When I was a boy, everything was there. The world sparkled. 
Running around in that world, I could find countless numbers of dreams. 
I stuffed my pockets with dreams and took them home. 
There were dreams that I kept with me always, 
some I tucked away in my desk and forgot about, 
and some fell out of my pocket before I knew.
Dreams existed around me in many forms. 
I wanted to know the true identity of these dreams. 
Where did they come from? 
Why did they show up in front of me in various forms? 
I was totally absorbed by this world of endless dreams.

I finally found the answer to my questions many years later as I turned 60 years-old. 
I found what these dreams really meant, these dreams that had stayed with me all those years. 
Throughout my life, my boyhood dreams had waited for me to discover the answer.

  • Amazing place!

    Wow! Was recommended to visit and have to say that anyone looking for plants and equipment this is definitely the place to go.
    Amazing range. Not the normal few plants chucked into a tank. Absolutely incredible. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

  • Quick service, fantastic plants

    I have ordered from Aquarium Gardens for the first time after seeing them on social media. Well what can I say except WOW, the plants were a really good price, they arrived on time actually quicker than I expected! They arrived in absolutely fantastic condition as if I had picked them out myself, well packaged. The plants themselves were bigger than what I expected to get so definitely value for money and the root systems were well established, can't wait to see them get bigger in my aquariums. Will definitely buy from this company again.
