History to the Current Day at Bawdeswell Garden Centre

Peter and Judy Underwood purchased the garden centre in 1983. It was originally a conifer nursery and has grown from strength to strength to become Norfolk's premier independent garden centre.

Our team of knowledgeable staff are on hand to advise, help and assist you with all your gardening needs.

Our Reeve's Larder food hall stocks locally sourced produce including fresh meat, fish, cheese, bakery products, beers, wines, spirits, chutneys, jams and fruit and vegetables. We're also stock a large range of Cook's frozen meals - great for a quick meal solution & ideal for no fuss holiday meals!

All our departments are under one roof, including gift-ware, toys, garden furniture, cane furniture, oak furniture, books, cards, clothes, shoes, pet food and of course all your gardening requirements, from trees and shrubs, ornaments, pots, water features to composts, tools and garden buildings.

It is also well worth taking a moment in our famous Millennium Garden where you can take a seat, relax and admire the beautiful scenery.

Before or after shopping, why not enjoy a meal, coffee, tea or cake in our renowned Reeve's Parlour Restaurant. We aim to source as much of our food as locally as possible and it is always cooked fresh to order.
For something a bit special, why not treat yourself to one of our afternoon teas for two. These include sandwiches, homemade scones with clotted cream and jam, a selection of cakes and a choice of speciality teas.

We are proud of the extensive range of trees, shrubs, conifers and alpines available in in outdoor plant area and pride ourselves on offering the best quality plants, products and customer service within the whole of Norfolk and at competitive prices too!

Our garden centre certainly caters for everyone, from families en route to a holiday destination or simply shopping, to business people in need of a break - and with free Wi-Fi available in the Reeve's Parlour Restaurant, gives a great opportunity to catch up on emails and social media. Why not enjoy a hearty breakfast whilst doing so (served until 12:00pm!)

With easy and free parking, Bawdeswell Garden Centre really is an enjoyable experience for everyone - remember, we're more than just a garden centre!
