Once part of the Galton Farm estate, the centre started life as a family run cut flower nursery, specialising in chrysanthemums and alstromeria. Sensitivity to chrysanthemum sap and a decline in the cut flower market led to diversification... and the rest, as they say, is history! The centre lies in the heart of Hardy country and is only 3 miles from Dorset's stunning Jurassic coast - a setting and a centre not to be missed.
We sell top quality growing stock, gardening products and garden furniture as well as birdcare products, floristry, houseplants and books. We also have a fabulous giftware and greeting card department and at Christmas, an inspiring display of decorations, lights and trees. Our restaurant has an excellent reputation, selling delicious home-made snacks and lunches whilst our staff are friendly and helpful horticultural experts who pride themselves on giving good practical advice to expert and amateur gardeners alike.
We all look forward to welcoming you to the centre soon.
