The Gouldings moved to Dalpatrick in 1897 when Joe Goulding grew soft fruit to supply the markets. The soft fruits continued until the 1960’s when we started to grow lettuce, leeks, parsley, spring onions and a wide range of vegetables to supply Glasgow’s Fruit Market.
In 1992 we took a very large step in deciding to sell bedding plants direct to the public.
In 1997 due to cheap foreign imports of vegetables we were forced to devote all our time to growing bedding plants which has proven to be a great success.
We have never forgotten our roots though and know that only by supplying the very finest products and offering the best service and advice will we be able to continue to be successful.
We have invested heavily in refurbishing the Garden Centre and the Restaurant and are proud to have been awarded The Dick Allen Award for the Most Improved Garden Centre of 2011. We followed that award with the award for Best Garden Centre in Scotland 2012/13.
We believe that our philosophy of continual development will ensure that we always offer first class products along with great customer service well into the future.
