At Alton Garden Centre we believe in making a good first impression. Many of our customers hear about us for the first time when our magazine gets put through their letterbox, and we carry this belief in a good first impression with us into our print. All of our magazines are prepared to the highest quality, showcasing the best products around and introducing new and existing customers to exciting developments in the shop. Pages upon pages of inspired ideas to help everyone make the most of their garden space, news on BBQ events and the latest product ranges from our wonderful suppliers. Voucher pages hide sizzlingly sweet deals for use in-store, so there's always a good reason to have a flick through; you never know when you're going to find the best discount around for that gardening fork you've had your eye on! We produce and distribute three different seasonal magazines throughout the year: our Beautiful Gardens magazine (also known as the spring magazine), Beautiful Summer magazine, and the fun and festive Beautiful Christmas magazine. Each of these publications carries their own product ranges and showcases, but they all share our appreciation for showing off only the very best.
Our wide range of top-quality plants, combined with the depth of knowledge and expertise offered by our Plant Advice team means you can be confident that you are buying the right plants for your needs. Come and explore our bedding perennials and alpines now!
