We have been growing plants and vegetables for ourselves for the last 15 years as a hobby.

We are a family run business since turning our hobby into our job.

Nick does most of the growing now and I do most of the shop work and our 2 teenage Children help out when needed.

We started selling from a stall outside our home last year and moved to the Durham Dales Centre in September of this year.

We stock many shrubs, houseplants, bedding plants, grasses and evergreens.

We also stock gardening tools, indoor and outdoor plant pots and gifts.

Here at the Durham Dales Centre we welcome thousands of visitors each year. Take a look below at some of our lovely feedback.

Nice little gift shops and a great cafe have a nice all day breakfast and some great Sunday dinners all at a good price!


The staff are always pleasant and helpful (even when run off their feet). The menu has a good selection and the food is homemade, would recommend the mince pie with all the trimmings.


Plenty of parking, nice shops and café very good food. We used the centre as a base for a walk around the quarry then back for food.
