Oakington Garden Centre
Oakington Garden Centre is an independent, family run business with over 30 years of experience in horticulture and garden design.
Originally established by Philip and Melanie Sadler in the early 80s it is easy to see just how much the business has grown and changed over the years, from its earliest form as a small nursery with shop attached, to the business as it stands today.
Throughout it all our passion for horticulture has remained the same and is at the heart of what we do. We pride ourselves on the strong relationships we have developed in the local community, with our suppliers and local designers/contractors/landscaper gardeners, and the service this allows us to provide our customers.
Since 2016 we have been keeping bees at Oakington Garden Centre, the bees in our two hives harvest the pollen from the flowering plants in our nursery and in turn we harvest their honey, often using it in our recipes at the Olive Tree Café.
The honey bee population has been rapidly declining for several years and so we are proud to do our bit to help protect these vital insects.
To find out more about what you can do to help the honey bee in your garden ask one of our friendly and informative staff members next time you visit us.
