1780Pennells Logo (Normal)

Pennell's Garden Centre are Countryside Lincs’ proud sponsor for 2023. Read all about the remarkable heritage of this family-run business below.

Established in 1780, Pennell's Garden Centre is proud to be one of the oldest family-run garden centres in the country. Today, Pennell's has three centres, spread across Lincolnshire (Lincoln, Cleethorpes and Sleaford) all run by its eighth generation of the Pennell's family. All centres provide exactly what any gardener needs, with a wide range of plants (some grown on the company’s nursery based at the Lincoln centre) and outdoor furniture and decorations.

Pennell's isn’t just for the gardening fanatic, it also appeals to families, with each centre having a wide range of gifts, toys and games. It is also bringing back events, where you can meet an array of fun, exotic animals and birds!

After a wander around the store, why not have a sit down in the Gardener’s Restaurant provided at each centre? It’s the perfect place to relax and refuel after a shopping session; with a choice of hot meals, snacks or something sweet like their homemade cakes (all with a range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free option available).

If you think you might not be able to fit your purchase into your car - don’t worry, they’ve got you covered! With free deliveries on orders over £100, Pennell's can deliver your items straight to your door!

There really is no one with a greater pedigree in plants than Pennell's Garden Centre - providing the best advice from knowledgeable staff with years of experience - all happy to help, offering a five-year Hardy Plant Guarantee.
