About Us

Just 2 miles away from the historic Jurassic coast you will find Goulds Garden Centre nestled amongst green rolling hills in an area of outstanding Natural beauty.

Proudly independent, Goulds Garden Centre boasts a comprehensive selection of horticultural and outdoor leisure products and a well-stocked plant area. Our buyers travel far & wide to bring you the very best product selection with over 20,000 product lines in stock, sourced from in excess of 300 different suppliers & product manufacturers.

In addition to our core horticultural range we also stock an exciting range of gifts, greeting cards, indoor oak furniture, clothing, kitchenware and food which includes a new range of wines and ales from over a dozen local breweries. To complement our own product range we have invited several other businesses to trade alongside us. PamPurred Pets stock a wide range of pet food and accessories – Halstock Garden Buildings manufacture and erect quality garden buildings, sheds, summerhouses and livestock enclosures – Cotton Traders (a national chain of clothing retailers) stock a selection of clothing and footwear and Apple Home Improvements have a showroom on site, displaying conservatories, windows and other home improvement products. We also have Heritage Morso who retail top quality log burners and firepits and Granite Transformations, a company specialising in replacement kitchen worktops and fittings.

In turn we support a number of other local businesses, suppliers, service providers, charities, organisations and schools that operate in your local community.
