Who are Monkton Elm?

Monkton Elm is a proudly independent, family-owned garden centre business that has been at the forefront of making gardening accessible, rewarding and enjoyable for over 40 years.

Our vision is to inspire and assist our customers to get the most from plants and our natural surroundings. We pride ourselves on offering a memorable garden centre experience, delivering wow customer service and giving employees, customers, suppliers and our local community a reason to visit and be happy.

Our friendly, knowledgeable and hardworking staff are always on hand to share their vast wealth of knowledge on all aspects of gardening and creating green living spaces. 

Our large covered shopping areas allow you to visit whatever the weather, and you can always enjoy a delicious home cooked meal or cream tea in our lovely Elm Tree Restaurant or a quiet coffee overlooking the ducks in our Pondside Café. Our Pet Shop offers delicious healthy natural foods and all the accessories for those equally special, smaller (and often stinky) members of your family. 

Monkton Elm has received the prestigious Garden Centre Association’s Destination Garden Centre in The South West award on two occasions, confirming it’s status as one of the leading garden centres in Taunton and the South West. 

Our late founders, David and Luella Bellman guided our company on its journey to becoming the truly unique business it is today. The care of our beloved family business has now passed onto the next generation of the family and we can’t wait to welcome you to our family garden centre and restaurant to join us on these next steps along Monkton Elm’s journey.
