LOCKDOWN #2: The government has recognised the positive benefits of gardening to everyone’s mental and physical wellbeing. As such, we are able to stay open throughout lockdown. All departments are fully open including our aquatics department and Christmas department.
CAFE: Our cafe is closed and currently we do not have any catering facilities on site.
Our Covid-secure processes
In accordance with government guidelines we have strict COVID-secure measures in place to ensure the safety of our team members and our customers. Your visit to us will be as follows:
All visitors over the age of 11 must wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth whilst shopping unless they are exempt under the government guidance.
Hand sanitiser is provided at the entrance and we sanitise trolleys and baskets before use. Trolleys and baskets are kept at the entrance for this reason.
Once in store you will follow a one way system, this takes you through our books, houseplants, cards and tool area to emerge into the plant area. You are able to wander freely in the plant area but MUST stay more than 2 metres away from all others at all times.
We will be retaining the 2 metre distancing throughout the store.
To get to the exit you will need to walk through the plant area and enter our lower shop passing compost, fertilisers, watering equipment, chemicals, wild birdcare, pet supplies and seeds.
Floor markers show the distancing required in the till queue.
Once at the till you will be asked to park your trolley in a designated bay and then step back. Our staff will scan your goods and call you forward when they are ready to take payment. You will then take your trolley and leave.
We would prefer you to pay for your goods with contactless card payment where possible. the new limit is £45 for contactless payment and we accept Apple Pay.
Once you have emptied your trolley please return it to the collection bay so it can be sanitised before the next user.
Our public toilets are now open but please use sanitiser before entering and wash your hands before leaving.
We appreciate your patience and understanding through these difficult times.
