Welcome to Skelton Garden Centre
Welcome to the Skelton Garden Centre website. We are a friendly family run business conveniently located on the A19 just off the York outer ring road at Skelton. We have a fully stocked garden shop with a wide range of trees, shrubs and perennials in addition to seasonal bedding, planted containers and houseplants. These include Japanese maples and herbaceous perennials.
We have a giftshop with a large range of contemporary, stylish and quirky homewares, accessories and gift ideas, as well as a café offering homemade hot and cold lunches and snacks.
With the sunnier and warmer weather our bedding packs and basket plants are now in stock and are displaying beautiful flowers in an array of vibrant colours. We have several seasonal plant offers running to take advantage of so please pop in and shop with us soon!
We stock a large selection of glazed and terracotta pots in all shapes, colours and sizes. We also have a range of quality garden ornaments, animals and planters made from reconstituted stone/concrete. The figures especially make great gifts for friends and family. Pop in to the Garden Centre to see our full range of pots and statuary.
At the Garden Centre we have a large, well-stocked gift shop where you can find anything from elegant wall planters, quirky tongue-in-cheek signs and realistic faux silk flowers to children's toys and games, unusual wall art and delicately soft scarves and throws.
But if you don't live close enough to pop in - don't worry as we have our full collection online available to purchase at our Online Boutique Simply Add Style.
Between the months of April & September we stock high quality lawn turf. We order in our turf weekly so it is as fresh as possible when it arrives on Saturday morning.
We have stocked turf for several years and have always offered the highest quality and freshest turf available. Our turf is grown locally and is available for sale as soon as possible after it is cut to guarantee its freshness.
Our café is situated towards the rear of the Garden Centre and seats 48 in comfortable light and airy surroundings, including an outdoor covered area which makes a pleasant setting in suitable weather.
The café offers a sumptuous range of hot and cold sandwiches, soup and delicious quiches, as well as homemade cakes and scones. All our food is freshly prepared on the premises and made to order.
We are particularly proud of our range of Japanese Maples and they are something we have specialised in since Skelton Garden Centre began. Our staff will be able to help you choose the perfect specimen for your garden and give you helpful tips and advice on how to care for them.
Japanese Maples, also known as Acers, are actually surprisingly easy to care for and can be pruned back gently to achieve your desired shape. They come in a huge range of fabulous colours, sizes and leaf shapes. We are certain to have a variety which will complement any garden!
Outside in the plant area you will find an extensive range of trees, shrubs, roses and herbaceous perennials with many unusual and rare varieties.
We are particularly proud of the fact that many of our shrubs and perennials are grown here on our nursery which means they are well suited to local weather conditions. In addition we have extensive contacts across the UK and Europe; we can be certain we'll find what you're looking for!
Roses make a beautifully vibrant and colourful addition to any garden. As a mainstay of summer colour, their large showy blooms and delicate fragrance make them particularly rewarding shrubs to grow. They are available in many different colours and habitats, from small compact plants to ramblers and climbing specimens.
