Service, quality and knowledge are the three pillars upon which family-owned business, McLaren Vale Garden Centre, is based.

Dianne, Grant and Mel Prior have operated the garden centre for the past 35 years.

In this, they have been supported by employees Doug Caudle and Sara Long.

Doug previously operated with his brother Ivor, Caudle's Citrus Nursery.

Here they propagated and supplied Adelaide, regional and interstate areas with quality citrus trees.

Doug willingly shares his vast knowledge with garden centre customers.

There is currently a large range of citrus and other fruit trees available including dwarf trees.

The garden centre was first established in 1976 by Richard Lennon and his wife.

The shop had previously been a family home for many decades.

The building was initially a boarding house built by Jane Cook prior to 1910.

It was important in providing accommodation to workers when the railway line was built between Brighton and Willunga in about 1914-1915.

The shop now houses a large range of indoor pots and giftware chosen by Dianne and Mel and displayed by Mel and Sara.

A visit to the garden centre will reward anyone needing to purchase giftware.

Knowledge of plants is a cornerstone of this business.

Here qualifications in horticulture are backed by many decades of practical experience.

That experience is used in plant identification and plant advice that helps the customer make choices that best suit their soil and climate.

Inevitably competent advice can help homeowners avoid making poor and costly decisions when it comes to purchasing trees and shrubs.

Customers frequently seek advice on pest and disease identification and control.

Whatever the problem, the garden centre staff provide remedies that have the least impact on the user and the environment.

In stock is a range of organic and low toxicity sprays and fertilizers.

Grant, Dianne and Mel invite you to visit their garden centre to view their large range of clean healthy plants and fruit trees.
