Fulham Palace Garden Centre

Fulham Palace Garden Centre began in March 1985, when a young person from the charity Fairbridge wanted to set up a garden centre and gardening business.

The garden centre was first built and run by volunteers. In the early days, the idea was to provide work and training opportunities for young people. However, in order to compete with other garden centres and generate profits directly for the charity, the business was re-organised and re-developed.

Over the last few years, the Fulham Palace Garden Centre has undergone many improvements, yet has retained the friendly, intimate atmosphere enjoyed by customers over the past 26 years. This has enabled the garden centre to create even more inspiring displays and stock an enviable range of hand picked plants, pots, garden products, barbecues, garden furniture, house plants, cards and gifts.

The garden centre is now part of The Prince’s Trust following the merger with Fairbridge in January 2011, and its re-branding is now complete. A few more improvements are planned to further improve the garden centre over the next few years.

Situated at the edge of Bishop’s Park and a stone's throw from historic Fulham Palace, the garden centre is ideally placed to attract both local customers and passing visitors from this vibrant and garden loving community.

The business takes great care to employ staff who have a love of gardens and the knowledge to help with any queries, whether it is a plant for a shady spot or advice on controlling pests and diseases. Many have been with the garden centre for a long time and have a good understanding of the local area, whilst others bring experience and knowledge from further afield.

The garden centre is also supported by the Fairbridge Garden Society who help to raise the profile of the garden centre and create a sense of loyalty. Members organise a variety of trips and events throughout the year as well as raising money for The Prince's Trust Fairbridge programme.

All profits go the The Prince's Trust.
