Hayes Garden World nursery
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

Looking good

STORE NOW OPEN Monday - Friday 10:00 - 4:00

Lockdown doesn’t mean living in a wilderness

If you are planning on visiting the store please click here to read the 'Safe Shopping' guidelines.

As most of us have a lot of time on our hands and the weather is starting to improve there is ample opportunity to update our outdoor living space. A lot of garden centres are offering a Personal Shopper service and we are no different. We still have a great selection of garden plants and sundries available for home delivery in the local area, between Keswick and Kendal. Along with our 'Personal Shopper' service we are now doing 'Click & Collect', please allow 1 hour from processing payment; click here for details.

Don't forget our Barbecue Shop is one of the largest in the UK so call them for advice and to place your order for barbecues, wood pellet grills, accessories, fuel, rubs and sauces.

The Hayes Internet is still operating normally with almost everything on the website available, although there is a slight delay on a small number of products. If you have any queries please email through the ‘Contact Us’ page, include your phone number and we will get back to you as soon as possible so please bear with us, as you can appreciate we are extremely busy in these unusual circumstances we are all experiencing.
