Looking for Garden Plants in Swansea?
Come to the FCSBC. We have one of the best ranges of trees, garden plants and shrubs in Swansea and and many perennials. We also stock tulip bulbs, vegetables and herbs in the appropriate season.
Because our volunteers are local gardeners we can give you good advice bearing in mind our soil and weather conditions. We will tell you if a particular plant will not thrive in your plot.
Some of the stock is bought in from reputable suppliers, some is propagated from plants growing in the Botanical Gardens; all is tried and tested and cared for by volunteers.
Our prices are very competitive because we have no labour costs.
If you are starting a new garden, you will find our prices particularly attractive.
Our plants are small but they will grow on quickly once they are out of the pot.
For the some of the best plants shrubs in Swansea come and visit us.
All the profit from the Plant Shop is invested back into the three Parks of Botanical Gardens, Clyne Gardens and Plantasia. Over the past twenty years we have spent around £300,000 on improving the facilities in these parks.
FCSBC have been selling annual wildflower seeds for four seasons. From our experience, they are not easy to grow in Swansea’s wet clay soil. To give yourself the best chance, please consider the following:
Don’t be too disappointed if your wildflowers don’t look like the verges and roundabouts in Swansea. The Council has machines to do the work that you are going to be doing by hand. If in doubt, sow in a large container but still follow the advice above.
If this is all too much, why not come to the Botanical Gardens and enjoy the large wildflower bed we will be sowing on the slope facing the lake? In 2017 it bloomed from June to October with a changing colour palette every month.
But go on, give it a go! It is a very small price to pay for months of colour in your garden.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
