SPRING GARDENING AT OAKCHURCH
FRIENDLY KNOWLEDABLE ADVICE
The garden centre here at Oakchurch changes constantly with the seasons but there’s one thing that never changes and that’s the friendly helpful advice that you’ll always receive from our fully trained horticulturalists and knowledgeable garden experts.
However technical or simple your question, we’re here to offer free friendly help and advice should you need it. You only have to ask.
PROUD TO SUPPORT LOCAL
You’ll find over 10,000 locally grown plants in our garden centre.
They’re from growers and nurseries that we know and trust.
We visit them personally so that we can select the very best quality plants for you.
Houseplants are said to be good for your health and not just for their visual beauty.
They essentially do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This not only freshens up the air, but also eliminates harmful toxins.
In the garden centre here at Oakchurch you'll find a huge range of house plants, everything you'll need to keep them healthy, and lots of lovely decorative pots.
WINNER OF OUR WILD BIRD NEST BOX PRIZE
Congratulations to Kim Marston from Marden who won our recent nest box competition by entering an amazing short video of the numerous sparrows visiting her garden.
"It's like a sparrow airport at my house at times." said Kim.
Kim collected her prize of a nest box and a huge selection of wild bird food from Oakchurch owner, Nick Price.
BALE ART AT OAKCHURCH
Our latest roadside bale art is a gentle reminder that the wild birds in our gardens could do with a little bit of extra help with food at this time of year.
Nest boxes, bird tables and wild bird food - available in our garden centre.
