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.
Although our local soil conditions are not ideal for growing the majority of these plants, they do make ideal container plants as the compost can be tailored to their requirements.
Along with a good range of traditional Rhododendrons, we also stock ‘Inkharo’ Rhododendrons which have been specially developed to be lime-tolerant and will therefore grow in most garden soils. These showy shrubs are available in many popular colours and are a worthwhile addition to any garden.
The majority of this stock is available in the early Spring, just prior to flowering.
We also stock Heathers, both acid loving and lime-tolerant for both Autumn and Spring displays.
