The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery
The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery is not only one of the country’s finest garden centres, there is also an award-winning café and a stylish shop full of beautiful homeware, gifts, clothes and children’s toys.
Plants – We very much believe in putting the garden into “garden centre” and a visit to the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery can seem more like a garden visit rather than a shopping trip. From shrubs and trees to raspberries and bedding, we have a wide range of first-class plants for your garden. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned gardener, our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team will be glad to help you make the right choice for your garden. So please don’t hesitate to ask one of us to assist you if you need some advice. If you are coming to browse there’s plenty for you to see, from herbaceous perennials to an excellent range of shrubs and trees.
Café - Using locally-produced ingredients and all that is best in Cornish produce, the café serves breakfast, snacks and light lunches every day from 9am until 4.30pm (10am on Sunday). From the terrace, you can take in the location and see the full extent of the nursery. It’s also the perfect place to browse through the daily papers and gardening books with a fresh coffee.
In summer, you can enjoy delicious sandwiches, seasonal salads and homemade bread and cakes with a glass of sparkling Camel Valley wine or a magnificent Cornish cream tea, which cannot fail to hit the spot. In autumn and winter there’s a glorious log fire in the grate of the café’s huge stone fireplace; just the place for the cosy comfort of a warming bowl of soup.
Focusing entirely on Cornish suppliers wherever possible, our talented team of chefs produce virtually everything on site, prepared freshly on a daily basis. The service staff excel at extending a genuine welcome to all customers and the relaxed atmosphere within the café is complimented by the calm, comfortable and contemporary décor.
Shop - Our garden and gift shop is housed in a handsome cob building with a high-beamed oak ceiling. The shop décor is an eclectic mix of recycled lighting, unusual old cabinets, dressers and furniture, all creating a relaxed atmosphere and style, highly conducive to browsing and purchasing. If it is a garden necessity, a birthday or Christmas present, or even a treat for yourself, you’ll be sure to find just the thing at the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery.
As well as tools and seeds, there are beautiful pots available for both the garden and the home. There are traditional terracotta, fibre-clay and colourful RHS pots. For interior displays, we have elegant and custom-made Duchy of Cornwall pots. Just as importantly, we have the compost and plants to fill the pots with!
