Garden Centre

The Vineyard Garden Centre offers a wide selection of top quality herbaceous plants, seasonal bedding, trees and shrubs, plus logs and all the tools, materials and ornaments you need to make your outdoor space bloom. We are open seven days a week throughout the year, including bank holidays, and pride ourselves on our friendly and expert service.

All profits support The Fifth Trust charity for adults with learning disabilities. As well as gaining valuable work experience in the garden centre, the Trust’s students are also involved in growing and nurturing many of the plants we sell, through our propagation programme based at our skills centre in Barham. You will also find a range of items made by students including bird boxes and bird tables, ceramics and greetings cards.

Our seasonal and all-year-round plant ranges include:

  • Herbaceous perennials and shrubs, roses and climbers

  • Spring and summer bedding

  • Vegetable and flower seeds

  • Fruit and vegetable plants and herbs

  • Spring bulbs

  • Fruit trees including apples, pears, plums, cherries, figs and many more (subject to availability – please call 01227 831052 to check what is in stock)

  • Ornamental trees ranging from flowering cherry and ornamental pears to Sorbus trees (mountain ash), Crataegus trees and many more

  • Hedging including hawthorn, leylandii and beech

  • Houseplants from late Spring to Autumn

  • Seasonal cut flowers

  • Hanging baskets and planters, made to order

  • Pot-grown and cut non-drop Nordmann Christmas trees (from the end of November)

 

We also sell everything you need to tend your garden: plant feeds, gloves, labels, garden tools, terracotta and plastic pots, wooden trellis and stakes, aggregates, weed suppressants, fertilisers, fleece and netting.

The Wood Shack

The Fifth Trust opened the Wood Shack to expand our crafted wood range to include larger items. We use locally sourced, sustainable timber to make anything from log stores and pagodas to garden benches and tables to our own or bespoke designs. If you want a unique handcrafted item for the home or garden just ask us and we will do our best to deliver.

Guided by an expert woodwork instructor, students join in all stages of production – cutting, sanding, staining and then delivering the completed product.

The Wood Shack workshop is at the Barham Business Park, opposite the Vineyard.
