About Henry Street Garden Centre

You’d expect us to be eco-friendly…

And of course we are, in a big way!

Trees, plants and flowers are nature’s filters for processing carbon dioxide, so we really are doing our bit for the planet by growing vast numbers of them here at Henry Street Garden Centre.

But it doesn’t stop there. On-site here (and at home) we all try to keep everything we do as green as possible to reduce our impact on the environment. For example as part of our environmental policy we:


  • Water all our plants with recycled rainwater

  • Make all green waste into compost

  • Recycle all paper, card and plastic

  • All our light fittings are low energy LEDs

  • We encourage our staff and customers to assist us by reducing their own waste burden.

  • We will support local farmers, growers and suppliers where possible

We will minimise the use of all materials and energy and not use any materials derived from endangered species or environments.


We are currently installing 383kw of solar panels on the roofs of our buildings to supply the majority of our electrical power saving, over 100 tonnes of CO2 every year

Did you know that indoor plants not only look beautiful but also help the environment?

They make the air cleaner – and because they’re friendly and good to look at, as a bonus, they make you feel happier!

Your own lawn, plants, flowers and trees all help to soak up carbon dioxide, but you can easily improve your green credentials by composting and using rainwater.

And you’ll also save money!

We’ve put together a list of our top 10 ground cover plants.


Knowing how to keep your lawn looking healthy even when it’s dry is important if you want to keep your lawn in good shape during long, hot and dry weather spells.
