ABOUT US

  • Established in the city for over 200 years, Howdens has everything you need to ensure your plants are perfect, your beds bloom, and your lawn is luscious.

    From the moment you step through the doors into the main shop with its inspiring displays and products through to the fabulous, outdoor plant area, you can’t fail to be inspired by our fantastic garden centre.

    Spend time in our outdoor plant area and take your pick from our quality plants. We have thousands of trees, shrubs, climbers and perennials, displayed with style and imagination.

    We offer a FIVE YEAR Plant Guarantee on all our hardy nursery plants. We pride ourselves on the excellent quality of our garden plants.
    If one of our hardy plants dies, return the plant to us, along with your receipt within five years of purchase. We will be happy to replace it or refund you

    The centre is home to an inspiring range of gifts for the home, inside and out, and a superb garden furniture and outdoor leisure department. Add to that our Craft Shop, Cook Shop and Clothing Shop and there’s something for everyone.

    Our Topiary Restaurant offers a delicious selection of meals and snacks. We have everything from a lazy breakfast to an indulgent afternoon tea, fabulous home baking to our fantastic daily specials. There are spacious seating areas both inside and out, relax and enjoy some fresh air on our sun terrace.

    Carole Baxter Meet and Greet 11th May

    BBC's Beechgrove Garden expert, Carole Baxter comes to Howdens on Saturday 11th May, 11am to 4pm

    She can offer advice on all aspects of the garden and gardening, whether you are a beginner or an expert.

    Carole has been interested in gardening since she was a child and used to get pocket money for picking out stones on her parents' one acre plot. After studying geography at university, Carole moved to Scotland and gardened while doing day release classes in amenity horticulture.

    She worked at the original Beechgrove Garden for 3 years as assistant and then head gardener before moving on to presenting on the BBC programme while still head gardener.
