Welcome to Elm Court Garden Centre

An independent garden centre and proud of it.

Our garden centre has a great variety of new plants, shrubs, and trees ready for you to add colour & structure to your garden, and you can be assured all our plants are of the highest quality, many purchased from local nurseries.

Alongside this we have a very wide range of garden products which include greenhouses, garden furniture, water features, pots, landscaping, hanging baskets, obelisks, garden décor and much more.

Why not take a relaxing walk around our extensive displays and enjoy building ideas to create your own perfect garden. Many customers are saying “That they are surprised at just how large the garden centre was now”.

Also on offer in our large garden centre shopping area is a great range of products: homeware, gifting, hobby, gardening, cards, pet care, reptiles & fish food. There is too much to list here why not pop in and see for yourself.

We have a strong Garden Club membership scheme which is free of charge to join and offers discounts on products and can be used in our restaurant and cafe. If you are not already a member, ask about the benefits and sign up at our tills – completely free.

Enjoy dining in our Bistrant Table Service Restaurant which offers inside or outside seating options. In the Spring, Summer and Autumn enjoy family favourites in our music cafe adjacent to our outdoor children’s play area.

Dogs are welcome in the garden centre and even have their own area and menu in our Bistrant.

Our team at Elm Court look forward to seeing you.

You can buy an animal at any time in the run up to Christmas while in stock and we will hold it for you until just before Christmas.

Freshly Cut Christmas Trees have arrived

Despite 2 years of cost increases from our supplier, we are still holding 2021 prices for these great quality trees.

All trees are unwrapped so you can take your time, select exactly the right tree for you. There is no rush, spin them round, compare different trees next to other and find the perfect one for you and your family.


What you get when buying your Christmas Tree from us

We un-net all of our trees, which allows you to choose the tree size and style for your home, as well as helping them to retain their needles.

Each tree comes with a plant food sachet to help keep it in tip top condition.

We can cut off the bottom 2 ” of the trunk, just before you leave which allows the tree to take up water. (Optional FOC)

When you buy a real Christmas tree you get £5 off any Christmas lights.

Once selected, continue shopping, or visit our Bistrant for a meal or drink. When you are ready to leave, we will re-net and bring your tree to your car.

Want your tree delivered? We can deliver your tree to you.

Pot Grown Christmas Trees are now in stock

Pot-grown Christmas trees have become an increasingly popular choice for those looking to celebrate the holiday season with a sustainable and eco-friendly touch.

These trees are grown in containers, making them easy to transport and handle.

One of the key advantages of pot-grown Christmas trees is their potential for reuse in subsequent years, as they can be replanted in the garden or kept in a pot, which not only saves money but also reduces the environmental impact of tree disposal.

£5 off any Christmas Lights when you purchase any real Christmas Trees

Don’t leave it too late – choose the perfect shape, colour, style and size of tree for your home.
