Chepstow Garden Centre

Chepstow Garden Centre first opened its doors in 2002. A small, independently run garden centre with a focus on plants and keeping everything as local as possible, the garden centre grew in popularity.

In 2004, the landscaped gardens were added as a quiet oasis for visitors to enjoy. It was built to inspire gardeners of all levels, highlighting plants for different seasons and areas. It also allowed customers at the café to sit outside and enjoy the view. 2004 also saw concessions added to the site, in the form of an aquatics centre.

The garden centre continued to grow and in 2006 they opened Newhall Farm Shop. The Farm Shop was to continue the focus on keeping everything as local as possible, supplying wonderful, fresh, and most importantly local produce to the local community.
