Otter Garden Centre started in 1964.

Join us as we celebrate 60 years

2024 is a very special year for us here at Otter as we are celebrating 60 years as a family owned and run garden centre.

That’s quite a milestone!

We started out as a tiny business in Ottery St Mary, when Marilyn and Malcolm White bought a plot of land and began growing vegetables and plants for local East Devon markets and customers.

The Otter Garden Centre family has blossomed to encompass seven beloved garden centres across the beautiful landscapes of the South West and surrounding areas.

We also remain a growing nursery, continuing to grow 80% of the plants in our garden centres.
