The two main residents are Rhubarb, the fun loving, apple-stealing collie and Tori, mainly known as Poocher, the shiny black labrador who will be found in the sunniest spot at the nursery, fast asleep. Both are full of fun and Rhubarb especially will bring you a bedraggled toy to throw for her. They have a fantastic life at the garden centre, being free to wander, play or sleep as the fancy takes them.
Towards the end of the week there is often a third addition to our pack of pooches, Ellie is an elderly rescue Spaniel who belongs to Della and is often resident in the perennial tunnel. You may see her, and often the other two, taking a walk in the field next door at lunchtime. Poocher is happy to spend hours wandering in the field pretending she is a hunting dog, much to all the resident rabbits' amusement.
Because we have our own dogs on site, we regret that customers' dogs are not permitted. We will be happy to keep an eye on yours out front and provide water and shade while you browse.
