Where did we begin and where are we now?
It began, in the year 1911, on a small allotment on the edge of Leicester. George Palmer and his wife Julia grew fruit, vegetables and flower crops to sell to the local community. Five years later George and a friend bought a six acre field in Narborough, at auction. They planned to have half each, and tossed a coin to see who had which half, then planted a hedge down the middle to divide it up. George's three acres became first a flourishing nursery which then grew into Palmers Garden Centre, which is now managed by the incredibly proud fourth generation Caroline and Robert
Palmer's now sells all you need for garden and home; plants, gardening accessories, gifts, homeware, furniture and outdoor features. There's something for everyone.
