Beautiful for everyone.
The Garden Centre and Mountain Restaurant is a small family run business, set in the heart of rural Leicestershire, just a couple of miles outside Melton Mowbray. We have been growing plants for over 23 years for you and your garden. We grow our own perennials, in our newly refurbished nursery, as well as shrubs and our own home grown roses. We grow because we love to and this reflects in our prices.
