Sudbury is our second garden centre. Our first, Perrywood Tiptree in Essex, has been operating since the 1950s when Alan Bourne’s parents bought the land and called it Perrywood Nurseries – growing potatoes and pick-your-own strawberries. In 1984, Alan and wife Karin took over the business. Perrywood Tiptree is now an award-winning garden centre; number 3 in the UK garden centre league table in 2019 and 2020.
We took over Perrywood Sudbury (formerly the Wyevale Sudbury Garden Centre) on 24 September, 2018. We have made lots of improvements since including the new ‘Plant House’, because we are potty about indoor and outdoor plants. We’ve fully refurbished the Coffee Shop and are serving up our famously tasty homemade breakfast, lunches and cakes.
Our vision is to inspire people to get more plants in their lives. Our every day mission is to offer a memorable garden centre experience; delivering wow customer service and giving employees, customers, suppliers and our local community a reason to smile.
