Our vibrant and hugely popular retail visitor attraction is now considered to be one of the top independent Garden Centres in Scotland. We just know you will find everything you would expect and a whole lot more. You’ll find ideas, inspiration and lots of helpful advice from friendly gardening experts.

Enjoy looking at our seed collections, plants, compost, fertilisers, planters, bird care barbecues, and garden furniture. You will be amazed by the choice. We also have a great range of quality gifts, cards, books and crafts.

Our Christmas display is regarded as finest in the North East of Scotland, and Father Xmas is always there to greet you.

The Potting Shed Coffee shop has over 150 seats and is home to some of the finest and freshest food in Scotland.  Our customers just keep coming back time and time again to enjoy. We look forward to seeing you.
