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.
Our spring free talks were a huge success so we’ve planned more for you this August and September. Talks will take place at Brimsmore Gardens on Tuesday, Poundbury Gardens on Wednesday and Castle Gardens on Thursday. Each talk will start at 2.30pm and all are free to attend. Find full details here.
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.
As well as our garden centres we’ve also got three award-winning restaurants and an award-winning Farm Shop.
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.
