The Garden Centre at Derwen College offers a wide range of nursery stock, ‘[email protected] Derwen’ products and locally sourced goods.
The Garden Centre
The plants and flowers on display at the Garden Centre are mainly home-grown at Derwen College, but also supplemented by other suppliers.
Derwen College students are widely involved in the seed sowing, potting-on and selling of plants on display.
Home-grown and home-produced chutneys, jams, cakes, breads and pastries are available including fresh fruit and vegetables. Did you know we have received three Great Taste Awards for our jams and chutneys?
You can buy quality gifts and cards produced by local businesses as well as a variety of local dairy, bakery, butchery and other grocery products.
There is a wide variety of both indoor and outdoor plants available to buy at the garden centre. Seasonal outdoor plants include trees (ornamental and fruit), soft fruit, roses, shrubs, herbaceous plants and bedding plants. Unusual gifts, cards, tools and equipment are also available to purchase as well as up-cycled goods created by Derwen College students at our Ashdale House satellite site.
You can also buy and exchange National Garden Vouchers which make great gifts to give or receive.
Visit our award-winning Walled Garden!
The garden was recognised during judging for the 2019 Heart of England in Bloom awards. It has received an award in the It’s Your Neighbourhood category. It’s Your Neighbourhood is all about bringing members of the community together to make a positive change to the place they live, work or spend their leisure time.
The Walled Garden is open to visitors and also plays an important role in providing a work experience area for students. A visit may just provide you with some horticultural inspiration for your own garden!
