A GARDEN centre in St Albans is one of the very best in the country, a Which? Gardening survey has revealed.

Aylett Nurseries on North Orbital Road was rated as one of the top five garden centres in the UK by the Which? Gardening magazine after it received a customer score of 79 per cent in a retailer survey sent out last spring.

Ayletts, an independent family run business established by Roger Aylett in 1955, was praised by customers for the range and quality of its products and its helpful and knowledgeable staff.

Editor of Which? Gardening Ceri Thomas, who visited the garden centre last Wednesday (24), said: "While it's not always easy for independent garden centres to beat big chain stores in terms of price, Aylett Nurseries more than makes up for it in terms of top quality plants and customer service."
