Facilities & Services

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, some of our facilities & services below may have changed or ceased to conform to Government guidelines.

 

FREE Car Park

Our 300 space car park is free for our customers to use.  There are wider spaces dedicated for parent & child parking and disabled spaces located near the entrance to the Garden Centre for our less mobile customers.

 

Wheelchair Use & Accessibility

We have wheelchairs available for our customers to use.  These are available on a first come first served basis and therefore cannot be booked. To avoid disappointment, we suggest that where and possible, wheelchair owners should bring their own.  Our Centre is wheelchair accessible throughout and we have a spacious disabled toilet facility located next to our restaurant. We also have special trolley attachments, designed to fit most standard wheelchairs.

 

Dogs

We welcome dogs into the Garden Centre but stress that the owners are completely responsible for them whilst here.  Dogs are not allowed in the restaurant but we have the Dog House which is a garden building situated just outside the restaurant where dogs and their owners can sit and enjoy something delicious from the restaurant. During the summer months, they are also very welcome in our outdoor seating area.

 

Carrier Bag Charge

There is now a 10p bag charge. Our carrier bags are bio-degradable so are kind to the environment.

 

Toilets & Baby Change

Our toilet facilities are located next to our restaurant.  There is a spacious Baby Change facility, large enough for parents and small children.  We have complimentary nappies, wipes and nappy bags available should you need them.  Please ask at the Information Desk if you require any of these.

 

Children’s Outdoor Activity Area

Our brightly coloured outdoor children’s activity area is designed with pre-school age children in mind.  It is the perfect place for mums, dads, nans & granddads to sit and relax whilst the little ones play in the giant sand pit, have a noughts & crosses battle or see who can score the highest in a game of bean bag toss.  There is also a large chalk board for budding artists to practice their next masterpiece. Plenty of seating in the form of wooden picnic benches and tables and comfy Arondeck chairs is available and there are also cushions & picnic blankets available for customers to use. And because of our wonderfully unpredictable British weather, we have bottles of sun cream available for sale should you get caught out! https://poplars.co.uk/little-poplars-outdoor-area/

 

Delivery Service

Poplars offers a local delivery service within 10 miles of Toddington or further by arrangement. There is a charge per delivery but once you have paid this you can put what you want onto the van (Subject to space and weight).

To ensure the safety of our drivers, all deliveries must be paid for prior to delivery.

We do not have a specific day for a set area; we try to be as flexible as possible and fit in with our customer needs

 

Carry To Car Service

We are always readily available to assist you in getting your purchases safely to your car. Please ask a member of staff should you need any help.

So whether you need to know what to plant where or where to plant what, from larger garden projects to small outside spaces, our helpful and friendly staff are always happy to help.
