"Superb quality, as you'd expect from the Royal Horticultural Society's own garden centre, with the emphasis firmly on plants rather than seasonal tat," says Anna. "Magnificent magnolias and fabulous ferns – choose from 9,000 different delights and next door is the best gardening bookstore in the world."
