Groves Nurseries Exterior

For years now we have been planning a brand new restaurant for our garden centre and we are very excited to announce that this initial phase of works will begin on Monday the 20th of February.  Unfortunately, this is all of the boring stuff, the gas, electric sewerage and water.  This is currently all located underground in our top car parks and our lovely new restaurant is going at the back of the garden centre next to our pond. This means this phase of the construction will be very disruptive to our parking, cutting off our two lower over flow car parks and digging up some of our top car parks.

We are working extremely closely with very reputable, local builders CG Fry who will be doing everything they can to minimise disruption however we will have very limited parking during these works which we are expecting to last 3 weeks. 

However fear not, we will stay open! We are stuffing ourselves full of stock to ensure we will still have what you want whilst deliveries in are limited.  

Here are a few top tips to make sure you can still shop happily with us...

1.0 Visit Little Groves

Little Groves won’t be affected so if you haven’t visited the girls up in Beaminster why not take this opportunity to pay them a visit?  Give them a days notice and we can get pretty much anything up to Little Groves for you to collect there. Their phone number is 01308 862030. Click here for more info about Little Groves

2.0 Use Our Delivery Service

We have reduced our free delivery threshold….We normally need you to spend £25.00 to get free delivery to DT6 and DT8 postcodes but whilst these works or going on we have reduced this to just £10.  Click here for more info about our delivery service

3.0 Ring or Click and Collect

Give us a call or use the click and collect service on our website…If you know what you are after give us a call on 01308 422654 and we can get your order ready for you to collect so you can be in and out in no time.  

4.0 Visit between 8am and 10am

We are always up bright and early and open at 8am (except Sundays).  8am until 10am is our quietest time.  Why not save yourself some stress and come along then?

5.0 Park at the Crown

Simon at the Crown Inn has very kindly allowed us to use his car park as an overflow.  You can access it via Burton Road and just cross the road to our garden centre.  You could even call in for a lovely cuppa or a pint on the way back...Well, it would be rude not to!

6.0 Walk or Ride!

Spring is just around the corner and the weather is starting to look a bit better! Why not pay us a visit by foot or pedal power? You can choose whatever you like and make use of our delivery service to get it home!


I would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this tricky but very exciting time.  We are sure that the resulting restaurant will be a great addition to our garden centre and will be worth the disruption for the next few weeks.  In the mean time if you would like to discuss these works or any of our plans with me I will be more than happy to go through them with you.

Thanks again
