It was raining when we visited Blooms garden centre in Swindon so we were glad to find that an unusually large portion of the outdoor plant area was under cover. Excellent for our British weather.

The plants were all healthy and the range was large. You are very likely to find exactly the plants you want at Blooms.

Blooms 2 year hardy plant guarantee All hardy plants are guaranteed for two years which is a good sign of their quality.

There were very few signs in the outdoor area so, although the range of plants is large, locating them is difficult. The garden centre has an outdoor plant information centre which is staffed in peak times of the gardening year.
