We are Open!

Please help us to protect your safety by observing the following:

  • Do not enter our premises if you or any person in your household has shown Covid-19 symptoms within the past two weeks!

  • Please use the left-hand doors to enter our premises (marked Entrance) and exit through the till area.

  • At the current time we are only able to accept debit or credit card payments – this is to protect you and our staff by removing the need to handle notes and change.

  • We will be limiting customer numbers within our centre. A colleague will be placed near our entrance door. You will be given a trolley which has had its handle sanitised (please help us by returning your trolley for cleaning after you have completed your shop).

  • Please ensure you maintain a 2-metre gap between yourself and other customers and our staff. We have placed floor markers to indicate queueing positions for the till area. 
    When you reach the front of the queue please place your trolley in front on the line as indicated and step back behind the Perspex protection screen. We will then scan all the items ready for you to pay – the card machine will be located on your side of the acrylic screen (contactless payments can be made for sales under £45).

  • Please be respectful of colleagues and other shoppers. Anyone who is abusive will be asked to leave. 

  • To facilitate regular deep cleaning please note our slightly reduced opening hours. Monday to Saturday 09:30 to 16:30 & Sunday 10:00 to 16:00 

In accordance with directions from HM Government:

  • Camelia Botnar Coffee Shop & public toilets – are closed

  • Camelia Botnar Pirate Ship Play Area – is closed

Thank you for your support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon.


The Camelia Botnar Garden Centre is a 5 acre nursery selling quality plants and goods made by our trainees under the training of our Award winning craftsmen. 

Camelia Botnar Garden Centre has a great selection of plants, shrubs and trees in stock to view at your leisure. The plant lover will enjoy the high quality and variety of our products. Take time to walk around our displays of home-grown seasonal bedding —all at competitive prices.

Apart from colourful displays of plants and flowers, our Gift Shop and showrooms have displays of cards, goods and gifts. We have a varied  selection of local produce  such as  Deerview and Auntie Vals chutneys and jams, jewellery and soaps. 

Our Gift vouchers for £5, £10 or £20 can be used in our nursery or our Gift Shop. We are constantly striving to expand our range of gifts and wares so if you are shopping for the person who has everything, we are confident you will find something here.

Our showrooms are full of beautiful, hand-made bespoke items made by our metalwork department trainees and specialist craftsmen. Each piece is traditionally hand crafted, resulting in some truly original and innovative pieces. 

Our Coffee Shop is open for teas, cakes and sandwiches and light lunches.

We have ample space for parking and you can even get your car washed whilst you are walking round the plants of having a cup of tea!
