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!

Cut Tree or Pot Grown?

Cut Tree or Pot Grown?

Cut tree or pot grown? Which should you choose?
The traditional Christmas tree choice has always been a cut tree, sliced off at the base and jammed in a stand for Christmas, only to face the tip come January, is their an alternative if you want a real tree? Yes, but it's not for everyone.
Here at Lay of the Land we have a large selection of 'pot grown' Christmas trees. Although more expensive than their cut brethren, they should survive happily through Christmas and for many years to come, provided they are looked after and re-potted as required.

Jimmie what’s taking you so long?!? (café update)

Some people have been wondering why our café didn’t open at the beginning of July when the folk in no 10 gave the all-clear, or in the weeks following like many other café’s. Hopefully, you’ll be pleased to know, we will be opening the café, for takeaway only, from this Friday, 7th of August.

We thought it would be good to offer some insight into our thoughts, and explain why we’re not opening more fully.
