It is official—the brand-new Form Plants Showroom is open!
Open to all – trade and public alike. In this blog we will go into detail about what to expect from your visit here and explain a little about what we do.
What to expect from your visit
When designing the showroom, the goal was to create an experience unlike any other for our visitors. Unlike other plant nurseries, there are no boring straight lines of uninspiring planting; instead, you will find a completely immersive experience. What we have created is a truly unique space. It is the perfect place to visit to find inspiration, and to sit out in the sun finalising your project plans with a cold refreshment in hand. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are nearby, ready to help.
Once you have parked, you will walk through our tree tunnel and find yourself in our wonderland of specimen trees, topiary, and shrubs. From here, guests are welcome to wander freely and get a real sense of how the plants would look and feel in the space they are designing. There are plenty of table and chair sets to be found dotted about the place, where you can pause and absorb the surroundings whilst helping yourself to a drink from one of the many underground drinks coolers.
The showroom will be ever changing and adapting with the seasons. Planting will reflect current stock and the growing seasons. We also have many exciting plans for the future, like an all-day BBQ to make the experience a perfect day out for our guests.
More about the location
Located in the picturesque village of Dorney, Buckinghamshire, it truly is the perfect setting. When visiting us, why not plan to spend the day in the local area, visiting Dorney Court or Windsor Castle? Crocus Garden Centre is also just a stones throw away from us. With a café on site and a great selection of plants too, you can easily find yourself enjoying the whole day relaxing and planning the perfect outdoor space.
As well as our enticing setting packed with trees, we have an office on site and a spectacular 150m tunnel filled with perennials. We are truly proud of this site and are happy to show guests around the whole area.
Stock and services
With everything from 12m trees to small perennials, we cater for all. Whether you are putting the finishing touches to your latest project or planning the next, we can help. With over 40,000 perennials and a vast collection of trees, we are sure to have you covered.
Our non-exhaustive list of stock includes:
• Specimen trees
• Multistem trees
• Topiary, including balls, beehives, cones, domes and pyramids
• Grasses and ferns
• Roses and climbers
• Pleached trees, standard and feathered trees
• Additional sundries like compost and bark, fertiliser, and tree anchors
For orders that are confirmed before midday, we can process and deliver the next day, subject to delivery constraints. We also encourage collections from site. Finally, we offer a planting service for those who may want to take advantage of our experienced helping hand.
So, plan your big day out and come and see us on site at the Form Plants Showroom; we will have the beers ready!
