The property was purchased in the early 1980’s by Russell and his family and was at that time known as the Strawberry Farm which was entirely a pick-your-own fruit farm, hence the name Strawberry Garden Centre as it is known today. The pick-your-own fruit business was phased out in the mid-1990’s as the Garden Centre grew.
The Coffee Shop was added in the late 1980’s and has become a firm favourite. We have built up our strong reputation for our traditional home cooking.Russell and Sarah have grown the business to how it exists today. Both are very “hands on” and are committed to providing the very best in good old fashioned customer service.
Friendly qualified staff are always available to give advice when needed and help with loading and lifting of composts, stoneware, etc. Local delivery can also be arranged for large or bulky purchases.A large proportion of plants are now grown on site within our own nursery area and we are therefore able to offer many more unusual varieties of plant not readily available at other Centres.
Selected local growers are also used and we are proud of the quality and choice that we offer.Our seasonal planters and baskets are all planted on site to ensure optimum freshness and quality and we have built up a strong reputation for this service.
