*** NEW ***

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new web shop!  You can now order directly from our website and either collect in store, have a local delivery direct to your door, or posted out across the UK. 

New lines are being added daily so please be sure to check back and keep an eye on our latest additions!  Can’t see what you’re looking for? Give us a call today and we will happily help you find what you are looking for. 



We are very happy to confirm that we will remain open during the lock-down period in line with recent Government guidelines, as we are deemed essential.  Our stores will continue to trade as per usual, with the exception of our restaurants which will be closed from Thursday 5th November until further notice.

We are taking all the measures to ensure we are a Covid 19 secure environment and have extra sanitation stations on hand throughout the store.  

We are pleased to welcome you to St John's and our staff are on hand for any assistance required.

Local deliveries will still continue in accordance with Government guidelines with strict social distancing being adhered to.  Our ‘Call and Collect’ service is also still available. 

North Devon’s leading garden centre based in St.John’s Lane Barnstaple. Our family run business has been providing quality horticultural products and services to local and regional domestic and commercial customers for over 55 years.

We have recently expanded and now have a sister garden centre at Ashford – between Barnstaple and Braunton. We think you will be impressed by our revamped restaurant – The Garden Room – and new menu choices. Over the coming months we will be posting more information about the new centre and any further store changes we are making.


Sorry we don't have any events to display right now.



Buy some garden wares, a few plants, a sun lounger, a pot or two and… you will definitely need a break, in our very accommodating café! Relax with a coffee and homemade fruit or cheese scone, or if you are really famished our light or main meals are very moorish!

Welcome to Jungleland Enjoy the jungle trail

Walk along the jungle trail with a Prof St.John free guide. Answer the simple questions enroute (mum and dad might need help from the kids!), and enjoy the water falls, curvy bridge, fancy plants and wildlife along the way. In December we transform Jungleland to Winter Winterland – sorry you’ll have to wait for that!
