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.
We are dedicating an area on our website to local schools.
We will use this section of our website to feature challenges, competitions and events we run in conjunction with our local schools. We would also be happy to hear from you if you are undertaking any kind of garden project at your school and we will feature these on our School Project pages where we can keep everybody up to date with your progress.
We also regularly run competitions and events for our local schools. One of our most popular competitions is the SCHOOLS CHALLENGE! Every year we supply schools taking part with everything they need for our challenges. All the children have to do is look after the challenges and have some fun! Judging takes place after the closing date and the winning school wins Garden Centre vouchers to spend at the Garden Centre on a gardening project for their school.
Our next challenge will be launched at our ‘Graft and Grow’ day on Saturday 24th February. If you would like to be included in any of our challenges, please do register your interest via our Schools Contact page. We have challenges that all age groups can take part in. Or why not think of some challenges of your own!
If you are a local school and have an event you wish to publicise, please do contact us we can include your event on the Schools Events page.
We enjoy having children visiting the Garden Centre. If you are a local school who would like to visit, please use our Schools Contact page. During your visit we can arrange small talks about any aspect of the Garden Centre from planting seeds and plants to keeping fish or chickens.
