They say the best things come in small packages. Our family run garden centre located in the Yorkshire Dales town of Settle is no exception. Founded in spring 2012 by the Lay family, our little ‘pocket’ garden centre sells beautiful plants, pots, gifts and all sorts of other gardening related wares the discerning gardener might need. We also have a café / coffee shop with great coffee... (and other tasty delights too).

Please bear with us...

We haven't managed to get all of our products online yet; we have loads of products, particulally plants, in the garden centre that we haven't been able to upload. If you can't find what you need, please do get in touch to see if we can help you. Say Hello!

Covid-19 - After a few weeks of the Garden Centre being open on a strictly appointment only basis, we have now been able to re-open more or less fully, on a “please wait to be invited in” basis.  We do still allow our more cautious or vulnerable customers to book an appointment between 9am an 10am. We still also accept remote orders and facilitate both collections and local deliveries. See more here: Covid-19

Changing and Challenging Times

Changing and Challenging Times

Sitting here at my desk, in what would normally be the cafe, looking out through the rain streaked window at a sodden plant area being buffeted by unseasonably high winds, I finally get the time to reflect on everything that has changed this year.

Our Covid-19 Plan

Our Covid-19 Plan

We will be open for limited browsing from Monday 18 th of May, by appointment only.

In the meantime we continue serving customers over the phone, email, Facebook, and soon on our website. We will continue to provide local delivery and contactless collection for the foreseeable future.

Why? On Monday the government very quietly announced that garden centres could open. We are concerned about how manageable this will be at the peak of the gardening season whilst maintaining everyone’s safety, but we are also keen to allow those who desperately want to get out, and browse our plants, to do so, and do so safely.

We encourage as many people as possible to use our home delivery and contactless collection services where possible.

For obvious reasons our little Garden Centre has been closed to the public this week, and will be for the foreseeable future; we will shall continue to provide updates on social media channels. However we still have a small team in the garden centre trying to fulfil orders with a free local delivery service.  

Please can we ask that people don’t visit the garden centre for the safety of all our customers and staff. Despite shut gates and signs we have had a number of people try and come in, doing so puts both our staff and yourselves at risk!
