Orchard Park Garden Centre

Orchard Park Garden Centre

The garden centre, which is situated on an 8-acre site on the edge of Gillingham in North Dorset, becomes our 21st garden centre.

It has gone from strength to strength over the years successfully attracting a steady stream of customers with popular departments such as floristry, landscaping products for every garden project, plants, plant care, gifts, fashion and indoor & outdoor lifestyle ranges. The Orchard Café is a popular meeting place in the local area, offering freshly prepared seasonal dishes, cakes and pastries every day.   

The garden centre team are always available to provide you with advice, inspirational ideas and help with whatever your project or needs might be, striving to ensure you always have a memorable visit and experience.

The site has planning consent to triple the size of the covered retail area to 5,000 sqm. We hope to amend the planning permission and start work on expanding the garden centre later in the year.
