We have implemented measures and working practices to maintain social distancing and personal safety, while providing as normal service as possible. You can read more about the measures we have taken below. If you have questions, please contact us.
In garden centre measures
Oxford Garden Centre is open to the public with restricted access to facilitate social distancing for staff and customers wherever possible. Until further notice we will be operating the new trading hours to allow adequate time for cleaning and staff to care for our plants.
Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm
Sunday 10.30am to 4.30pm
At the present time, we are operating with a slightly reduced team. While we are pleased to be operating at near to normal capacity, customers should expect slightly longer delivery lead times and we ask for patience when visiting while we restrict access to provide safe space for you and our staff.
A trolly and basket sanitising station has been setup at the entrance to the garden centre and hand sanitiser is available for customers. Perspex screens will be installed at our service counters while hand sanitiser and personal protective equipment have been provided for staff. Gloves and facemasks will be used where social distancing cannot be effectively maintained. We have intensified our cleaning regime for all areas of our business, including buildings, vehicles, and machinery.
Visitors to Oxford Garden Centre must adhere to the current Government Covid-19 guidance regarding safety and personal protective equipment. We reserve the right to refuse entry, and will ask individuals to leave, if we believe that they are not following social distancing and safety measures or if we feel that their conduct is putting customers and staff in danger.
