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!

On a day of sunshine and snow, a magical visit. The quality and care taken with the plants was outstanding and very much on a par with costs with more commercial centres. Service was brilliant. The nursery was like a large well kept back garden with all planted shrubs labelled. Easy parking a few yards away.

An absolute joy. A beautiful garden - worth a visit on its own. You can see many of the plants that are on sale. As there are planting dates, it's possible to get an idea what shrubs or trees will be like after a few years. Interesting stock. Always informative and helpful advice.

I like the casual atmosphere here. You can wander about freely without feeling pressurised to buy. It's outside & is full of plants, some of them very unusual.
