The sales kiosk located in the Main Garden is our small social enterprise where outdoor and some indoor plants are available to buy. Seasonal bedding and perennials are typically sown and grown by our client gardeners in the glasshouse in the Herb Garden (and there is a small sales table in that garden as well).

We occasionally receive generous donations from events, florists and suppliers of other outdoor and indoor plants, which we are able to make available for sale. Stock is always changing so make sure you visit frequently!

During November and December, this is where our famous winter wreaths are available to purchase too. This year, our wreaths will be available to purchase from Friday 27th November onward. Hope to see you at the sales kiosk!
