About Dean’s Garden Centre

Dean’s Garden Centre is a family run business serving local gardeners for more than 45 years. Our York store in Stockton on Forest was opened in 1968 by Mr and Mrs Dean. The centre has gone from strength to strength growing to cover more than four acres. “The Bothy” coffee shop opened in 1991 and has been popular with customers ever since.

In 1986 Deans decided to expand further and bought a former cut flower nursery in Scarborough. This is now home to another successful garden centre with its own coffee shop “The Gardener’s Choice”

We produce our own Herbaceous perennials, vegetable plants, spring and summer bedding plants from nursery site. In the run up to Christmas we produce an excellent crop of cyclamen. Many of our staff are fully trained and happy to share their gardening expertise. Both coffee shops serve hot and cold meals and snacks all year round so you can make a trip to see us as a day out for the whole family.


Deans is very much a family firm. When Mr and Mrs Dean retired in 1993 their 3 children took over the day to day running of the business. We are proud of being a local family firm with strong roots in the community. Find out more >>
