A brief history...
Clent Nurseries is a family run business which started out growing tomatoes back in 1976. 40 years later, it has grown to be one of the most popular Garden Centres in the area. Throughout its progression, we haven't taken our eye off the ball from where we started, still growing most of the plants here on site.
We're proud to be local growers of almost all of our plants. We have almost 7 acres of land and greenhouses in which we grow flowers and plants 365 days a year. We have a hard-working, dedicated and motivated team of staff, who are very friendly and are always willing to give a helping hand. With our homegrown plants, the retail side has diversified into other aspects of gardening and leisure, along with also establishing a super restaurant/coffee shop which has now been running for 14 years.
The difference we have over other Garden Centres is that it is a family business and we care about how things are presented, the atmosphere of the centre, the quality of staffing and above all, we pride ourselves on value for money. With easy access from M5 we have a captive audience from Wolverhampton, Worcester and Birmingham, this being just a 30 minute drive, we think it's well worth a visit if you haven't tried us yet!
The nights may be getting longer and the days cooler, but your garden will still need plenty of TLC throughout the autumn and winter months. Clent Nurseries, a thriving family-run garden centre founded in 1976, has all the plants, equipment, furniture and, crucially, the in-depth knowledge you need to get the most out of your garden, whatever its size, shape state or soil type. The customer experience has been enhanced in 2017 with a resized shop layout, featuring a new bird care area which will inspire you to attract more of our feathered friends to your garden. If you've set your sights on creating a vivid show of colour for springtime, a wide selection of bulbs will stir your imagination. There are plenty of hardy shrubs to choose from too.
Located on 14 acres in Bromsgrove Road, the business has evolved over time from a small tomato nursery run by owner Peter Rampton to a site which grew plants for his landscaping business and now, more than 30 years on, to a garden centre with 27 full and part-time staff offering a wide range of home-grown plants plus specimen plants from Italy.
Peter's son Phil Rampton said: "We've got many loyal customers who have supported us since the early days and we're also increasingly popular with families who can enjoy a leisurely day out in the countryside and visit our coffee shop and restaurant."
Over the years we've built an impressive reputation for producing thousands of high quality hanging baskets to suit all budgets and our garden furniture section with both rattan and cast aluminium items is one of the largest in the West Midlands.
"Our helpful staff are always on hand to offer advice about any of the plants we sell" Phil added.
Clent nurseries is open from 9AM to 5PM from Monday to Saturday and from 10AM to 5PM on Sunday. The coffee shop, which offers a comprehensive menu including a choice of breakfasts, sandwiches and baguettes, main meals and specials, is open seven days a week from 9:30AM to 3PM, and serves hot food until 3PM.
