Winderberry is one of the largest independent garden centres in the Windermere Valley. We are stewards of the horticultural industry, trying to be mindful as possible about our environment and health of our community. This year we are celebrating 33 years of business ~ and in that time we have never used a chemical herbicide or pesticide on our property, nor have we promoted or sold such products.
We are a family owned and operated business providing our customers with innovative plant material and design. Our philosophy remains deeply rooted in our values of promoting healthy living through growing sustainably. Winderberry offers many different gardening experiences: annual flower production, hanging baskets & planters, perennials, trees & shrubs, soil products, conditioners & mulch, organic seed, fertilizers & manures & natural biological controls, and cut flower bouquets.
