Our innovative plastic free Shop
Open 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday
10am to 4pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays
PLEASE NOTE – We are seasonal growers, we grow and sell mainly our own plants. We do not import out of season plants.
From Mid October until early March we do not re-stock compost. We have to balance sales levels and the condition of composts during cold (freezing) winter months. We remain open for tree sales/advice. This year we have sold 5 times our normal volume of compost with our new ‘bag for life’ scheme, please phone for availability.
We are on the grounds of the Abbey School on the A2.. the turning is just after a speed trap right by a pedestrian bridge.
We have free parking by the sports hall and note that our entrance now is via our rear gates
ME13 8RZ is the best sat Nav post code.
We do have a toilet for customer use but unfortunately no disabled. Elements of our shop are wheel chair accessible but the nursery element is rough underfoot.
You can bring dogs on to our site but they must be well behaved… the same for children.
Come and visit our Fork Handles shop in Faversham!
We sell hardy, well grown, seasonal, interesting plants. Grown peat/pesticide free and sold plastic free.
What we offer above a garden centre or DIY store is invaluable.. free knowledge.
