The Millbrook Garden Company

With an established garden centre business in crowborough dating back some 20 years, Millbrook garden centre was opened by the same owners here in southfleet in 1993. The original site was a rotting cabbage field, Completely transformed for the centre's premises.

Easy to get to, the site is also historic: it is an important archaeological site and home to an ancient roman settlement. Books dating this fascinating history can be purchased at the centre. The huge covered and outside areas are filled with shrubs, seedlings, roses, small trees, herbaceous plants, herbs, bedding and ericaceous (peat-loving plants). In addition, the centre's houseplants help desk can help you choose from the extensive range available.

Garden equipment, tools and items for sale include pots, ceramics and statuary wooden tubs, sundials, wind chimes, garden furniture and fencing. The centre's landscaping team can help you design and plan the perfect outdoor room. The centre specialises in water features and aquatics with a separate area devoted to a good range of 'swallow' brand aquatics, rock-effect cascades and helpful leaflets on how to set up an indoor aquarium with full advice on filtration systems, plants and fish, fish food and other supplies.

There are many other features of this comprehensive garden centre, including a wild bird cage centre, stock of 'stormafit' outdoor clothing and accessories, giftware department and book shop. Closer to the Thames estuary, this link with the sea is highlighted in the onsite liners restaurant (open weekdays 9.30-4.30 sun 10.30-4, hot food from noon each day). Its rails, decking and nautical flavour are superbly evocative - when the weather permits, guests can sit outdoors on the promenade deck and admire the view.
