Please check their own website for up-to date opening times, as they are no longer open on Mondays. They also close for the whole of January, February, October and November. Strictly speaking, they are a nursery rather than a garden centre and do not in fact have "many other gardening products" as stated here. It's mainly just plants, really excellent alpines and dwarf conifers, sold in beautiful surroundings and at very reasonable prices. Also, please do not phone the number you will find on the internet as that was never intended for publication and will only get you to their website manager in South Wales; the nursery itself is not on the phone. Contact them by visiting during current opening hours (Friday to Sunday only) or by post. They do not have a constant range of plants but aim to grow as many varieties as possible, with many slow-growing alpines only available in small numbers and for short periods. This does mean that on every visit you'll see alpines that were not on sale last time you visited. They are well worth a visit.

I have been going to the alpine centre for many years. Having a steep garden, I have needed plants suitable for scree and rockery sites. The centre grow their own plants, and sell many varieties. They also have miniature conifers, that I have not seen elsewhere. They provide good advice and are always willing to discuss their plants. I have seen people buying very specialised plants there for container/scree. It’s also a nice drive out there. Not far from Bakewell and Chatsworth. You can peruse the plants at your leisure, then ring the bell for attention.
