Christmas Spectacular at Ayletts


Of all the garden centre Christmas displays in St Albans, my favourite has to be that of Aylett Nurseries. Each year, they strive to be better than the previous year and that’s exactly what they achieve!
It’s definately worth the trip over (borrow a child to bring along!) to see this year’s themed ‘Christmas Spectacular.’ The animated (moving) display in Mistletoe wood, the Christmas trees (real or artificial), hundreds of baubles and mini-gifts all make for a great shopping trip. My recommendation would be their home-grown Ponsettia plants which are top quality. And don’t forget to look at their solar Christmas lights! Have a cappucino at the Dahlia Coffee house while you’re there!
Opening hours; Mon-Fri 8.30am – 5.30pm, Sat 8.30-5pm, Sun 10.30am -4.30pm
Late night opening Thurs 6th, 13th and 20th December 2012, until 8pm.
