Finding the right tools for the job

There is an amazing array of garden tools and sundries available to make gardening more convenient and less of a chore, whether you are an amateur or professional gardener.

We always look out for what’s new on the scene, from irrigation systems to weeding gadgets, power rakes to cordless trimmers. Alongside innovative products we carry a huge range of traditional tools including forks, hoes, pruners, shears, edgers, trowels and wheelbarrows.

And what good gardener doesn’t appreciate the right gardening wear? At Otter Nurseries, you’ll find gardening gloves for every occasion, gardening aprons and a great selection of wellies.

Plant food is paramount to keeping your blooms at their best throughout the summer and helping your container grown fruit and vegetables to reach their best, so we keep in stock the widest variety for you to choose the right feed for your gardening requirements.

Although we choose to use biological controls rather than chemicals in our growing nurseries, we do understand that some gardeners prefer to use traditional pesticides. We stock many different options to keep your pests under control, and are happy to discuss alternative methods with you.

We always have thousands of other gardening essentials available ‒so if you’re looking for something specific, please ask a member of staff.

Recycling garden tools

If you have broken or unwanted hand tools, simply drop these off at the recycling points at our Ottery St Mary and Plymouth garden centres. They will be taken to Dartmoor Prison to be restored, then donated to schools and community gardens. Click for more information.
