavour, texture and colour than the crops you could be growing in your garden. Even for the experienced potato grower, trying new and improved varieties can give you a crop that tastes miles better than what you’ve been growing before.
Cactuses are iconic and it’s easy to see why. They don’t need a garden to flourish – they also don’t need much watering or care. On top of this, each cactus has its own individual charm and every plant is a living sculpture, bringing wonderful shapes and forms to your office and your home.
Primroses are great flowers for beginners. If you're new to gardening this year these small, vibrant flowers are easy to look after and require very little attention. What's more, the plants are perennials – so, once you've established them, they'll keep flowering year after year.
As a garden centre, it might surprise you to know that, at Almondsbury, not only do we stock top-quality garden products here, but we have a wonderful range of bath salts, toiletries and even jewellery in our main shop. If you're looking for something original and different to give someone this Christmas, we have some inspiring gifts for you to feast your eyes on. Our beauty section, with hand washes, bath soaps and more, sits alongside the garden wear and tools, lovely food hampers, cards and fun presents for kids – giving you a huge selection of goods all under one roof.
There is nothing quite like wandering onto a garden and seeing the elegance of tulips. The appeal of tulips stretches so far that the amount of varieties available is something to admire in itself. From the early days of Spring right through to the middle of Summer, tulips fill your garden with bright, bold colour. And, if you're after something a little subtler, there are varieties for achieving that, too.
Autumn is now officially here and the temperatures are beginning to drop. However, don’t let that stop you from enjoying a last dash of colour. Though summer bedding plants and many perennials will have finished flowering now, small, clustered alpine plants make perfect additions to any garden or hanging basket.
September is now here. With the end of the Summer beckoning, those beautiful flowers that we’ve been growing all season in our beds, borders or containers are now beginning to fade. Even the blooms on larger trees are now coming to an end, with fruit trees swelling their delicious crops ready for tasty Autumn harvests.
There’s nothing quite like alpine plants. These plants might look small and delicate; yet, they’re some of the best plants for our climate. Here, at Almondsbury, we have a great selection of alpine plants on offer.
At Almondsbury, we are very passionate about our plants. We put the greatest care into stocking, arranging and maintaining our plants so that you can feel excited and inspired when you step inside. Our bottom greenhouse is currently brimming with beautiful colour, as fuchsia baskets float over the bedding packs, and osteospermums sing in warm, vibrant hues.
We’re now in the warmest and most productive part of the growing season. From fruits and vegetables to flowers and trees – the time is ripe for setting up some colour in your garden to enjoy through the long evenings and the sunny days.
The days are beginning to get warmer and lighter, and that can only mean one thing. Summer is around the corner and it’s time to get the garden ready for those long, hot evenings again.
There's a certain charm about marigolds that holds them high on a gardener's list of summer flowers to grow.
We all know that food is what makes Christmas the great holiday that it is. Whether it be tucking into some festive chocolates or preparing a delicious spread with your favourite chutneys and jams on the side, you can’t beat that homely feeling.
There’s nothing that kids love more than sweets at Christmas. Whether it be in their stockings on Christmas Day, or given as little treats throughout the festive season – chocolate and other tasty treats are a must. This year, why not swap the busy supermarkets and crammed shopping centres for our warmer and calmer atmosphere at Almondsbury Garden Centre?

Whether you’re after chocolate liquors, figurines or stocking fillers, we have wonderful gift ideas here at Almondsbury Garden Centre.There is no better time for chocolates than at Christmas.

Christmas is a time for relaxing, and at Almondsbury we have a range of beauty products to help you feel pampered.
When we look out of our windows in January, the sky is often grey, the ground muddy and the plants very dormant. What we really want is that touch of colour to see us to spring and the main event. And there are two wonderful plants that can bring that joy to our gardens. More importantly, they don’t require much space or effort to provide that colour, too.
It's that time of year again; you dash around desperately looking for that right Christmas tree to fit your home. But you don't need to panic - we have everything you could need and more here at Almondsbury Garden Centre.
