Heeley City Farm

Garden Centre

The region's only peat-free garden centre is here in Heeley!

We have a wide range of top quality plants, often at much lower prices than many bigger garden centres. Find a friendly face for some advice on your gardening needs. Since our Garden Centre is also open to volunteers we grow expert horticulturalists as well as plants!

All the profits from anything sold in the Garden Centre are used to continue funding our many projects and feeding the farm's animals.

The garden centre is staffed:

  • Summer (end March to end October) - 9am to 5pm
  • Winter (end October to end March) - 9am to 4pm

Outside of these times, it is open subject to the availability of volunteers.  Should the Garden centre be open but un-staffed, you can pay at the Cafe.

Don't forget we sell Gift Vouchers (£5 and £10) that can be used in the Garden Centre, a great gift for the gardener in your life.

From summer and winter bedding plants, vegetables and herbs, to spring bulbs, shrubs and hardy perennials,the garden centre sells a range of plants to suit all conditions.

We now stock Rivelin Wild Bird Food!
