Coolings Behind the scenes Tour

Coolings Nursery

Thursday 5th May

Coolings are among the very few garden centres in the country that actually grow their own plants, producing over a million plants each year from their production nursery in Knockholt near Sevenoaks.  They do not grow for anyone else preferring to supply their own four centres in Knockholt, Bearsted and Wych Cross in Sussex.  The production nursery is not normally open to the public but April is the peak month for plant production and the nursery is full to bursting with plants.  Visitors will be guided around the glasshouses and see just how they produce over a million plants a year with the aid of potting machines, a robotic transplanter and some fantastic growers.

Tours last for just over an hour and of course there is a Cream Tea to enjoy at Arthurs restaurant either before and after the tours.

Tours are 11am & 2pm

Limited space available on the tours so book early so not to be disappointed
