Garden CentreAt Spadework we grow the majority of plants that are available for sale in our Garden Centre which includes seasonal bedding, shrubs, climbers, wide range of perennials, fruit trees and bushes.

Even if we do say ourselves our hanging baskets and containers are first class! Our trainees take great pride in offering a bespoke planting service, no job too big or small. Just bring in your existing containers/baskets for a seasonal makeover or choose from the items we stock in store.

In addition to our home grown plants we use other local and UK based specialist nurseries to ensure we have something for all seasons.

We stock all the usual suspects from compost to seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, ornamental pots and seasonal items such as charcoal, bird care, coal and logs. Our logs come in nets or half and full trailer loads which staff and trainees will stack into your log store or shed. Please enquire in store for full details.

If you need a helping hand our knowledgeable and friendly staff and trainees will be only to pleased to assist you; anything from finding the right plant for a problem area or loading compost into your car.

We may not be the biggest but we aim to have all you will need to make your garden grow!
