We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. The Garden Centre always has a good selection of shrubs and plants which are not commonly found elsewhere, together with a wide range of the more commonly sought after plants. Established for over 50 years, the Garden Centre has recently been redeveloped to a high standard. Our shop contains the largest selection of seeds and bulbs for miles around, together with garden chemicals, tools, garden furniture and many other goods. Outside we stock peat-based and peat-free composts, paving, fencing, timber decking, garden buildings and greenhouses, and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments. Our aquatics centre has a good reputation for their excellent quality tropical, marine and cold water fish. The Gardeners' Retreat, our coffee shop/restaurant, serves fresh home cooked food and is an excellent way to round off any visit to the Garden Centre.
Are you interested in the work of a bee keeper? Curious as to why they use smoke? Want to find out how the honey is formed?
We tend our bees every Monday afternoon weather permitting. If you come along around 4pm and head for our bee hives (situated behind our Plant Information/Mail Order building), you will be able to watch our bee keepers at work and they will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Please do not approach the hives yourself, our bee keepers will be obvious in their bee keeping outfits and they will direct you to the best place to stand and watch and get the best view without the risk of getting stung.
