CORACHIE GARDEN CENTRE
We have been growing quality plants for over 20 years and are proud to claim that about 70% of our wide range of shrubs & plants at the Centre are Scottish grown.
We stock over 100 varieties of Clematis and other climbers, so we are sure that you will find just what you’re looking for. Too much choice? Then our friendly staff are always on hand to help you choose the right one. We carry a good range of ornamental & fruit trees, all at least 5ft high. We stocked almost 200 varieties of herbaceous perennials in 2009. Our range of plants which include rhododendrons, azaleas, specimen conifers, roses, hedging, alpines and grasses are all of the highest quality. We have a wide variety of soft fruit including Blueberries & Raspberries as they thrive here in the Argyll climate. We carry a good range of seasonal bedding, Summer & Winter, bulbs and vegetables.
In the polytunnel, as well as plants, you will find we have many types of compost from peat-based to peat-free and specialist types such as bonsai & cactus. There are also tree stakes, trellis, self contained water features, frost resistant outdoor pots & ornaments.
An extensive range of gardening sundries can be found in our shop such as stainless steel garden tools, organic & non-organic fertilisers & pesticides, gloves, wildlife care, gifts, cards & seeds including a children’s range linked to the National Curriculum.
We also have our own gift vouchers, any value from £1, to spend here at the plant centre.
We have a large car park with disabled access, and a large grassed area for picnics, ball games etc. There is also a children’s play area with a clubhouse, swings, slide & fireman’s pole.
During the Summer, on weekends & school holidays, we have a bouncy castle outside, weather permitting. During the Winter the bouncy castle is inside the polytunnel, so you can have a bounce around whatever the weather!
Honeysuckle Coffee Shop & Take-away
We serve freshly made tea, coffee, hot chocolate & homemade soup. Our range of filled rolls are made on the premises

We also sell cold drinks & ice-cream.
