First of all..
We are not a Garden Center.

At First Impressions, we’re not a typical garden center. Unlike those that offer a myriad of unrelated items like garden furniture and even barbeques, our focus is solely on providing you with the finest plants and expert advice to help you become a better gardener.

From bedding plants to shrubs, climbers to herbs, and even specialty items like chillies, our nursery offers a diverse selection of plants available year-round. Situated with ample parking and easy access, visiting First Impressions is hassle-free.

Just to be absolutely clear, we don’t have a cafe where you can buy cakes but we do offer a warm welcome to budding and experienced gardeners alike.

What our customers are saying…

Great nursery for plug plants way cheaper than the big garden centres. 40p per plug plant. They are selling them now, petunias, surfinas, different types of hanging basket plugs. They also have geraniums, tomato,chillies ,herbs and perennials. Nearly forgot the begonias. Also sell perennials, pansies, summer bedding. They were redesigning part of the nursery when we visited so there wasn’t as many shrubs and perennials as usual but still worth a visit.

Nice garden center lots of variety and for a good price. Can’t believe I didn’t know about it all this time. Cheapest garden center been too and will be buying my plants from here from now on.


Love love this place. All seedlings taken and growing nicely. Can’t wait for the warmth to come. Very helpful staff and helped load into car for me.

Nice collection of perennials. Large Gooseberry if you are lucky to catch them when they arrive. Bought some last year. Wanted more and missed out this year as sold out. Nice collection of hardy allostermia in at least 10 colours. Lots of herbs and strawberries and annuals. Loads of plug plants. But one of the smaller garden centres and is family run. None of the accessories to wade through which is great and just plants plants and more plants. Think it’s not open on weekends though as per Google.

Super staff, super plants and super prices. I’ve been a couple of times and bought established plants and mini/jumbo plug plants. Everything is really good quality and I found about 10 different varieties of bidens for example. There is no cafe or candles as this place focuses on the plants. Prices, for example, Petunia night sky for 40p, Senetti for 70p and cordylines for £1.50. Staff deserve a special shout out – I got a bit carried away and didn’t realise that it was closing time (4pm) – they were happy to serve me and helped me to my car with the plants.
