About our Centres

Located in Northern Ireland, Donaghadee Garden Centre, Bushmills Garden Centre and Galgorm Castle have established a reputation for quality, experience and style.

Established by the Gass family in the early 1980s, the business has always remained focused on providing customers with excellent service in a highly creative and relaxing environment.

Re-branded in 2005, Creative Gardens has evolved into an award-winning family run business whose focus has always been on great quality plants, fantastic coffee and homemade foods, and a wonderful selection of furniture, homeware and gifts.

Creative Gardens has been winning awards for many years - the latest includes 'The Best Garden Centre in Northern Ireland 2019' issued by the National Garden Centre Association. As members of the GCA, our customers are assured of an excellent level of service, plants, gardening products together with innovative lifestyle displays, professional advice and information.

Fantastic Food

We love food at Creative Gardens! Our café teams start early every day baking lots of fresh produce in our kitchens, made using only high quality ingredients. We don’t buy anything in – we like to make all our scones, desserts, traybakes and cakes ourselves, so they are always fresh and delicious! We also serve hot food in our café, from breakfast to lunch and evening meals in the summer.  Learn more about food at Creative Gardens here.
