Walkers Nurseries is a family run business established in 1951, with over 60 years experience in providing quality service, plants, goods, advice and experience to the disconcerting gardener. More than just a garden centre, Walkers Nurseries hosts a wonderful new gift shop, a Food to Go counter, the Garden Restaurant and over 8 acres of beautiful show gardens to stroll around.
The garden centre stocks shrubs, flowers, bedding plants, alpines, conifers, roses and grasses. In essence plants of all colours, shapes and sizes. We also stock a wide variety of garden equipment, pots, compost, seeds, chemicals, wildlife products, garden furniture, everything that a gardener could want or need.
We are very proud of our new 500m² retail gift outlet which opened in March 2013. We stock cards, gift wrap, books, kitchen equipment, textiles, garden sundries, giftware and artificial flowers. We are stockists of popular brands such as Yankee Candle, Sophie Allport, Burgon and Ball, Orla Keily, Dcuk and Gruffalo children’s ware. We pride ourselves on offering our customers a wide range of products perfect for any occasion.
At the same time of opening our retail outlet, our exciting Food to go food counter opened. We sell freshly prepared on site food, from locally sourced ingredients, which include cakes, pies, sausage rolls and scones. We also have a deli counter, where we sell locally sourced produce, preserves, cheese, chutneys, sweet and eggs, to name a few.
