Surrounded by stunning English countryside, Market Harborough is a beautiful region of the country. Being close to so much nature, it’s no wonder that many residents in our local area and many of our clients and Care Professionals at Home Instead are green-fingered enthusiasts looking to enjoy their gardens.
As well as catering to serious gardening enthusiasts, garden centres are also a lovely idea for a day out for adults who need easy accessibility. For older adults, a visit to the local garden centre can be an opportunity to buy an indoor plant or a small outdoor project – like a hanging basket – to brighten up a home or a garden.
There is a great selection of garden centres in the Market Harborough area, offering customers almost every type of plant alongside essential gardening tools and even a few cafes to enjoy a cup of tea and cake.
