The Old Well Garden Centre is a family business, located close to junction 27 of the M5 just off the A38. Our loyal customers have seen us grow over the last 40 years from petrol filling station, selling cut flowers, to a garden centre with one of the best and largest range of plants, year round.
Our restaurant is a firm favourite, with delicious homemade dishes at fantastic value for money. You might also be tempted by our bakery with beautifully decorated homemade cakes and many other delights. In addition we sell all types of gardening products and garden furniture. We have a wonderful giftware department and during the festive period, an inspiring display of Christmas decorations, lights and trees.
Set in the heart of the Garden Centre, you can take in the beautiful views of the Brendon Hills. The new coffee bar serves coffee, cakes, toasted sandwiches, soup and more.
The Old Well restaurant has a traditional family feel. Our lovely home cooked dishes are served directly to your table. Enjoy a seat by the fire or in the conservatory to enjoy the fine views.
Pre-water seed drills
Sowing in dry weather is a risky business: once germinated, if the seedling dries out it'll quickly dry. If you have to sow in a dry spell, you can avoid this happening by pre-watering. Once you've hollowed out a seed drill, water it before sowing. Then cover the seed with dry soil, which acts as a mulch to prevent the moisture escaping and ensures your seeds remain damp until they germinate whatever the weather outside.
