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. The constantly changing plant displays are worth a visit in themselves.

What people say about us

"“The most excellent plant centre” We drove 70 miles to visit this excellent centre. Prior to leaving we phoned with a query and they emailed a photo of the Jasmin plans we needed. Fantastic service. The selection is good and this family run business is well worth a visit. And great espresso! "

"“WELL WORTH A VISIT” Rang them on Sunday to ask if they had a Wisteria. They did and put it aside for us. Drove up from Leigh on sea today to collect it. Staff were superb and couldn't be nicer or more helpful. My wife and I were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and the Wisteria was a small present for our garden. We had a pot of tea on the lawn and took a walk around the gardens @ £6 each and we enjoyed it every bit as much as walking around Hyde Hall. Well worth a visit and well stocked plants and shrubs , pots and all sorts. Great staff plus there are nice places for lunch nearby. Give them a shout!!! Thanks to the guy who helped with tips for the Wisteria. Lovely people. "
