Bernaville Nurseries : Exeter, Devon

Whilst on the way home from my birthday trip to RHS Rosemoor we came across a garden centre that i hadn't been in before so of course i had to stop and take a look! On arrival we were greeted by this beautiful fountain in the car park. Parking was easy and there was plenty of space which is always a plus point when visiting garden centres.

When we went in i was surprised to find just how big the place was. It had a very large indoor space jam packed with all sorts of gifts, pet care items, conservatory furniture and more. The displays were well presented and there was plenty of room to move around without it feeling too cramped which often it can in garden centres that try to have a wide variety of stock.

I ventured outside to the plant displays and found a fantastic selection, really well displayed and the layout was well sign posted so it was easy to find all the different plants. I was quite impressed with the prices too which i felt were reasonable.

I hadn't intended to purchase anything as i was saving myself for the weekend when i get to go spend my birthday voucher at one of my favourite local garden centres but this little beauty caught my eye. I've never seen this Alpine plant before 'Aquilegia Blue & White' at just £1.99 i couldn't walk by so it has come home with me! I need to research it this evening to find out where in the courtyard it is best suited to live.

Overall i was very pleased with Bernaville Nurseries and would highly recommend going for a visit.
