NEWS FLASH!

POWDERHAM CASTLE

We are delighted to announce the purchase of Toby Buckland's Plant Centre at Powderham Castle. We started the handover last week and are settling in well .

 

The new Plant Centre will complement our existing Matford site and allow us to stock a wider range of plants, trees and hedging.

Toby says, “After almost five years of trading we have turned the Plant Centre into a well-respected local business and I look forward to seeing Urban and Rural Plants take it from strength to strength. While I will be sad to say goodbye to all our lovely customers, I’m dedicating much-needed time to our expanding Garden Festivals business which this year sees the addition of a new Harvest and Garden Fest at Forde Abbey in Somerset.”

It is a fantastic location with some fantastic views and we are really looking forward to the season ahead. Hope to see you soon!
