Jack's Patch


This long-established garden centre lies in a stunning spot at the mouth of the River Teign. Just after the war, a flat capped character called Jack ran an allotment on the site, selling his produce and paying a rent to British Rail of just £15 a year... a sum to which Jack adhered, despite BR's best efforts, until the late 1970s! He eventually sold the land to the Hepworth family, who built up a thriving garden centre called Jack's Patch with a strong local focus, attracting customers from the area as well as visitors from many miles away.

We sell top quality growing stock, gardening products and garden furniture. We also have a fabulous giftware and greeting card department and at Christmas, an inspiring display of decorations, lights and trees. Our restaurant has panoramic views over the river and a soft play area.

We all look forward to welcoming you to the centre soon.
