Established in 1866 we are today one of the South West’s leading garden centres and nurseries run by the sixth generation of our family, Charlie and Becky, who together oversee the running of both the main garden centre in Bridport and the smaller sister nursery Little Groves based in Beaminster.
Although we also stock a very wide range of leisure and general gardening products, plus have a very well stocked pet shop, we are at heart a traditional nursery dedicated to producing top quality plants. We grow the vast majority of our own stock including 32,000 bedding plants, 12,000 trees, 8,000 roses and 6,000 perennials annually.
The nursery also sells a large range of our own grown vegetable plants, plus a wide choice of fruit trees, soft fruit bushes, grapevines and garden herbs, a particular speciality.
We are very proud to hold the National Collection of Viola Odorata and Parma Violets, a collection that was started by Charles William Groves, grandfather of Charlie and Becky, and continued by their father Clive who also developed a passion for these highly scented beautiful little flowers.
Whatever time of year we’re confident that you will find something fragrant, edible or beautiful to add to your garden from our nursery.
