About Us

The cafe and shop at Preston Garden Centre

Preston Garden Centre is a unique, family run garden centre and plant centre in east Kent, specialising in growing ornamental and woodland trees, large specimen shrubs, hedging and screening plants including larger evergreens.

The garden centre principally sells plants and takes pride in presenting plant displays in meticulously kept shade structures, glasshouses and display areas. We also have benches and water features around as well as a new display garden to make the garden centre an attractive and relaxing place to be.

What we do

We are not only trees, of course. We also have a full range of feature plants and garden plants and shrubsto complement our trees. These include palms, bamboos, olives, tree ferns and maples from around the world in sizes from a couple of feet tall to giants for instant effect planting. We also grow many garden shrubs in the larger 10 litre size pots as well as climbers on trellises.There is a great selection of shrubs, herbaceous plants, herbs and a full range of composts.

In addition to our plants we stock pots and containers, Indian antiques, slate monoliths and water features and carved granite temples and bird baths .

Brief history

Preston Garden Centre was a wholesale flower salad and vegetable garden centre for 60 years from the 1930s and still has 1000s of square feet of old mobile and fixed glasshouses which have been adapted since 1998 to a highly individual garden centre and garden centre business, open 7 days a week and delivering all over the south east.


In addition to selling plants, we offer other services such as advice and assistance in selecting plants, a tree planting service in east and mid Kent, and free information leaflets on care of certain plant groups. We offer a weekly, countywide delivery service.
