What people say…

You will never want to go to another garden centre again.... this one is so different, friendly and inspirational. Couldn't ask for more. What a lovely way to waste an afternoon! Our favourite place to go. Just love walking around the beautiful vast gardens, and enjoying a Dorset cream Tea overlooking the landscaped ponds. Highly Recommended. On visiting Holme Nurseries for the first time I was impressed with the variety and quality of the plants, but not only that the Orchard tea room (and the cake!) plus the local produce for sale in their shop made it a very relaxed and enjoyable visit - will definitely go again, maybe with some friends next time!

Holme Garden Centre has so much to look at, I was overwhelmed with the choice

‘ have been a great help Simon, our garden is beyond our wildest dreams, with just the most amazing vista of colour and tasteful design, thank you.’
