For the garden. . .

We stock everything you need for successful gardening - from plants and tools to fertilisers and organic composts.

Our friendly staff can provide advice and information, whether it's about how to make your garden look spectacular throughout the year, support wildlife or the best ways to care for new plants. Don't forget, our plants have a five year guarantee (ask a member of staff for more details).


For your home. . .

The gift shop is the perfect place to find something special, from contemporary giftware, cards and stationery items, to design-led kitchen and home wares and fun children's gifts. Speciality foods, including many from local producers, are also available to buy.

With the largest gardening and horticultural bookshop in the north, our 'bookshop with a view' is a great place to relax and browse the extensive range of subject titles. Beyond gardening you will also find cookery, travel and crafts, as well as a captivating selection of children's books.

And with easy, free car parking, doing your shopping really couldn’t be simpler.

We accept & sell GCA gift vouchers along with RHS vouchers. We also sell National Book Tokens and HTA vouchers.

Profits from the RHS Garden Harlow Carr Plant Centre and Shop make an important contribution to the charitable activities of the RHS.

Our position on plastic - and how you can help 

We care about the environment and are committed to helping the UK's 27 million gardeners reduce their impact on it, and that's why we have an organisation-wide statement on plastic

To help reduce the impact of plastic across our work therefore, we use paper bags in our gift shops - and ask our customers to bring their own bags (when they can) for purchases made at our Shows and Gardens.
