Plant Centre

The plant centre is open 10am-5pm daily, including Sundays.

We have an excellent range of plants from trees, including fruit to shrubs, to compost, seeds and gifts.  We also sell our own vouchers which make an ideal present.


The Plant Centre is situated in the Victorian Walled garden at East Bergholt Place adjacent to the garden and arboretum and has been created by Rupert and Sara from scratch.  Since opening in the Spring of 1996, the Plant Centre has grown considerably and now lists over 6000 different plants including trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants including ferns, grasses and bamboos, climbers, roses, heathers, conifers, herbs and fruit.

We are able to offer a local mail order service from September to March as well as a customer order service and will be happy to gather together and reserve any plants for collection (within a month). We will also try to obtain anything listed but not in stock and for large orders we offer a quote/collection and delivery service  – see services offered.

Our staff are all knowledgeable and enthusiastic gardeners, who can give help and advice on individual plants or suggestions for specific sites.

The Plant Centre shop stocks a very good range of practical gardening tools, chemicals, seeds and gardening gifts as well as pots, terracotta, terrazzo and Haddonstone.
