About Us

what we do

Set within the heart of South Holland is Birchgrove Garden Centre a family business where you are always guaranteed a warm welcome.

Knowledgeable staff

Each department has it’s own individual team members who are usually very enthusiastic and knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects within their own particular department, further details of this can be found by looking at the relevant departments page, where you will find more information about the kind of products we stock along with the type of information available within the department.



We have our own on-site car park, with hard standing for around 50 cars, along with a grassed overflow car park which can park around another 100 or so vehicles. The grassed area also has a large covering of trees which may help to give your vehicle some shade during the warmer summer days. When driving around the site we respectfully request you adhere to the 5 mile per hour speed limit.



Throughout the year we hold a number of events on site from dog shows to craft fairs, details of all events can be found on our website and facebook page, so be sure to follow us and check back often to see what we are up to.


Dogs welcome

We welcome dogs onto our site, in all of the shops and the outside shopping areas. We do request that if using the coffee shop, you use the outdoor seating area with your dog as they are not allowed inside the coffee shop due to hygiene regulations. We request that dogs are kept on leads, and advise people that we do have a variety of animals on display particularly around the pet department.  Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas. Please be a responsible owner and clean up after your pet.


The background to Birchgrove Garden Centre

Birchgrove Garden Centre opened its doors to the public on Thursday 12th April 1973. The brainchild of Adrian Moerman, the garden centre was built on land at the front of his pot plant nursery in Pinchbeck.

The original site (around 6 acres) consisted of a garden shop, outdoor plant area and portacabin selling pigeon corn.

In 1990 the Slinger family took over the business and Birchgrove has remained with them to this day. Over the years many alterations and improvements have been made including the addition of 2 steel clad buildings, one of which now houses the garden shop, the pet centre Megapets and equestrian store Bettertack. Other additions include a coffee shop, Flower Bulb Museum (NOW CLOSED) and covered outside area.

Staff are always friendly and helpful. Have a vast amount of knowledge that comes in handy. I always buy my pet supplies from here, wouldn’t go elsewhere. Lovely coffee shop with big lounge sofas.
