Plant World Gardens
Our famous ‘Gardens of the World’
One of the floral delights of Devon, Plant World Gardens are laid out to represent each of the five continents of the world. Inspirational gardens from around the world contain countless rare and exotic plants seldom seen outside their native lands. A large mature cottage garden and Mediterranean garden completes the collection.
Established in 1985, Plant World is the culmination of plantsman Ray Brown’s lifelong ambition and has been featured on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. The magnificent views over the Teign Valley, from Dartmoor to the sea, provide the incredible backdrop to what will surely be a memorable visit. So if you are passionate about plants and gardens, Plant World is a definite ‘must-see’ during your visit to beautiful South Devon.
Opening times: The gardens are open from 9:30 to 17:00 daily, seven days a week, from April until mid October.
Admission prices: Day tickets are £3.00. Season tickets for unlimited visits are £10.00.
Although our gardens will appeal to everyone, we are a favourite venue for garden clubs and horticultural societies. Groups visit us from all over the country to spend an enjoyable day with us.
If you would like to visit as a group please confirm in writing or by E-Mail at least two weeks in advance. We recommend a minimum of an hour and a half to see the gardens and nursery; very keen gardeners often spend the day here. Visiting groups often split a day by combining a visit here with another garden nearby. Please request details if interested.
The Nursery and Shop at Plant World
Choice plants seen in the gardens may be bought in the Plantsman’s Nursery – a treasure trove of sought-after plants. Our nursery is well stocked, predominantly with herbaceous plants, with the emphasis on the rare and unusual. To enable us to keep prices low, many of our smaller plants are not individually labelled, but we give out DIY labelling kits at the nursery entrance, so do please make use of this facility if needed.
A brand new panoramic cafe offers high quality light lunches from local produce.
