How to get to the Dartford shop.
Since the Dartford hydroponics shop in Invicta Rd closed down (it is now a rather lovely little housing estate), we can now be found northwest of Dartford railway station on Burnham Rd. Most customers find this is a much more convenient location as the old Dartford hydroponics shop was hardly in Dartford at all, being a good couple of miles east of the town up a steep hill and then down a long residential road that was often hard to negotiate due to the number of parked cars.
Straight Up Hydroponics Dartford – the only hydroponics shop in Dartford, incidentally – is in an easily-located industrial yard next to the Shell petrol garage on Burnham Rd. We share the yard with Constant Fibreglass, Turner Paints and Safe Homes SE Ltd – you will see signs for these businesses from outside as you pass. Enter the yard where you can see these signs and our shop is the second unit on your left. There is area for customer parking right outside the front door, but if this is occupied park in any parking space you can find in the yard. If you find yourself parked far away from the shop, shop staff will be happy to carry your purchases to your vehicle.
If you are coming to the Dartford hydroponics shop by rail, depart Dartford station and turn right. Walk past the taxi rank next to the roundabout, continue past the entrance to the station car park and continue along station approach until you see a curry take-away to your right. Just past this, turn right and you will find a set of steps. Descend these steps and you will be on Hythe St. Cross the road with care immediately in front of the steps and turn right. Keep walking and turn left at the roundabout onto Victoria Rd. Cross the road keep walking up Victoria Rd…and keep walking. Victoria Rd becomes Burnham Rd after five minutes or so of walking, and soon enough you will cross Lawson Rd. After this is a Shell petrol station, and immediately after the petrol station is the yard where you will find us. The walk from the station to the shop will take approximately fifteen minutes.
If you want to come to the shop by bus, unfortunately there is no bus service along Burnham Rd. Take a bus to Dartford station and follow the directions for travel by foot from there.
How to get to the Canterbury shop.
The Canterbury hydroponics shop – the only hydroponics shop in Canterbury, incidentally – is in an easily-located industrial yard found near Argos and Asda just off Sturry Road. Most customers at the Canterbury hydroponics shop find the location convenient as the shop is off the main road and located in a little cul-de-sac.
The Canterbury hydroponics shop shares the yard with Bioteknik (computer repairs), City Boxing Gym, FWG LTD (Scientists), Rhino Glazing, OS Bodyworks and Canterbury Martial Arts Gym – you will see signs for these businesses from outside as you come towards the gate. Enter the yard where you can see these signs and the Canterbury hydroponics shop is round to the right next to Rhino Glazing. There is an area for customer parking right outside the front door and opposite on the other side of the car park, but if this is occupied there are some visitor bays just inside the gate opposite Bioteknik. If you find yourself parked far away from the shop, the Canterbury hydroponics shop staff will be happy to carry your purchases to your vehicle.
If you are coming to the Canterbury hydroponics shop by rail, Canterbury West station is the closest but it is still a good 20 to 25-minute walk so getting a bus or taxi would be best.
If you want to come to the Canterbury hydroponics shop by bus, you will need to get any bus that travels along Sturry Road, some of these are, from the town: 6, triangle, 8 or 9 but there are others like the 4 if you are coming from Herne Bay or Sturry.
If you are driving then the postcode to the shop is CT1 1DX for your Sat Nav, however, if you do not have a Sat Nav once you are in Canterbury look for signs that point to the A28 Margate or Ramsgate and once you get to Sturry Road you need to take the Left straight after the Asda roundabout and follow the road round to the end.
If you are coming from Thanet or in to Canterbury through Sturry you will need to go around the Asda roundabout to take the left in to our road as there is no right turn from that direction.
