Even if you think you don't need any more plants for your garden. You will after visiting this place. If like me you are not able to transport a plant home. This place will be able to supply you with the seeds.

This place has a separate cafe you can enter without paying the entrance fee. Maybe should have a separate listing to the gardens. It has views over the river Teign. There's a small outside area to sit if you want. Prices are around average. Food...More

Many thanks! Yes, the views from the cafe are fantastic, and we try to do good wholesome local food. The gardens stretch to 2 acres though, so it is well-worth a visit if you have time.

Originally a visit to the garden centre which we found from a voucher in the Herald Express. So as a family of eight, we had an interesting time looking around all the plants. We especially liked the around the world theme of the gardens. After...More

Hi Anthony, It took us 32 years to get it looking like this, and now I have retired, but have excellent staff to carry on the good work. Thank you very much for your kind comments. Ray
