Welcome to Hulme Community Garden Centre

Christmas Trees

In our festive forest this weekend,

Find the perfect tree to be your friend,

For a teeny space we have 3 foot pups,

And for lofty heights 12 foot grown-ups!

Old fashioned spruce that smell divine,

Nordmann firs that look real fine,

Lodgepole Pines whose trunks make teepees,

Just remember your hat or else you might freeze!

Some in pots and some with blocks,

All from the Highlands, grown by Scots!

Maybe come to a Crafternoon from 12-4,

Make a twiggy reindeer or a wreath to hang on your door.

Then whilst you’re here why not stay for a brew,

And see what cakes there are to feast on too!

About Us


  • Our herbs, fruit & veg are potted up in organic peat free* and stock free compost.
  • All our other plants are grown here in organic and peat free* compost.  Or sourced from nurseries that do not use peat wherever possible.
  • We use local suppliers and support independents and small businesses wherever possible.
  • We never have and never will use synthetic fertilisers, hormones or pesticides.
  • *We only use peat washed naturally into rivers and lakes not dug from precious peat bogs.


Our passion at HCGC is underpinned by organic principles and promoting sustainability, horticulture and the environment, civic engagement and voluntary activity, urban gardening and food production, independent living, health and well-being. We also provide back to work and skills training and placements for longer-term unemployed people. We have been established for 10 years and now welcome over 5,000 visitors per annum, all of whom have access to free expert horticultural advice.

Working together for the common good of the community. 


People are crucial to Hulme Community Garden Centre. Our mission is to bring the local community together through gardening. As a not-for-profit organisation we provide low-cost plants to the local community but we are foremost a volunteer and education hub promoting horticultural and sustainability issues to schools, colleges, the local community and wider public. We are a community resource in two of Manchester's most deprived areas, Hulme and Moss Side, providing a community garden space and running free workshops for the local community, a wide range of socially excluded groups (in particular people with learning disabilities and/or mental health problems), schools and voluntary organisations.
