The Pot Place Garden Centre Coronavirus opening update

Just to let everyone know we’re not opening our doors just yet but Soon!

We are in the process of completing our New Entrance at the moment so we can open in a safer and more controlled way a few weeks from now.

Until then we are extending our delivery service to cover a larger area. We can now offer delivery to you if you are within 15 miles.


You are now able to order your compost and other items via our online shop. Click Here to enter the Shop

We will continue to add things including plants as quickly as we can and as they become available. If you follow us on Facebook, we will post updates letting everyone know when things are added.

We are still only able to deliver things which are easy for one person to manage as there are still only two of us

Payments will be taken securely on the website and deliveries will be made where the 2-metre recommended social distancing advice can be adhered to. Whoever delivers, (Paul or Kevin) won’t need a signature, just a safe place to put your delivery.

We are currently delivering within 15 miles of The Pot Place but this will be a temporary thing and we will continure to expand this as soon as we can.

There will be a minimum order value of £25 and delivery is charged at a £1 per mile.

Orders over £50 will be delivered free of charge.
