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).

Our Fledgling Orchard

Jimmie and I had a really good couple of days the other week, during a brief respite in the weather, planting some trees in our fledgling orchard.

'The best time to plant a tree'

'The best time to plant a tree'

Someone famous once said “the best time to plant a tree is 100 years ago.  The second best time is now.”

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.
