This year we’re giving you the opportunity to choose your Christmas tree from the warmth and comfort of your own home. You can inspect the exact tree that you order, from every angle, and better still, it will be delivered direct to your door, straight from the grower.
Browse our online shopping gallery of Nordman Firs, choose from four sizes and then view each one individually, before selecting the perfect Christmas tree for 2017.
Louise Burks and her team at The Gardens Group start to think about Christmas just as most people are packing away the tinsel. A year in advance, so in January each year, Louise plans and designs the next year’s displays and then she starts the magical part – the massive Christmas list of baubles, sparkling crystals, candles and trees and all the tiny little extras that children especially love. After more than 25 years of ‘creating’ Christmas, Louise still manages to pull the unexpected out of the sparkly top hat.
The Gardens Group - Three Garden Centres all multi award-winning and each with a restaurant serving up delicious homemade food using local ingredients. Castle Gardens is in the historical walled garden of Sherborne Castle; Brimsmore Gardens and its award-winning farm shop is in a setting that was once a fruit farm on the edge of Yeovil and Poundbury Gardens grew in a wonderfully atmospheric converted Victorian farm building in Dorchester.
From free family activities and charity evenings to Wildlife Friendly Gardening Awards and free seasonal talks, we've got a wide range of events for gardeners of all ages throughout the year.
Whether you need your plants delivered FREE to your door, help and advice on container gardening, hanging baskets or tree planting, or you would like your plants gift wrapped…we are here to help.

Each of our restaurants serves superb food made fresh each day from local, seasonal produce. Our chefs are proud to be supporting local growers, farmers and producers and serving a delicious taste of the West Country every day of the week.
