Starting as a fern nursery over 90 years ago, Planters At Bretby has gone through many changes before becoming the blooming business it is nowadays. Assisting with most gardening needs of their patrons, the centre stocks compost and pots required to plant, as well as other equipment needed for the activity, together with a variety of seeds and bulbs coming with the advice on when to start them off. The shop offers garden furniture and bird feeders too, alongside gift items such as candles, jewellery and local food and brews. Animal-lovers can also find something for themselves with a corner pet shop specialising in the care and trade of birds, rodents and reptiles. A cosy, on-site restaurant invites for a taste of local fare and for a traditional afternoon tea. Planters gets especially active during holidays, organising ice rink rides, craft fairs and other festive events.
