The Abercorn Garden Factory - About Us

The Garden Factory website and Abercorn Plant and Garden Centre have joined forces to offer the best of both worlds to our local and nationwide customers. This gives our local customers access to all of the products that we offer online, as well as to those we sell in our physical Abercorn Garden Centre which is based in Chelmsford, Essex.

Abercorn Plant and Garden Centre has been part of the Chelmsford community for over 60 years, offering expert gardening advice to complement the vast range of gardening and landscaping products that we sell both online and in store.

If you are local to Abercorn (within roughly an eight-mile radius of our site in Beehive Lane, Chelmsford), please select "ONLINE LOCAL DELIVERY" when you add items to your basket. Your delivery will be made by our own driver either on a Tuesday or Friday, depending on when you place your order. If you live further afield, please select "NATIONWIDE DELIVERY", at which point your delivery costs (and whether we can deliver locally using our own driver) will be flagged as soon as you input your post-code. (Please note that our selection of composts and bagged aggregates are NOT available for nationwide delivery.)

Please note that some items that are available for home delivery are not stocked at the Garden Centre and are despatched either from our storage facility or direct from our manufacturing partners. Some of these products have a longer lead-time and varying delivery charges. These charges are stated on the product page and will be clearly visible in your shopping basket before payment is required.

About Us

The Abercorn Garden Factory Difference

We try our best to recycle boxes and packaging from Abercorn Plant and Garden Centre. It's our way of doing a bit for the planet and it helps keep prices low. Sometimes it doesn't look so pretty, but what matters to us is that your product arrives quickly and in tip-top condition.

We realise it's pretty hard to make a buying decision based on a 2-Dimensional image so we make our own videos on products we think you'll like. We hope that it may help you make a more informed choice.

We have 'one-off' deals in our newsletter and on facebook, for you to take advantage of.
