What people say about us

"Our grateful thanks to chief witch Sara and her followers for the splendid event today. Our granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it, as did we. She is 4 years and the event, I think, is perfect for that sort of age group. I hope you consider it worthwhile to repeat in subsequent years for others to enjoy. My thanks, also for finding Arbutus Atlantic!"

"Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon and for providing the names of the plants that attract the butterfly’s. We really enjoyed your magnificent garden. We hope to visit again in the future."
Visitor from Bedford, Aug 2018
"We wish to thank you for the warm hospitality you gave us yesterday, we loved the arboretum and everyone found your nursery amazing, as well as the cafe and shop. Most had not visited Place for Plants before and much enthusiasm was made to return. With lovely weather and everything on offer we couldn’t have asked for more, we had a perfect day out. "

"“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 Jasmine plants we needed. Fantastic service. The selection is good and this family run business is well worth a visit. And great espresso! "
