Garden Centre and Plant Nursery
First and foremost, The Secret Garden is a traditional garden centre with over 30 years of experience, and a specialist nursery propagating unusual top-quality plants.
Our Restaurant, Sally's Tea Rooms, provides a delightful setting for meals and drinks with a view of the Gwent countryside.
The Secret Garden is proud to be a small independent family business. We work closely with local suppliers and companies and continue to develop while maintaining the site's unique character.
We're a 'gardener's garden centre' that's also accessible for people with disability with disabled toilets in the tearooms and a wheelchair-friendly (wheelchairs available at the garden centre).
History of The Garden Centre
The oldest parts of the farmhouse are around 400 years old. The Williams family has worked at the farm for four generations. Over the years, the farm has seen many changes. In 1970, Brian Williams decided to start growing and selling bedding plants and running the dairy farm. The first glasshouse by the roadside was built, which you can still see now.
By the 1990s, the garden centre had flourished and expanded. The main farm buildings are still recognisable. The addition of the polytunnels made it possible to propagate unique plants and create hanging baskets, part of our business which we are still known for today.
The Secret Garden has established a reputation as a source of interesting and unusual top-quality plants, which still continues today. We grow over 25 000 plants on-site and specialise in growing unique plants. Discover varieties you've never seen before. Also, we create our own hanging baskets filled with stunning summer-blooming plants, such as petunia, lobelia, fuchsia, geranium, ivy, and many more.
