Brookfields Garden Centre has been owned by local families from its early years as a Nursery; the land was purchased from Arthur Godfrey in the early 1960s by the current owners. Known to be a horticultural site for many decades, the business as it stands has grown exponentially from the days when there were just Greenhouses and an office. Keeping in line with lifestyle trends and the changing consumer needs we have extended not just in physical size but in developing the store to fulfil the requirements of our local community; our customers are the reason we build as we do.

Over the years we have developed our Coffee shop from a small counter offering hot drinks and snacks to the much-loved Arthur’s eatery (named after the family member who purchased the land) with its full range of meals and services; our Afternoon teas are legendary!

All our Gardening ranges have been finely tuned to ensure your gardening requirements are fulfilled, with horticulturally trained experts to guide and advise; our offer may well have grown into other categories such as homewares, gifts and food but the core of our business is all about the love of Gardening and spending time in it.

We pride ourselves on our Pets and Aquatics department, run by our in-house team not as a concession, as we passionately believe in managing every aspect of our centre- nobody knows our customers better than we do.

The Team at Brookfields are proud to collaborate with schools and community groups and regularly host charities to support them in their fund raising. Over the last decade we have raised over £15,000 as sponsors to many Charities, with the Nottinghamshire Hospice being at the centre of our fund raising on their behalf.

The very core values of Brookfields are that we strive to offer the best selection of products with excellence in customer service in an environment with creative flair and the warmest of welcomes.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
