Looking for that special plant? Garden nurseries are the place for you. Dotted all over the country, we have more than 900 listed on The Gardening Website. Most will mail out your plant order, but you may have to visit some to pick up the plant you want – while you’re there, take the chance to browse what they have on offer and chat to their experts about the best way to keep your plants thriving. Because they are often specialised, some garden nurseries are only open at certain times, sell via mail order or may offer only a wholesale service, so please do check on their website for opening times and details, or give them a call before heading out.

Oh, the joy of growing your own vegetables! Whether you choose to just grow a few tomatoes in pots and some herbs for cooking, or go the whole hog with soft fruits, an allotment – even chickens – there’s nothing to beat the taste of fruit and vegetables you’ve grown yourself. Yes, your carrots may be less than straight, and your potatoes might be a bit knobbly, but they’ll be so big on flavour you won’t notice. To help you enjoy the thrill of grow your own (we are big fans ourselves), we’ve thought of everything you might need for your own vegetable or fruit garden, found the best suppliers and the best prices – so you can concentrate on the good stuff. Enjoy!
