Welcome to Blackwood Garden Centre

Here at Blackwood Garden Centre we take great pride in growing all our seasonal bedding plants ourselves. A process that started last Autumn by visiting our seed supliers trial grounds  to see what was "new" and would offer our customers some of the latest varieties of bedding plants, collecting seed catologues and trying to to select the best plants for our area to provide long lasting colour.

Sowing of this years crop started the day after Boxing Day! Despite a very cold and dark start to the season giving tough growing conditiions,It is now great to see all the hundreds of hours of hard work sowing and transplanting 1000's of seeds looking great and on sale now,

We have an extensive range of filled tubs and planters as well as hanging baskets ready in store now, why not let us take the strain and do the work for you!

Also, see our About Us page for more information about Blackwood - and come and see us soon!
