Since our launch in April 2000, we've grown into the biggest gardening website in the UK and the only one able to supply a significant range of plants. Our approach has won us many compliments.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer you the biggest choice of plants in the UK. For example, a good garden centre can give you around 400 plant varieties to choose from. We can offer over 4,000. If you're worried about all this choice, don't be. We can help narrow it down for you. We've created the Inspiration section to give you monthly care tips, ready-made borders & perfect plant combinations, as well as ideas on what style suits your garden.

We've also grown plants for the show gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show every year since we started. In the last 15 years we have won 25 gold medals for gardens that we have built and grown the plants for. As a result, we now provide plants for most of the leading garden designers in the country. People like Luciano Giubbilei, Tom Stuart Smith, Jinny Blom and Kim Wilkie to name but a few!

Gardening Express was established in the late 1990's by Chris Bonnett, whilst still a teenager, after he decided it would be a fantastic idea to combine his passion of the great outdoors and plants with the Internet. Following past experience of plants purchased from other mail order companies, it was quickly decided that there was room for much improvement in the market; they never seemed to grow and we knew we could do much better, and so, Gardening Express was born.

Whilst studying for a degree at Writtle College, world-renowned in the world of horticulture, Chris painstakingly built up the business, all funded from savings from part time jobs, until a full blown success had been created from the foundation years of hard work.

In 2005, shortly after Chris graduated, the website was re-launched, a large premises acquired, and a nursery built ongoing with expanding numbers of staff recruited to keep pace with demand. Gradually through the continued dedication to quality, service and value for money, the business has become a force to be reckoned with in mail order Gardening, and is now one of the largest independent online Garden Centres in the UK.

Word has spread rapidly amongst our many customers and their friends and we now ship thousands of plants every week, not just within the UK, but also throughout Europe. The Company has formed many partnerships with high profile brands and organisations, always aiming to stay one step ahead of the many 'me too' competitors that have jumped on the online gardening bandwagon. It's a compliment for us to know that so many now use us as a benchmark when attempting to reach high standards.
