Welcome to Stansted Park Garden Centre
Located in the South Downs National Park you will be hard pressed to find a Garden Centre in the UK in more picturesque surroundings.
A visit to the Garden Centre is not complete without visiting our neighbours at the Pavilion Tea Room, or a walk round the Historic Stansted House.
If local produce is your thing, our friends at the Farm shop can help with local produce, or enjoy a home baked Pizza before trying to conquer the Maze!
Relax on the lawn while the kids play on the new play centre, before a trip on the Railway....
A true day out which makes a change from the beach...

Britain's best-loved flower, roses are found in almost every garden in the country especially in Rowlands Castle.

Shading the greenhouse
Put simply, if you don't shade the greenhouse, you will be severely limited in the things you can grow in it. Most annuals and potted flowering plants will bleach and scorch.
