Our Jack’s Patch garden centre joined the Otter family in July 2019. The site was purchased for a railway line to be built under the hills around Teignmouth and Dawlish, starting from Bishopsteignton. This was deferred with the advent of WW2 World War Two and the land instead was let on an annual tenancy of £15 per year. In 1977 British Rail realised that they still owned the land and informed informed the tenant, Jack Webber they were putting the rent up to £150. Local brothers Jeremy and Peter Hepworth who had been growing a range of pot plants in a greenhouse nursery took over the site but weren’t sure what to call it. Names such as Teignmouth Garden Centre were considered but they finally settled for the name of old Jack Webber – and it’s been called Jack’s Patch ever since!
