Digswell Nurseries is not just your run of the mill plant nursery! Over a sustained period of time, it had become apparent that within the local community there were few or no places for small children to let off steam in safe, peaceful and easily accessible surroundings, and above all, no places where this would be at no charge for parking or entry. As part of the Re-launch of Digswell Nurseries and our new image: Happygardeners.org, a brand new, purpose built play area has been constructed and is now open for the enjoyment of the local community! The play area features a central focal point of Climbing Frame, with Slide and a GIANT Noughts and Crosses Game! If that isn't enough to exhaust the little ones, there are a number of soft play cubes and shapes, to build towers up to the sky and jump about on; play houses and a football goal for the slightly older children! In a completely secure, gated, hedge lined location, the play area at Digswell Nurseries is perfect for a care free afternoon in the sun, whatever day of the week, either after school or during the summer holidays! But the play area is not the only thing on offer here at Digswell Nurseries! Refurbished early in 2009, the Flowerpot Coffee Shop can replenish all the lost energy, offering hot and cold drinks, confectionery, snacks and ice creams - all at a fraction of the cost of Buckstars! And you're not confined to purchasing from our coffee shop - why not bring a picnic, and spend some time relaxing in the sun whilst the children run riot?! All we ask is that you take your litter home with you. And when you're all shattered from your time in the Play Area, why not spend a little time perusing through the wide range of plants grown at Digswell Nurseries and offered for sale, whether it be bedding plants and herbaceous perennials you're looking for, or just some compost or bug killer, you can be guaranteed a good price and the knowledge you are buying fresh quality plants, grown here on site by the Happy Gardeners team! Digswell Nurseries falls under the umbrella of St John of God Hospitaller Services, a worldwide charity providing health and social care to a wide range of people right across the world. Here at Digswell Nurseries, we provide work based training for a wide range of people from the local community, and also to unemployed and the Probation Service. We're based on the B197 Great North Road, Welwyn Garden City, right next door to St Andrews Care Home. Digswell Nurseries are open between 10 and 5, Monday to Friday, and also at weekends during our busy periods. Need more information? Want to know how to contact us?
