Gorgeous garden, fine for a young family
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a lovely 90 minutes here as a family of 5, we went to view the garden which is £3.50 to enter. Stunning, it looked beautiful in the sunshine. A number of paths set around a large pond. We kept our youngest in her pushchair as she was asleep when we got there, and the paths and steps were quite a challenge, but we coped. We spotted loads of dragonflies which the children loved, and we loved the collection of trees and plants. The nursery looked to have a great selection of plants, and if we were not on holiday I am sure we would have left with as many as we could fit in the boot!

Wonderful Colours
Jun 2021
The nursery is very well maintained with good descriptions and good choice. The Garden (cash only)is found at the bottom corner of the nursery. It is well terraced and very difficult for those with mobility problems . The well positioned benches were well received. The central lake seems fairly lifeless though we were delighted with the mating frogs. The layout of shrubs and flowers gave a very colourful vista and invited meditation. Well worth a visit if reasonably fit.

Good Garden, Great Garden Centre
Sep 2020
There are two elements here: a garden centre (attached to a very large nursery) and an attractive private garden.

The garden costs £3.50 to enter (RHS members 2 for 1) and is well worth a look. Although apparently a 4 acre site it is all on a very manageable level - you can imagine your own garden having these plants, it is not a grand garden of a public house. The exception is also the star of the garden: a very large pond at the base of what seems to be an old quarry. The best view is from the 'Anderson Shelter'. There are plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the views.

The garden centre is a gem. The plants are beautifully kept and there is enough variety that if I lived locally it would be very rare that I'd need to look anywhere else. And the prices are very reasonable (I guess that's the benefit if the nursery - you've cut out one set pf profit margins and transport costs). We got a tremendous haul for just £25. Any gardener within a reasonable distance needs to take a look at this place.

An oasis on the edge of Shrewsbury
Sep 2020
We visited the Dingle after a trip along the Severn on the Sabrina Boat. Only the riverside entrance is currently open to facilitate a one way system around the garden. We got there around midday and there were only a couple of other people there! It is a really beautiful and peaceful place which was landscaped by Percy Thrower - his house (which is now used by the organisers of the annual flower show) is just a short walk away. Not to be missed!

Beautiful gardens!

Idyllic, beautiful and relaxing gardens with lots of seating to take in the atmosphere. There is an extensive nursery to look around and for £3.50 you have access to the garden. Well worth it!

It was lovely looking around at all the different - so much to choose from! I was looking for plants for a particular section of the garden so decided to ask for advice from a member a staff who was really helpful.

Disappointed
Aug 2019
My husband rang the Dingle nursery. He wanted to buy me some large pots for a Birthday surprise. We have been visiting this nursery for many years. Therefore he was very surprised when a very rude female member of staff was off hand and unhelpful. She told him she had just returned from holiday and was unsure of what was on sale. And if he wanted to make a purchase he better go there himself! She was extremely unhelpful. We know on speaking to other people this is not an isolated experience. We used to love this garden centre. But won't bother again.

Hope to make another visit.
Aug 2019
The purpose of our visit was to enjoy the garden which we certainly did. Well surfaced paths and handrails where needed meant a comfortable stroll around and down to the lakes to see the beautiful trees and shrubs.
The choice and quality of the plants in the nursery was amazing and reasonably priced.
