Glebe Garden Centre was purchased by Cherry Lane in February of 2016. There are exciting plans ahead which have already begun with a new outdoor decked area for Chives Coffee Shop. The garden centre will continue to expand over the coming years as the Cherry Lane team push the business forward.

Glebe Garden Centre was one of the very first purpose built centres to be constructed on a green field site and was officially opened by Cyril Fletcher in spring 1974 just outside of Countesthorpe, Leicestershire.

The Proprietor at the time was Mr Roy Carter who had very strong interest in gardening. In 1979 Mr Carter and his family moved to the Isle of Man, and Glebe Garden Centre was taken over by Mr Bernard Hanraads and Mrs Mary Knifton. Bernard was employed originally in the Planteria and Mary was Roy's secretary. Sadly, Mary passed away in February 2004. Bernard retired when Cherry Lane purchased the site and still lives locally.

In 2005 we began hosting the local annual family bonfire firework display which now attracts more than 3500 people each year. A large donation is made from the proceeds to the local Scout group. Over the past 10 years we have raised more than £15,000 for local charities and this is ongoing.

We pride ourselves on a warm and friendly, family feel with a wide range of products for every customer, why not come and visit us, have a coffee or cup of tea and enjoy the shopping. As well as a huge selection of plants, trees and shrubs, Cherry Lane Garden Centres stock extensive ranges for the Home and Garden, as well as catering for the needs of your pets and wildlife, offering great value Christmas products and fantastic offers on Toys to keep the children happy. We really are more than just a Garden Centre.
