The Garden Centre

The Garden Centre is going through a few changes - hope to be fully stocked soon, we are ready for click & collect.

Growing Concerns is a secret hidden between Victoria & Queen Elizabeth Parks next to the Hertford Union Canal. We started life as a local resident gardening club keen to improve the green environment and since securing our site at 2 Wick Lane the garden centre has grown from strength to strength.

We are working hard to get open again for customer browsing - waiting for remote card readers so we can serve you outside, the shop is just too small with no room for a queue anywhere!

So we will have 2 serving stations outside.

On the days we are open to the public the web shop will be closed so we don't over sell! It will open again as soon as the gates shut.
