Garden Center and Nursery
You can find garden centers, or 'nurseries' and 'centers', all over the world. In many countries, large national and regional chains dominate the market - such as B&Q and Homebase in the UK, and Home Depot and Lowe's in the US. However, the majority of people will still have a small chain or sole proprietor nearby that sells similar products to the larger gardening center. Many a garden center now has an online presence, where you can search for items before making the journey to the gardening shop to buy them. This is always a good idea as it's worth looking for sale items and to ensure they have adequate supplies before wasting a journey.

Plants, flowers, shrubs and trees
Each Garden Center will sell its own range of different plants, flowers, shrubs and trees (flora). Different climates may determine what types you will find in your local garden center, however there are often similar plant species found nationwide for buying. Such flora will differ throughout the year as the seasons change. Its at the end of seasons that you may be able to find bargains and items in a sale. All plants should come with directions of how to plant and maintain them, however it is always worth researching what type of environment they thrive in. Different flowers, shrubs, trees, climbers and vines require different amounts of sun, shade, water and a certain soil type - so finding out could be important. Your local garden center will have staff trained to answer these types of questions!

Vegetables and Herbs
Other popular products at the garden center are seeds to grow vegetables and herbs, as well as the containers, pots, planters and baskets to grow them in. Growing your own herbs and vegetables can be very enjoyable and if you are keen on cooking it is always handy to have fresh herbs outside the back door. Having access to fresh organic vegetables is equally as rewarding, plus you can pick them from the ground and eat them the same day throughout the year. Visit our vegetable and herb pages for information and ideas about starting a garden. You could even enter local competitions if you're looking for a new hobby!

Garden Center Furniture, tools and equipment
The larger gardening center will also sell a range of furniture for the yard and patio, as well as inside the home. Articles dedicated to different types of garden furniture can be found throughout this site - but some of the options may include tables, sets, chairs, cushions, benches and swings. Furniture will come in a range of material and styles so you can match the decor to suit your home or existing features you already have. Other types of tools and equipment available may be gardening tools such as spades, forks, hoses, lawn mowers, hedge trimmers and gloves to protect your hands whilst working away! Other heavy duty equipment such as power sprays for cleaning driveways and patios, or compounders for help compressing hardcore may also be available.

Garden Center Accessories - Ornaments and attractions
The larger garden center generally offers more products and services than your local nursery will, as they normally concentrate on the supply of plants for retail. Garden Centers may also sell pet supplies and fish in addition to furniture and tools. Gardening centers often have seasonal offers such as Easter or Christmas sections which provide Christmas trees, cards and decorations - as well as garden and yard art. The garden center will also employ many staff to help with the running of the stores, customer service and also specialised jobs for horticulturists and trained builders and gardeners. They are therefore great to have in the local community even if you don't have green fingers. The oldest garden center in the UK dates back to 1775 and can be found in West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. A great fact to share with the staff when you visit your local gardening center next.
