We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Castle Gardens has once again won the Garden Centre Association’s annual Christmas Competition. This makes us a seven-time national champion in the Garden Centre category and the whole team at The Gardens Group is delighted. It is a real team effort, everyone pulls together to bring these magical displays to life and create a truly magnificent experience for everyone who visits.

It is an absolute pleasure to be announcing this wonderful news, especially as there is still plenty of time to visit if you haven’t already.

We’re always extremely proud to support local initiatives that encourage the community, especially the younger generation, to get gardening, so last Friday Adam, Steve and Mark planted eight new trees on Stilby Road in Yeovil, as part of a new community project led by Westfield Community Association. The resident-run group, which is working to improve local communal green space, also enlisted the help of six Year 8 and 9 students from Westfield Academy, otherwise known as the Green Space Invaders, who all braved the cold weather and helped dig, plant and secure the trees on the plot, just up the road from their school.

As well as having a positive impact on our own wellbeing, beautiful green spaces are essential for wildlife too, so this project is definitely one to get behind. We hope the students enjoy looking after the trees and that the local community will feel a sense of pride in their new surroundings, drawing pleasure in watching the new plants blossom, grow and change throughout the seasons.

This year we’re giving you the opportunity to choose your Christmas tree from the warmth and comfort of your own home at any time of day or night. You can inspect the exact tree that you order, from every angle, and better still, it will be delivered direct to your door, straight from the dedicated grower.

Browse our online shopping gallery of Nordman Firs, choose from four sizes from 5ft to 8ft and then view each one individually, before selecting the perfect Christmas tree for 2016.

Christmas trees


When it comes to Christmas trees, you just can’t beat the real thing. With a huge variety on offer, many of which taking up to 10 years to grow just 2 metres tall, there is simply no comparison with an artificial tree. Bringing their beautiful fragrance and evergreen spikey pine needles into the home, Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without those little spikes getting stuck in your socks!

Whether it’s a traditional, luxurious or highly scented tree that you’re after, we have a large selection on offer, including the Norway Spruce, Nordmannn and Fraser Fir, all being delivered next week, and we’ll have regular fresh deliveries right up until 24 December.

When you’re done with your Christmas tree, we will even collect the ones bought from us and recycle them for mulching, composting and other environmental projects, designed to limit erosion and protect wildlife.
