Christmas market stalls at Hayes Garden World
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

Festive Christmas Market At Hayes

Enjoy a mulled wine and bratwurst at our European-style market

Take a wander outside into the nursery and look at our fresh ‘low needle drop’ Christmas trees, the festive hollies and a huge range of plants all guaranteed to bring winter colour and interest to your garden. Try the evergreen Sarcocca, Christmas Box, for its compact habit and delicious scent over the winter, the Cornus for its vibrant red stems, which look fantastic with a dusting of frost or the Mahonia which smells of Lily of the Valley.

After you’ve pondered the pleasure of plants take a look at our take on a European market located at the back of the nursery underneath the canopy. Here you can buy a cosy Christmas jumper or a nice soft cushion. If all that shopping has left you a little jaded why not refresh with a restorative mulled wine and bratwurst.

Don’t forget the stall selling Christmas ales, after all Santa will need something to wash all those mince pies down with! The stalls are located next to our outside eatery which serves up hot drinks and snacks if you don’t want to face the crowds dining upstairs in our Four Seasons Terrace Café.

Just click the link to go to the Events page to see when Santa's Grotto is open; it is located next to the stalls at the back of the nursery so why not treat your youngsters to a visit to Santa where they can tell him what they want for Christmas and get a lovely present before he flies off back to the North Pole to start the serious business of delivering Christmas gifts to all the little girls and boys.

Don’t forget to visit our Christmas department for everything you need to give your home a warm welcoming festive ambience. There are more gifts inside the store for young and old, gardeners and non-gardeners and everyone in-between.
