The Chard Garden Centre is in a beautiful part of Somerset (weather permitting!) and
well worth a visit if you appreciate a traditional nursery which grows the majority
of its own plants. The staff are pleasant and helpful so go ahead and ask a question
if you need expert advice.

The outside plants area is traditionally laid out making it interesting
to wander round. Reasonably good signs indicate where the main plants groups are
situated and then they are arranged in alphabetic order.
There is a good range of plants for sale and they all looked in excellent condition.
Especially good was the range of climbing plants. We spoke to the owner, Neil, and
learnt that the vast majority of plants were grown on the site. Run as a family
business, Neil and his wife have a combined 50 years of garden nursery experience.
INDOOR SALES AREA
Being a traditional nursery business, you wont find miles of cards, gifts and
toys for sale at this garden centre. But you will find a smallish indoor sales area
that stocks most things your average gardener would need.
Plant feeds, compost,
pots, spades, forks and lots more are here. The speciality at this garden centre is
home grown plants.
There is a gravel car park immediately adjacent to the main entrance with lots of
