... Neither of us are gardening experts but with a bit of advice from parents, we trundled off to Haskins to take a look at what they had on offer. There are four Haskins garden centres around, but the one we visit is in Ferndown, Dorset. Others are situated in Southampton, Angmering, and Copthorne. ... Read review

"...parents, we trundled off to Haskins to take a look at what they had on offer. There are four Haskins garden centres around, but the one we visit is in Ferndown, Dorset. Others are situated in Southampton, Angmering, and Copthorne. They started off as a family business which still exists today in 1882. Three out of the four stores are also attached to a Hobbycraft store as well. As you can imagine the site itself is huge, with ample free car parking ..." Read review

Haskins - love it or hate it?

AdvantagesMany on-site amenities.

DisadvantagesHigh prices - layout of plants not the best.

"Haskins is probably Dorset's most popular Garden Centre. It has many factors in its favour.

Very Expensive

AdvantagesHobbycraft store on same sight

DisadvantagesVery Very Expensive

"Haskins Garden Centres Most of the Haskins Garden Centres are based in and around the south of England, my local store is in Longham (which is in between Bournemouth and Wimborne in Dorset).

probably the best

Advantageslarge range of stock

Disadvantageshigh prices

"...plants I have purcased frrm Haskins have been of the best quality with no problems such as vine weevils. The staff are always very helpful and the range of plants stocked is far better than other garden cantres in the area. The staff will also help locate plants and even order them in if possible. Even though the prices are high it is not the most expensive in the area, this label would go to Stewarts garden centre, another very good garden centre ..." Read review

Haskin's - Good sized and good selection

Advantagesgood sized store, large outside area, cafe, near-by

Disadvantagespoorly educated staff, outside not maintained properly

"Went to Haskin's near Longham for the first time on Saturday (18th Aug 07) as it was miserable outside and I wanted some seeds to plant and occupy myself for the day. The store is quite big and there is plenty of plants and garden tools to be distracted over. Initally I was quite impressed. Inside, the plants were well organised and tidy. Outside, however, was a different matter. Once you go though the back where the outside area is, quite a lot of ..." Read review
