Visit Our Greenhouse

Greenhouse Sensation Visitor Greenhouse

Our visitor greenhouse is in the pretty village of Mawdesley in Lancashire. Just off J27 of the M6.

We've been visited by the Guardian, Kitchen Garden and BBC North West Tonight,.

Our Greenhouse Address
Towngate Works, 
Dark Lane
L40 2QU

Opening Times
Monday to Friday: 09:00 – 16:00
Saturday: 10:00 – 15:30

Visit our greenhouse for a tour of our bananas, papaya, ginger and naranjilla along with more familiar plants including tomatoes, chillies and sweet peppers. If the fruits of our labour are ripe, we’ll even give you a goody bag of edibles to take away with you.

Some of our chilli plants can be up to 8ft (2.5m) tall and the tomatoes up to 20ft tall.

The plants are all grown in the planters we design and make, and the greenhouse carries a selection of stock of our planters and propagators, so you can buy from the greenhouse and save on postage.

One of our Gardening Angels will give you a tour of the greenhouse, so take the opportunity to ask all those questions that have always niggled you (about gardening that is, we don’t know the meaning of life, or how to revive a goldfish – sorry!)

Visits do not have to be pre-arranged but if you do call ahead we can make sure we put the kettle on. To book a visit contact Greenhouse Sensation on:
