Welcome to Heaton Fold Garden Centre

Welcome to Heaton Fold Garden Centre

We are a Bolton Council run facility that is open to the public and also offers work experience for adults with learning disabilities.

Sitting in a picturesque valley just on the outskirts of Bolton town centre, Heaton Fold Garden Centre has everything you need to create your dream garden. From seasonal bedding plants, perennials, composts and decorative aggregates, to ceramic planters, garden furniture, pots and ornaments – there's plenty to browse. We even have a brand new showroom full of sundries, feeds and tools for you to spruce up your garden with!

You can also relax with a drink and a bite to eat in our licensed café, which serves a range of breakfast items, cakes, light lunches and desserts. In the summer we open our Beach Hut, where we fire up the grill and serve amazing summer dishes and drinks outdoors.
