November's offer in the restaurant is a cream tea (2 freshly baked scones, jam & cream, a pot of tea) for only 4.50, normally 5.90.
The garden is now closed (but still open to Merriments Club Members)
Merriments beautiful garden is now closed until the spring, you can however still visit the nursery, restaurant and shop all year round.

One of the benefits of being a Merriments Garden Club Member is that you can enjoy the garden in all seasons, including the winter.  The garden takes on a whole new atmosphere in the colder months, in late autumn you can admire the rich copper tones of the trees and all the berries and later on you can see the framework of the garden laid bare and the ponds look fabulous with the mists rising.

We are now taking bookings for Christmas lunches in our restaurant. These are always very popular at Merriments so please do book early!

Dahlicious dahlias!

Have you fallen in love with Dahlias yet?

We are big dahlia fans at Merriments, we love their jolly show-stopping colours and amazing forms. 

Our Dahlias are now 1/2 price!!

Plant of the month

Bulbs!  We know that they are not really 'plants' but they are going to make lovely flowers in the spring!  It is always best to visit us early to get the very widest selection of bulbs and to avoid disappointment. The earlier you get your bulbs in the ground the better they will be next year (although tulips are best planted in November). You will find a wonderful selection including daffodills, tulips, muscari, aliums, crocus, hyacinths and many more.

Landscaping service

We can take on all types of landscaping, from small planting jobs to major construction projects, from water features to decking and all types of paving. We have the experience to turn your project into reality!
