Whether you’re a keen gardener or someone who’s looking to take on a new garden challenge, then you’ve come to to right place.

Our Gardening department stocks a wide range of tools and supplies to help you with a variety of gardening tasks.

These days gardening is becoming more accessible and does not always rely on a vast green space. You can still enjoy looking after a beautiful collection of plants on a small balcony or try growing your own in a patio container.

Sometimes with smaller gardens comes the opportunity to take on an allotment, which can be rewarding in so many ways. And we believe if you stick to tried and tested methods with the right tools, you can’t go wrong.

Before you get started, consider whether you need to clear the ground. This is where our Garden Machinery department can help, because we have everything from Leaf Blowers to Lawn Mowers. Or perhaps you might need a Cultivating Tool to prepare soil. We’ve got it covered with our extensive Garden Tools & Equipment with all the essentials you might need.

If you’re unsure and would like some friendly advice, please call in to see one of our trained team members in-store who will be happy to help and recommend the best tool for the job. We stock many well-known brands and names you can trust and rely on, from Hozelock and Spear & Jackson to Wolf Garten and Wilkinson Sword, but to name a few.

We know that growing plants isn’t always the answer for enhancing outdoor space. Sometimes all that is needed to improve a garden is some simple and thoughtful hard landscaping. We’ve a great range of Landscaping Products, which we keep in-store and available to buy online for local home delivery all year round. Try using Rockery Stones to add interest or chippings to finish off and cover edges. Our top tip is to remember to use Weed Blocker under chippings and stones to prevent unwelcome weeds. As you can imagine we also have a great range of weed killers and pest control.

But if you’re looking to re-home, pot-on or simply get planting, take a look at our wide range of growing media, feeds and fertilisers in our Garden Supplies department. Naturally, we recommend our very own Gates Garden Centre Multi-Purpose Compost. And we have a fabulous range of Pots and Planters to host most sizes and varieties of indoor and outdoor plants.

We highly recommend a visit to our Garden Centre to see for yourself. We take great pride in our plants, which are cared for daily by our expert plant team. We keep our indoor and outdoor Plants updated every season with new stock, but if you can’t find what you are looking for, please feel free to get in touch. Our plants are healthy, vibrant and interesting. We like to think there’s something for every budget too.  We hope you enjoy browsing our ranges, which includes Bulbs, Roses, Shrubs and Perennials.

At Gates Garden Centre we take Gardening seriously and we are steadily adding to our online offerings every month to ensure you can enjoy as much variety in your garden as possible.
