Snowy market place
Angela Slater
Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

Christmas Wonderworld

A Winter Wonderland Christmas spectacular in traditional, rustic or chic

Christmas is here at Hayes Garden World; it started at the beginning of October, and here is a little taster of this years 'must have' colours.

This year’s themes are:
‘Snowy Wonderland’ which is silver, white, turquoise, clay grey and clear.

Baubles and tree decorations
‘Peacock Garden’, a riot of jewel colours; turquoise, gold, purple and black.
‘Regal Splendour’ is burgundy, red, gold, silver and oyster.
‘Urban Chic’ has black and red as the main colours with a touch of white and silver.
Then there are the good old favourites of ‘Santa’s Workshop’ and the ‘Winter Woodland’ plus a huge range of Artificial Christmas Trees to choose from. We have lights in every size, colour and shape you could imagine, plus lighted figures for indoor and out. Santas, snowmen, deer and  mushrooms are just some of the acrylic figures on offer.

The Gonks have invaded and look set to be this years ‘must have’ item. Lemax lighted houses and winter scenes are also making a comeback. We also have a large selection of Yankee Candle Christmas staples and gift sets.

If you are stuck for gift ideas the Gift Department and Food Hall are packed with ideas for even the hardest to please of family and friends.

Poinsettias in shades of pink and cream as well as the traditional red will be available from mid November from the Houseplant Department. If making your own table decoration is a bit daunting, or you want a living gift then we will have planted Christmas arrangements available from the beginning of December.
