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.
Hardening sweet peas
Sweet peas that were sown under cover in January can start to be hardened off now. These are actually very hardy plants, and autumn-sown seedlings can survive the winter outdoors. But newly germinated seedlings, which were started with a little heat in January should now be slowly acclimatised to outdoor conditions. Put the pots of seedlings in a cold frame with the top closed. After a few days open the vents during the day but shut them at night. After a few more days leave the vents open at night as well, and a few days after that remove the lid completely. Cover the plants with bubble wrap if a sharp frost is forecast.
