Christmas at Burston

Our Christmas shop here at Burston Garden Centre is one of the best in Hertfordshire, with hundreds of decorations, cards and gift wrap, artificial trees and lights. Our real Christmas trees arrive in the centre on 22nd  November, along with wreaths and planted arrangements.

If you’re looking for ideas for Christmas this year, we have a wide variety of gardening gifts, toiletries, jewellery, scarves and toys.

We’ll also have a wide range of planted arrangements that would be perfect to grace your doorstep, as well as for a gift!

Santas Grotto at Burston Garden Centre

Santa will be visiting the centre again this year, arriving on Saturday 15th November. Santa and his elves will be nestled in the middle of candy-cane lane, ready to meet the local children!

Each child will decorate a Christmas decoration for them to take away and will then meet Santa to tell him about how good they’ve been, before receiving an age appropriate gift!
