Very knowledgeable staff and excellent quality plants. I have visited several times and bought a variety of plants over the years and have always been very pleased with the service, selection and quality. It's such a delightful spot too.

Returned to this nursery whilst on holiday, previously visited 15 years before - plants still growing well. The nursery is set out like a beautiful cottage garden. The established specimens are named & most are on sale there, very helpful if you want some fresh ideas for an area in your own garden.

We took my grandson here on a beautiful summer's day. All of the plants can be seen in their maturity which allows you to plan your garden more accurately. Ted enjoyed being able to explore every pretty nook and cranny

We visit every time we visit the area. They have such a wonderful and unusual collection of plants, shrubs and trees which you can see growing in their wonderful garden. Well worth a visit to this wonderful village.

This garden centre is in the heart of the picturesque little village Lealholm near Whitby. It's great for a day out with the family, the staff are very helpful and child friendly providing a 'Lady bird hunt' for the little ones! The garden is always neat, tidy and full of inspirational displays. Its a real treasure trove, not just for... More

The plants which are for sale are in good condition and the nursery is very neat and weed free. The lady in charge was careful to point out which of the plants I'd purchased would need winter protection,... More
