Welcome to Barters Plant Centre and Nursery

               September Open Days - 27th & 28th

Barters Open Days are back again - this time the sale of refreshments will be supporting the Macmillan Coffee Morning (Friday) and the Wessex MS Therapy Centre (Saturday). No doubt the range of cakes will be as mouthwatering as ever.


Amazing plants at amazing prices

After a busy production season, we have the widest range available at the moment...

  • 23,000 Shrubs
  • 22,000 Perennials
  • 3,600 Specimen Shrubs
  • 2,800 Climbing Plants
  • 2,600 Ornamental Grasses
  • 600 Hardy Ferns
  • plus a small range of trees 
  • And they're all available at virtually trade prices for two days only...what's not to like!
  • Autumn is a great time to plant as plants settle in before winter, need less watering than when planted in the spring and are then ready to grow away when the warmer weather arrives. 
  • So if you have a bed that needs replanting, a corner that needs filling or a hedge that needs to go in, come and see what we have to offer.
  • The nursery is closing each day at 4pm, so don't leave it too late! The Plant Centre is open from 9am till 5pm as normal.


                   Successful June Nursery Open Days 

Despite the heat, Barters Open Days were again a great success. With a tens of thousands of plants to choose from, trolleys were soon filling up as soon as the gates were opened on Friday morning. The refreshments were laid on in support of the RUH Forever Friends Appeal - the cakes were fabulous and needed eating quickly with it being so warm. Staff kept tunnels watered to try and keep the temperature down - dogs and customers were soaked on request!

                              Chris's Retirement

After 16 years working at Barters Plant Centre, Chris Smith has now retired. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues and our many customers. Chris has had a lifetime in horticulture working at the University of Bath and at Whitehall Garden Centre before coming to Barters. We had a little get-together to mark the occasion. Barters' boss Legh Walker said a few words paying tribute to his knowledge and commitment to helping customers. 
Two of his great loves are tea and Victoria Sponge, so after a cuppa and some delicious sponge, Chris was presented with a horticulturally-themed bone china tea set.
