Welcome to The Place for Plants

The Place for Plants is a family run specialist plant centre and garden. Based at East Bergholt which is set in the beautiful Stour valley on the Suffolk-Essex border. The plant centre is open throughout the year and the garden and arboretum are open from March to September.

The garden and arboretum, often referred to as a Cornish garden in Suffolk, cover 20 acres with many unusual trees and shrubs, spring bulbs, topiary and a series of ponds. The Plant centre, in the spectacular Victorian walled garden, offers a huge range of plants for sale, while the constantly changing plant displays are worth a visit in themselves.
