COACHES WELCOME for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea!
Please call for more information and to book in so we can meet the coach on arrival.
As we are an historic site as well as a Garden Centre you can provide your travellers with a different kind of stop which combines refreshments, shopping and the history of Plymouth.
Free refreshments for drivers.


We are situated at the top of Forder Valley Hill on Fort Austin Avenue, along the road from Crownhill Shops. We are not far from the A38 or Marsh Mills Roundabout. If you would like to travel by Bus you can take the 28 or 28A bus to and from the city centre. Ask to be dropped off at Bowden Cross - the stops are just along the road (40m) and opposite.

DOGS are welcome in the garden centre, but we ask you not to bring them into the Coffee Shop.

Plant of the month

Scabious (Pincushion Flower)

A gentle, quaint flowerhead stands tall above understated leaves. It makes a perfect cut flower, but would you want to pick it?! A fantastic pollinator attracting bees and butterflies to your garden from Spring and all summer long!

They need to be regularly deadheaded, watered in dry spells, and are a reliable performer in the bed or border. Perfect for coastal gardens to cottage gardens, they will tolerate most soils and look beautiful in pots too.

A versatile plant and pollinator friendly too... it ticks all our boxes!
