Mothers Day Treats - Galgorm

Creative Gardens Galgorm Castle is one of three Creative Gardens Centres across Northern Ireland.The business modestly began when our owner, Diana Gass, started growing tomatoes and vegetables in her back garden. With the gradual introduction of plants and other products, our humble beginnings grew in to something much larger and since our conception in the early 1980s we have built a reputation for quality, experience and style.

The Gass family, who are still running the three centres today, have always ensured that the business remained focused on providing customers with excellent service in a highly creative and relaxing environment.

We are proud members of the Garden Centre Association (GCA), meaning that our customers are assured of an excellent level of service, plants and gardening products, together with innovative life-style displays, as well as professional advice and information. As a member, we are audited and marked yearly to ensure these high standards are maintained.

Creative Gardens has evolved into an Award Winning business, whose focus has always been on great quality plants, fantastic coffee and homemade foods. In addition to this, we also have a wonderful selection of gifts – so whatever your shopping needs may be, we are sure you will find the solution at Creative Gardens. (Source)

We love browsing through their blooms and especially at the moment as spring has just sprung. In the Centre you can get a cuppa and a traybake (they are massive) and have a look around their range of homewares and gifts.

So there you have it – three brilliant treats which you coudl enjoy with your mum this Mother’s Day. They are all in the same place – Galgorm, just outside Ballymena. Let us know what other businesses in Galgorm you would recommend we visit this Spring.
