Creative Gardens has been a family run business for almost 40 years. Starting from a small plant nursery at the Gass family home, they now have 4 award winning garden centres across Northern Ireland. It's been a long journey to get here but their passion for plants has only grown stronger over the years - after all, it is where it all began.
