A trip to the garden centre is de rigueur for green-fingered folk in search of this year’s wow factor. Harry Maddock selects some garden centre cafés, from Heathfield to Angmering

Rushfields Plant Centre

This family-run plant centre in Poynings has its very own licensed café serving tea, coffee, cake and homemade scones. If you’re after something a bit more filling there are a number of breakfast options available, as well as a variety of lunches from 11.30am to 3pm, including soups, sandwiches and salads.

Henfield Rd, Poynings, Brighton BN45 7AY

Stooks

Stooks and its team of chefs have created a seasonal menu full of organic produce, sourced locally. With delicacies from pork schnitzel to turkey and sweetcorn meatballs, there will be something on the menu to appease your appetite. They cater for those who require gluten-free dishes and can meet any other dietary needs upon request.

Newbridge Nurseries, Billingshurst Road, Broadbridge Heath RH12 3LN

Haskins

With its 600-seat restaurant – 140 of those outdoors for warmer days – the restaurant at Haskins has stone-baked pizzas, fish and chips and carvery options on the menu. Afternoon tea for two is available for £16.95 and they also offer a special deal on two main meals for £10 on Thursdays and Fridays.

Roundstone By-Pass Rd, Angmering, BN16 4BD

Petals for Plants

Tastebuds, the coffee shop at this Heathfield-based garden centre, is housed inside a beautiful oak barn with views of the Sussex countryside. The light lunch menu is seasonal.
