A message from our Gardening Club
Know your onions
At Avant Garden Centre we offer friendly, expert advice and guidance on most garden-related problems, with specialist help available from our staff headed by Plantarea Manager, Radio Lancashire’s Diane Harrison.
Every season, Diane puts together an inspirational collection of plants and ideas for planting schemes that are easily transferable to any garden.
Also at Avant, you can enjoy a home-cooked meal with great coffee, surrounded by a diverse collection of work from local artists and crafters that changes monthly.Our gift area carries a delightful range of trends, from the latest in vintage and hygge home decor, to collectables such as Pets with Personality and More than Words, and then haberdashery items difficult to source locally.
A variety of gardening, arts and crafts courses and workshops are based at Avant, including those of our Gardening Club which meets once a month to discuss the practical aspects of improving the garden. And we arrange seasonal events we think will be of interest to our customers.
If you choose to visit us, we offer a large, free car park with the option to stash your bike as well as disabled parking.
