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.
Coming soon: Autumn and Tree Weekend
Our annual ‘Autumn and Tree Weekend’ is a hugely popular event and will this year run on the 7th and 8th October. We have talks on different topics and free garden tours in addition to a huge variety of new trees in stock.
If you are interested in reserving a space on the garden tour, please call or email. Equally, to reserve a tree to avoid disappointment, we highly recommend pre-ordering (no payment required until collection). Please call or email and we’d be delighted to assist.
