WEDDING at Holme

Holme for Gardens is the ideal venue for a Purbeck wedding. The Event Field is situated perfectly to make the most of these glorious tranquil gardens, beautiful open countryside, strawberry fields and orchards. Drinks and canapés can be held around the idyllic ponds, followed by a meal of your choice in a wedding marquee to your specification on the Event Field. Your guests are also welcome to camp on the site (for a small extra charge) and breakfast can be served in the Orchard Café to finish off the weekend perfectly!

Gardens at Holme

This year there will NOT be any PYO, as we have taken the decision to landscape and develop the gardens.
These glorious gardens, surrounded by the Isle of Purbeck, continue to be a talking point amongst our visitors. The beautiful plants and colourful borders produce a lovely, uplifting display throughout the summer,
The annual flower fields are looking amazing right now so make sure you visit and soak up the atmosphere and be inspired by the sights, smells, colours and wildlife found here at Holme.

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.’
