Welcome to the new online home of F. Tate & Sons; Ripon’s friendly, knowledgeable, family-owned garden centre with more than 80 years and four generations of green-fingered experience at your disposal.
Our new site is a great resource in itself and we hope you’ll have a look around to see what we’ve got to offer.
You’ll find product pages that list some of what we have to sell – everything from gifts to garden lighting, alongside all the plants, seeds, garden tools, accessories and garden care supplies you could need – and give you the information to get started with them in your own garden.
You’ll also find a gardener’s calendar that you can refer back to as the seasons roll on, from when to plant your spuds to when to prune your fruit trees; we’ve included real practical advice for Yorkshire gardeners.
We’re growers as much as we are retailers, and gardening is a passion at Tate’s, so it’s a guide that’s grown from experience. That means our calendar is designed for climate conditions in beautiful North Yorkshire, so if you’re browsing from further afield you may need to adjust your timings a little.
We’ll be posting plenty more advice on this blog. And you can find us on Facebook. If you’ve got any questions then please head to our contact page or ask us on social media.
