Guaranteed to Grow!

We are so sure of the quality of our plants, that we offer you the following guarantee^

Hardy Plants (outdoor plants such as shrubs, conifers, climbers and other similar woody plants) are covered for 5 years.

Trees come with a lifetime guarantee

If your hardy plant/tree fails to grow and thrive within the first 12 months after purchase, we will replace it with the same or acceptable similar plant/tree. After that we will endeavour to inspect (if it cannot be brought into the centre) and replace any plant material giving cause for concern, provided it has been planted, watered and cared for as indicated in the 5 Steps to Growing Success for Hardy Plants and Trees below.

Perennials and bedding plants are guaranteed within season (whilst they are on sale in the garden centre)

If your perennial/bedding plant fails to grow within season, we will replace it with the same or acceptable similar plant, provided it has been planted, watered and cared for as indicated below.

Viburnum Bodnantense

5 Steps to Growing Success for Hardy Plants and Trees

  1. Choose the right plant for the right site (check the label or ask our staff for help if you are not sure). When you get home, water it well whilst still in its pot.
  2. Mark the chosen position and dig a hole deep enough to take the root ball comfortably. Apply mycorrhizal fungi to rootball and put a thin layer in the hole as well.
  3. Carefully ease the plant out of its container and gently loosen some of the roots from the base. Put the plant in the hole and fill the space around it with the compost/soil mixture, making sure the plant sits firmly in its planting hole. If a stake is needed, e.g. for trees, it can be placed in the hole with the plant at this stage to avoid damaging the roots by pushing it into place after planting. Trees should be staked and tied firmly right from the start and checked at regular intervals to make sure they haven’t become loose.
  4. The compost round the new plant should be level with the surrounding ground but leave a slight depression around the stem to act as a reservoir when you water. Cover the new planting with a mulch, such as chipped bark, and water well.
  5. Make sure your plant doesn’t dry out in its first year, not only in dry sunny periods, but in dry windy weather as well and even check it regularly during a rain spell. A thick layer of mulch will help retain the moisture as your plant is growing and even when its fully-grown. Whilst a regular watering is important, too much water can be equally harmful, so check that your plants don’t get waterlogged in periods of heavy persistent rain.

Wow, what a transformation they've had since I last visited. It's three times the size! Due to Covid-19, new restaurant/café wasn't open, but again, wow, very impressed. Friendly staff as well. Animals (birds and goats) to look at and some for purchase. Other new, not yet open, buildings accessed through the car parking area. Will be back!!

Was really looking forward to it opening again, and wasn't disappointed. There were '2 metre' notices and markers everywhere. Enjoyed my look around, and didn't miss out on coffee and cake either as it was takeaway.

Good large garden centre, we come 20 mins drive to get here. Wide variety of local produce from food to seeds and sheds as well as plants and trees. Also sell live poultry and caters for large animals like horses. Good for bird things but less so for cats. Good selection of alpines and pots. Have and will continue to return. I would bring my mum here.

Always a fantastic selection of products on offer - especially their Christmas decorations. Although it could be argued that you can find similar products for less money elsewhere, the quality at Bell is top notch and (usually) worth the premium. Only criticisms are the surface and layout of the car park (both poor) and the short opening hours. Other than that, it’s pretty much spot on.

This is a lovely and judging by the building work going on, ever expanding nursery with associated businesses around the site. These include a pet shop, vintage collectors store, hot tubs, clothing and a good cafe. They had an Amazing selection of plants and the biggest display of succulents I have seen when I visited in September but some of the plant display had been given over to many Christmas display counters. Also have a lovely selection of gifts, vases, outdoor clothing etc.Outside there are many more plants and also live poultry if you fancy having fresh eggs every day.Overall one of the best nurseries in the area and well worth a visit.

Visited for lunch yesterday. Café excellent. However, I was then overcharged for an item in The Shoe cabin's supposed sale. The cashier actually wrote a higher price on the tag, explaining that the existing price of £31.00 was 'a mistake'...She then wrote £44.00 on the tag before applying the sale discount!! I don't believe that this is legal? My friend and I were stunned with disbelief!

If you have not yet visited you are missing out! This is a fantastic place to go and explore. The garden centre has a great range of plants fro sure but this place offers much more. A poultry centre where you can view all types of poultry up close and buy some for your own supply of eggs! The cafe is tastefully created using old reclaimed brick and offers a great range of food and drinks. Then there are the other shops on site ranging from a wedding shop to a reptile centre where you often see snakes out in the open!

A our first visit to the Bell Plantation Garden Centre. Ideal place to stop for food and refreshments as it is located on a major road. Staff were very friendly and polite. Food was very good and well prepared. The beetroot spinach quiche was full of flavour. We sat outside but our bench didn't have a parasol and it got very hot and difficult to see as the white table reflected the sun light.
