People paid £7 to visit the grotto, of which the scouts kept £2.40, plus donations.
Some 2,100 visited in 2014.
This year’s grotto will cost £8 per person.
A Wyevale Garden Centre representative said: "We take our role as a member of the local community very seriously. We always host Christmas family events within the garden centre and the involvement of the local scout group is something that we and our customers appreciate and enjoy.
"This year is no different, but instead of running the grotto we have asked the scout group to get involved in different activities. We know how important fundraising is to them and we’re keen to make sure we support them as best we can."
