Our Story

Plants ....'click' on a leaf for more info'

Most of our plants are grown in Devon and the Southwest by specialist growers, using peat-free compost where possible. We draw from numerous small specialist nurseries across Devon.

Cards & Gifts

 As well as a full range of cards we have a huge selection of beautiful and unusual gifts ranging from the practical to the frivolous. From small gifts to the rather more extravagant.

Seeds & Bulbs

The Garden Shop has been stocking Franchi seeds for more than 8 years and the feedback is 100% positive – from the traditional allotment gardeners to celebrity chefs!

Pots & Containers

 We carry a large range of beautiful Cretan and Terracotta pots, containers and stone ornaments. We always carry a good range of standard glazed and terracotta pots as well as an interesting variety of indoor plant containers.


We carry all the standard composts you could want and more. Small or large quantities are available in a variety of prices. Organic, mushroom, peat free, horse manure and even Zoo Poo!


 We usually have an interesting selection of chairs, seats and tables. If you can’t see what you’re looking for on our website, contact us to discuss your requirements and we’ll source it for you!


 We do know a bit about garden tools and consider our selection as being fit for purpose and good value. Our main ranges of tools are from Darlac, Spear & Jackson and Burgon & Ball.

Boring but necessary

 The sometimes bewildering choice of pest and weed control and plant fertilisers and treatments that customers are faced with at garden centres can be reduced down to a relatively few actual chemicals and treatments, the rest of the shelf space is taken up by the different brands.
