Established in 1946, Frosts Garden Centre at
Woburn Sands is a family business which began as a cut flower
and tomato nursery. By 1962 it was one of the first garden
centres in the UK. Voted Garden Centre of the year in 1997/98,
the whole centre has an ambience of quality and style.
Set amongst landscaped grounds with
extensive water features there is ample free parking in shaded
areas. The Garden Room Restaurant serves home cooked meals and
snacks, delicious salads and its own recipe Salmon Fishcakes.
Frosts Garden Centres reputation is founded on the quality of
the plants on sale and its knowledgeable long serving staff.
The large garden plant area is well stocked with trees, shrubs,
hardy garden plants, herbs and seasonal bedding. All trees and
hardy garden plants are covered by Frosts two year guarantee.
There is a good selection of containers, garden ornaments,
landscape materials and specialist staff on hand to give tips
and advice. Beside the garden centre shop is the magnificent
Palm House which contains large specimen tropical plants, many
of which are obtained to fulfil contracts for interior planting
schemes all over the country. The garden centre shop itself
includes a large flower shop with both local and Interflora
delivery services. Displays of houseplants are a joy to behold
with orchids, azaleas and bougianvilleas nestling alongside
luscious green foliage plants. The Aquatic department
specialises in coldwater and tropical fish, aquaria, pumps and
self contained water features. All livestock is covered by a
seven day guarantee.
The extensive gift department provides
inspiration for all those seeking unusual presents for family

furniture is very well displayed, care advice and
guarantees are thoughtfully explained in helpful fact sheets
