Hello & Welcome to Conkers!
The Garden Centre is now fully open but we still have hand sanitizer at the entrance and screens at the tills for the time being.
The Riverbank Tearoom is open too, with well spaced tables and waitress service.
The Dog Cafe was a pop up in 2019 but sadly was not a success, so has closed permanently. It has not been open since March 2020 and neither have dogs been allowed in store since then. Sadly there were too many unreported incidents of dogs messing, so the decision was made to no longer allow dogs in. Sorry for any upset this might cause but it was becoming a problem.

Most 'bug boxes' contain hollow stems in which insects such as bees, lacewings and ladybirds will be happy to hibernate. Install in a sheltered location that is exposed to the morning sun.
Hanging baskets make a bright splash of colour against a wall or fence, filled with brilliant scarlet pelargoniums or tumbling begonias. But don't just stick to bedding plants this year: try planting baskets which are productive as well as beautiful.
Edible hanging baskets are a great way…Read more
