Telawny Garden Centre is more than just a place that sells plants, its a shopping experience with something for all ages.
Like all garden centre's there is a wide selection of plants, the outside garden Planteria, half of which is under cover, is well organised and well kept and the prices are very reasonable.
Also outside is a large adventure playground, perfect for keeping the children entertained.
From the outside area you can also access the cafe, this is a lovely cafe that serves home made food. You can stop off for a cream tea to relax or have a full on meal, on Sundays they serve a sunday dinner. The food is good quality and you get a lot for your money. A Sunday dinner costs £5.95 and all the other items are fairly reasonably priced.
The indoor part of the garden centre is divided up into three platform levels, all joined together so its disabled friendly.
Platform one covers all the things you need to do with gardening, such as plant pots, compost, plant care and seeds.
There is also a section of artificial plants and flowers for those those that arent so green fingered like myself!
This platform also has the pet section, the garden centre doesnt sell pets but it does offer pet treats, beds and pet care items. They have quite a substantial range of outdoor bird houses, bird baths and bird foods.
Platform two is all gifts, a large selection is available including books, candles, orniments, clothing, toys and greetings cards. They also sell food items all of which is locally made produce. There is a wide selection and most of it is reasonably priced. The perfect place to pick up something different as a gift.
Platform three is always different depending on the time of the year! At Christmas time of year the whole platform is turned into a winter wonderland where you can buy any type of decoration you can imagine, it really is magical. It is also home to Santa's Grotto! Which is obvioulsy very popular with the children.
During the summer months the area is host to all things outdoors, bbq's, outdoor furniture and also furniture to use in conservatorys.
The staff at Trelawny are very helpful, they have different staff for each section that have a good understanding and knowledge on the items they are dealing with. The garden experts are brilliant and are able to advise what plants are suitable for your environment and which need less work looking after!
As the garden centre is spread out they have installed ramps in all areas in order to make is disabled friendly.
There are toilets in the cafe area including a baby changing area.
