Our innovative plastic free Shop
Open 9am to 5pm Wednesday 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. We are running our business 7 days a week, most Mondays and Tuesdays we are out pruning or planting fruit trees
We do not sell our plants wholesale (to other businesses). We do not send plants via the courier system.. if you want to order goods from us to be delivered you must be within a 40 mile radius of our business, we only now use electric vans.
This year we will have our ‘bag for life’ peat free compost available all year. We sell Melcourts most popular compost Sylvagrow in early season for £6.50 a bag.. with your first purchase you have to get (we cannot refill old compost bags) one of our ‘bags for life’ which cost £1.50, this has a approximate life span of 40 refills.
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.
