The Garden Centre at Derwen College offers a wide range of nursery stock, dc homemade products and locally sourced goods from the surrounding areas.
The plants and flowers on display are mainly home-grown at Derwen College, but also supplemented by other suppliers. The 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 the Walled Garden, a work experience area for students, which may provide you with some inspiration for your own garden (opening is weather dependent).
