At Scotsdales Shelford

A garden centre with 50 years of experience yet changing with the times, we  offer large ranges of plants and products across multiple departments not forgetting our core values.

Plants, advice, aftercare, ideas, gifts, Café, kids, events, offers, range, quality, experience …

There are lots of reasons to visit, perhaps more than once to be able to really take in the vast offerings and the true character of Scotsdales.

We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy your time spent with us
