Botanic Garden Shop

The Botanic Garden Shop at the Brookside Gate offers a wide selection of quality plants, books, stationery, silver jewellery, children’s toys and unique gifts for gardeners.

Our book section offers a diverse range of garden related books, from garden history and design, gardening techniques to books about wildlife, vegetable growing, bee keeping and art books, including watercolour painting and botanical illustration.

Children’s books include board books for toddlers to books about insects and activity books for older kids.

Our toys are always popular and include the popular bug viewers, binoculars and a collection of gemstones.

There is also plenty of choice if you’re looking for a present for a friend or family member: beautiful ceramics, silver jewellery, locally handmade soaps to name a few. Garden related products include bird feeders, bird and bee houses, gardening gloves and secateurs, seed boxes, watering cans and a good selection of vegetable and flower seeds.

Outside the Gift Shop, we've increased the plant sales area which offers a broad variety of perennials, herbs and shrubs most of the year, with potted bulbs and specialised snowdrops in early Spring to herbs, alpines and perennials from April onwards.

Do come and visit.

The Botanic Garden Shop opens daily at 10am, closing 15 minutes before Garden closing time.
