Shannon's Garden Centre

July 8, 2010

In this day and age with all the chain owned, supermarket style Garden Centres, it is a pleasure to have a family run business with their own Garden Centre. This is a place for plant lovers, from beginners to the experienced. With helpful and knowledgeable staff, If they haven't got what you want, they will try to get if for you!

Ooooohh--- this little shop looks like a fun and interesting place to go browse, inquire, or buy! I like their displays of flowers and plants, and esp. that pebble & gravel thingie, showing what each one looks like Out of the bag! I really like the Family-owned businesses best, as they Know what they sell; we usually do have to pay more at these places, but it's worth it, esp. if you need correct info on something; plus, you help out the small local business-owners.
Thanks for the great article, Neil--- Good Job! I tip my hat to you.

Dear Connie, thank you. However they have to keep their prices down as there are other chain owned Garden Centres nearby! But it is the local people and especially people that need advice; for they would never sell you a plant that will not grow where you ask for help for, as they have such a good reputation! I just told Cherie that I was in there yesterday and one of the family bosses came to talk to me and he was out watering and tending the plants, you do not see that in chain Garden Centres!
They are just a well run family business; with a knowledge of plants and landscaping.
Who could ask for more?
