“A plant nursery that goes that one step further!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Blooming Marvellous is a great nursery for both the novice and professional gardener alike. The nursery is set out in a very helpful way so you will know what plant grows well in which aspect/soil type etc. As well as a good range of standard garden plants there is also a great selection for the plantsperson who is on the look out for something a bit different. The Staff are all very helpful and knowledgeable led by Alex who has a thorough and in depth knowledge of her profession and who is obviously passionate about plants! The monthly newsletter is full of useful information and often has special offers. Overall a great little nursery that is well worth a visit.

“IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

When my wife and I moved/retired to Winslow 3 years ago because of its good range of facilities for a small market town, we little realised what a gem of a garden centre we would have on our doorstep. This is a nursery that specialises in providing an excellent range of quality plants, excellent service and advice in an excellent location, which is much appreciated by a plantswoman such as my wife. The lawn area continues to shrink as the borders expand to accommodate more Blooming Marvellous plants and shrubs.

What makes this small garden centre stand out is the experience and passion of the staff. loads of advice, suggestions, great border design service and complete flexibility - will get plants in for you and really care that the customer gets what they want.

“Bloomin' Marvellous indeed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

BM is not the biggest garden centre in the world but let this not put you off. The service, expertise, and general advice is second to none and all given with a genuine enthusiasm for horticulture that is infectious.

“satisfied from Bucks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We first came across Alexia when she came to an NSPCC lunch complete with plants an amazingly enthusiastic lecture on planting. We then asked her to come and redesign our boarder which she did with huge energy and ideas. we are entering our second year and enjoying her clever use of colours and heights. Her gardening knowledge is fantastic and although her nursery is small, she is well worth going that extra mile to enjoy all the plants and shrubs she stocks.
