We are pleased to say the measures we have implemented to keep our customers and team safe and social distanced are working really well. A lot of preparation and hard work has gone into getting ready to reopen and enable you to feel as comfortable and at ease as is possible – from the moment you arrive right through to when you leave.
Here are some of the changes we have made:
Compost can be purchased from the car park, via our Drive-Thru service. Please head into the car park and follow the signs.
For those going into the garden centre you will take a trolley from the lower car park that has been sanitised ready for your use, and the entrance and exit have been clearly segregated and signposted.
At the entrance we have clear signs to keep everyone 2 metres apart as they arrive and a team member safely stood back count customers in and out, so that we can limit numbers when needed.
We ask you to use our hand-sanitiser as you enter
There is a one-way system clearly marked out with floor stickers to make it easier to stay socially distanced
Once inside you are able to help yourself to most products and plants as normal, we just ask you not to touch items that you don’t intend to buy.
In most departments, there is plenty of room to move around and feel safely distanced from others. Some areas such as our Bedding Plant Greenhouse may be more closely controlled during busy periods.
Once you have the items you need, you will take your place in the single queue for the tills following the floor stickers to keep people 2 metres apart. All tills have a perspex safety screen and we ask that you pay card (preferably contactless), Apple or Android Pay, or gift voucher only. You will push your trolley into the scanning zone then step back whilst your items are scanned.
Please make sure you read our FAQs either before you visit or at the entrance and we hope you have a comfortable visit.
