Alton Garden Centre is proud to be one of the largest Garden Centres in Essex, offering a vast selection of garden requirements from a £15,000 log cabin down to a £1.99 packet of plant labels.
Opening in 1971 by owner and founder Derek Bunker, Alton Garden Centre has rapidly grown and established it's roots as a leading garden and home supplier since it's early beginnings. Previously called 'Alton Nurseries' by its original owner, the site was less than one acre and split into two with the Garden Centre taking the frontage and the back section dedicated to the original owners gardening produce such as tomatoes and geraniums.
After a relatively slow start selling mostly plants, the land on either side was acquired and gradually developed into the ten-acre site it is today. With the introduction of Derek’s three sons, Andy, Peter and Jay and a number of other relatives, it truly is a family business. Many of the members of staff have been with the company for a long time. Furthermore, many of the customers have been purchasing most of their garden requirements for over 40 years and their offspring are now also Alton’s Customers.
Conveniently located by the A127 in Wickford and having its own on-site restaurant, it's the ideal place to visit even with the little ones in tow.
