Ger Excited and Grow Things at Lay of the Land - Garden Centre, Settle, North Yorkshire


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).

Sage Advice for Bees
