The Plant Centre is attractively located within the gardens and offers a good selection of hardy plants, all sourced from UK growers.
The timber Woodside Garden Centre stocks a range of practical gardening items such as seeds, seasonal bulbs, garden tools, gloves, and string as well as a superb range of wild bird food and feeders. New for 2021 is our aquatics section offering everything you need for ponds and water gardening.
Also located in this area is the grocery shop.
The Plant Centre and Garden Shop is currently manned by myself (Emma), husband Stephen, with help from experienced gardener Laura, so we are able to help with your purchases and offer sensible advice.
We always have in stock a wide range of plants, depending on the season. This will include:
- Annual bedding plants, both winter and summer
- trees and shrubs
- fruit trees
- vegetable plants
- herbaceous perennials
We also have a good range of seasonal bulbs and vegetable seeds for sale.

How to Get in Touch

Because of our lovely woodland setting internet signals are intermittent, so emails and social media requests may go un-answered. Please phone us during opening hours on 01835 830315 for all enquiries.
