Eat and drink alongside the plants!

If al fresco dining is your thing there  are a number of picnic tables set in our lovely garden. Kick back and have a bite to eat while the kids play in the playground nearby. It is the perfect place to relax when the sun is shining and the plants are in bloom - it’s quite an idyllic little spot.

Make a meal out of your shopping trip and turn it into a full day out. We don’t want you to just race in grab what you need and rush off as quickly as you can. We want you to take your time, hang around and enjoy the plants, colours, textures and scents. Breathe. 

It’s all part of our aspiration to be much more than a plant nursery. Yes you can meet your friends here for a bite to eat, but we also want to be a place where people can come together around their passions for horticulture.

Don’t worry if you have forgotten your picnic basket as we have a fully stocked café where you can pick up supplies and make the most of your visit. Check out our café page for more details and a full menu.
