So what do you guys really think?

It’s always great to get feedback from our customers, and good or bad, they all help to make us try that little bit harder.

Now I’m a bit cynical and I often take reviews with a pinch of salt! But with hand on heart, these are honest, unadulterated comments from some of our many happy customers…

Would just like to say what an amazing transformation you have made to the site, and you have covered all aspects of the Garden Centre, all our questions are answered and any help is always available. You have such a wonderful collection of shrubs, trees and plants. It has made such a great impact to our community.

— Julie, Rothwell
Ian and Gary have both been fantastic - advising which plants to choose for our new garden, delivering plants and trees. Every plant I have bought from them have been the best quality and I’m looking forward to seeing them bloom in the spring!
— Georgina, Arthingworth
I work in a garden centre and as it’s part of a chain I find the plants ordinary and run of the mill. If we don’t have what a customer wants then I have no hesitation in recommending The Plant Man as it’s the place I go to for excellent quality, service and something a little different.
— Jan, Countesthorpe
A fantastic place to visit for a great choice of plants at great prices. Also unlike other garden centres this one is all about the plants. My favourite place to go.
— Sam, Broughton Astley
I think you are a great place to visit, always lots of seasonal plants available and love the quirky garden ornaments. I don’t think I have ever been over to your garden place and bought nothing, always come home with something. Prices and plants are always amazing too
— Debbie, Oundle
We’ve used The Plant Man for the past 4 years and would not go anywhere else for our gardening needs. The products are top quality but the prices are amazing and Gary & Ian and their team are always so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and happy to give their honest advice no matter how silly our questions are! 1st choice for fantastic value Christmas trees delivered to our door too
— Rebecca, Kibworth
Fantastic service, amazing prices, everyone is so knowledgeable and helpful - we love to keep this place a secret but you deserve every bit of praise. Roses are fantastic and much better service that the ‘big boys’. 5 stars!
— Bev, Oadby
I have visited the plant man on several occasions and have always found their friendly staff most helpful and informative. Their Facebook page is also well maintained and read regularly by them; I have asked them to save items for me and they always respond fairly quickly and my goods have always been put aside for me to collect.
Their prices are very competitive and their plants are always in lovely condition.
I recommend them.
— Teresa, Leicester
We travelled over from Hinckley based on Facebook and friend recommendations. So very glad we did, fabulous service good value for money and so nice to find a friendly non conglomerate company. Please don’t change!!
— Gillian, Hinckley
I’ve been going to The Plant Man since Ian opened its doors. Honestly the best place for plants at the best prices! Also fab for plant info and an all round fab team! All they need now is a tea room❤️
— Amanda, Desborough
I live in Suffolk but my daughter took me to yours and its fantastic. So now every time I visit her I try to make a visit to you. Thoroughly recommend quality, price and helpfulness. 😁
— Jayne, Suffolk
I picked a dozen apples this morning from the Braeburn apple tree I bought from The Plantman 2.5 years ago. Also had lovely plums and cherries this year and last year from the trees I bought there! Most of my plants come from The Plantman and they have all grown beautifully. I love visiting the plant centre. Excellent advice and customer service!
— Lara, Market Harborough
We cannot praise this special place highly enough. Everyone is so friendly and personable. Ian & Gary are so helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble and advise comes with a smile. Our garden is getting better each season. Thank you Plant Men ( and ladies) 😂😂
— Di & Dave, Stoke Albany
A fantastic place and fantastic prices always happy to help with anything. Like for instance I brought a vienetta Clematis but when it flowered a week later it wasn’t one as been labelled wrong by the grower Ian was more then happy to get me a replacement.
— Jo, Barton Seagrave, Kettering
A little gem, great plants, great people, great service! A great variety of good quality plants, and service with a smile.
My absolute “go to” garden centre
— Kathleen, Great Oakley
I never go anywhere else for plants now since visiting Plant Man. They are always very helpful and when my husband passed away were very helpful in selecting a tree to plant at his local Golf Club I would highly recommend them. 😄🌲
— Linda, Kettering
Plants are brilliant and often different selection than anywhere else. My neighbour also now visits as we are quite competitive with our gardens and she was impressed by the quality as well. Staff are very helpful and hopefully they will find the different shrubs I’m searching for.
— Diane, Countesthorpe
You guys are always so good to help, and your roses are just amazing, and amazing value.
I will always recommend you.
— Maria, Market Harborough
Gary Colledge is amazing !
I’ve been shopping here for 5 years and can honestly say I’ve never been disappointed with the plants or the advice. Plants are great value but it’s the service that sets them apart. It’s a great team but I have to single Gary Colledge out as he is always so friendly, helpful, has an incredible knowledge and nothing is ever too much trouble.
That man deserves a stonking big payrise.
— Gary Colledge, Rugby
This Garden Centre is a true Gardeners delight. No coffee shop trying to grab your extra pound, no shops selling tat you really don’t need, just knowledgeable people with a true passion for plants. Also THE best prices around for healthy looking plants. I don’t shop anywhere else!
— Ali, Middleton
Love coming to the plant man. The staff are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. There is always a wide variety of plants, which are always excellent quality, the prices are very reasonable.

Would recommend!

Brilliant value. Good healthy plants that you can’t always find elsewhere. Bought roses at the back end of the season so healthy and such a good price
— Pam, Littlethorpe
What I love is that it’s a proper garden centre with good plants, people who can answer your questions and give advice, a definite “ NO” to the tea shop, always good to stand out from the crowd and be different!💐🥀
— Rosemary, Leicester
You always get the best plants at the best value at Plant Man. Huge variety of plants on offer .Super friendly staff who know their stuff. They also deliver and it’s not just plants and trees sold there it’s pots, ornaments, bulbs ,composts and much more. They have a loyalty scheme too. Well worth a visit. :)
— Liz, Desborough
I have known Ian for about 10 years and watched his passion and enthusiasm go from strength to strength. The quality of the plants far exceeds other garden centres, friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff. Would recommend for any size planting projects. We live in Whetstone and absolutely travel the distance to see Ian and his team!!
— Priti & Dick, Whetstone
I bought a small shrub which died after several weeks, despite careful watering. On returning it there was no quibble on replacing it. Great customer service! So I bought lots more plants! It’s difficult to resist!
— Sheila, Market Harborough
Have had a lot of plants from there and I can say we had a great rapport with helpful staff
— John, Northampton
The best Garden Centre in the Midlands!🌳
— George, Market Harborough
Was told about The Plant Man a couple of years ago and couldn’t believe we hadn’t known about this wonderful Nursery before! The prices are always competitive and normally way cheaper than the bigger commercial Nurseries and they have a wide range of really healthy plants that are all so tempting to buy. My friend has even bought me Vouchers for my birthday as she knows how much I like to visit!!! Can’t wait for Spring time and the start of yet another great gardening year!
— Rusty, Market Harborough
Plants in the best condition, excellent price, unstinting advice freely show pony with all the other stuff....can’t wait for next year!
— Boris, Wilbarston
Very helpful and knowledgeable. Plants are very good at a great price and with a loyalty scheme as well
— Cherry, Market Harborough
Always a brilliant selection of seasonal healthy plants, and knowledgeable staff who are friendly and willing to help. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the new growing season!
— Shirley, Market Harborough
Would just like to thank you guys for all your help and good advice given. My garden has been a huge challenge due to its size . Can’t wait for the spring to see the fruits of our labour. Although I’m sure I will still need a weekly visit!
— Jacqueline, Great Oxendon
What can we say? Ian, Gary and team are so helpful and knowledgeable. No matter how busy, they will always give sound advice and have often gone the extra mile for us. We are so happy with all the wonderful plants we’ve had from them that have transformed our garden which gives us so much pleasure. Thank you all. We hope you have a restful Christmas and a very successful new year.
— Ann & John, Rothwell
The best plants, the best prices, great range of garden accessories and the service is second to none. Can’t be beaten.
— Hilary, Market Harborough
We got our Christmas tree from The Plant Man this year, for the first time and we’re delighted with it. It was a very good price and looks great!
I’ve been buying plants from The Plant Man since it opened and they’ve been consistently good quality. My Sorbaria Sem has been brilliant and I’ve made a couple of other plants from it (absolute bargain!). I’m a gardening novice so I always need to ask about the plants so I go to the Plant Man because they know what they’re talking about!
— Sarah, Weldon
Simply the best nursery, helpful advice, beautiful stock & good value. Thank you plant man.
— Yvonne, Ashby Magna.
The Plantman was recommended by my neighbour who is a retired head gardener from a well known garden.
I was not disappointed. The plants are good quality, plenty of variety and well priced. And plant knowledge is encyclopaedic!
When I saw a huge herb pot complete with herbs, at the nursery, I asked was it for sale. Anywhere else, a display piece would not be. Not only did the Plantman deliver, but installed and planted it up. It is now the centre piece of my herb garden.
For my latest project, they sourced 40 bare root roses and I am delighted with the quality and the price.
The Plantman is my first port of call when I am looking for something in particular and doing a new project in the garden.

— Liisa, Brixworth
The Plant Man has very quickly become a regular and established favourite place to visit for good, honest, trustworthy service and advice, offering a wide variety of excellent quality plants, shrubs, trees, containers and pots, compost and garden accessories. Ian and Gary are genuinely enthusiastic about all they do and alongside every member of their Team, are friendly and willing to help, going above and beyond to provide a service rarely found in this day and age. A place of plant filled wonderfulness – a visit is highly recommended - try it, you will surely most definitely like it!
— Shirley & Peter, Desborough
The 🌿 plant man the place to get quality plants. Gifts and-more,staff are always happy to help.
— Susan, Lubenham
I love the family feel, the helpful staff and of course the prices and good quality of the plants. The view of the surrounding countryside makes every visit a pleasure.
— Maria Tere, Burton Latimer
A very friendly, knowledgeable staff make it a lovely place to visit, the plants are beautiful and excellent value for money. Over the last few years I’ve filled my garden, only shopping at this place. Superb place..... just be aware the owner has a twin so don’t worry if you think you’re seeing double.
— Rachael, Desborough
Been coming to you for years always fantastic service you have helped me so many times! Happy Christmas 🎄 Can’t wait for next years garden feature.
