GFK - Green Fingered Kids Scheme

This ‘home grown’ scheme, which was first established at the Garden Centre in 2005. At certain times of the year, we run voucher schemes which allow our customers to collect vouchers with purchases that are made in store. These vouchers can then be exchanged by the school for credits to spend on gardening equipment and plants.
The Previous 10 years has seen a great response from schools, with membership now reaching well over 200 across an area that covers 3 counties allowing access for nearly 70,000 school children to horticulture and all that it can bring to their education.

News - January 2016

Wyevale Garden Centres Acquisition of Woodcote Green
The team at Woodcote Green have been touched by so many kind words of support from customers following the sale of the business to Wyevale Garden Centre (WGC) on the 15th January. It goes without saying that WGC are excited to have purchased one of the UK’s most dynamic garden centres.
Woodcote Green has grown over the years and its philosophy of innovation and development will continue under the new ownership. Horticulture will remain central to the future businesses plans and the famous home grown ranges will remain and continue to be developed. So it is very much business as usual with the centre continuing to be run by the existing management team of Phil Barnden, Jon Hoare and Andy Rollinson. We are extremely pleased that all our staff will be staying and together we are very excited about the future. We, along with Wyevale Garden Centres, are determined to continue the legacy of offering great quality and value along with exceptional customer service.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept Wyevale 'The Garden Club' cards, gift cards or vouchers. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
