Our Garden Centre

Greenshutters Garden Centre is based in the village of Fivehead, near Taunton in Somerset.  We are a garden centre with the emphasis on garden plants.

Greenshutters Garden Centre is open 7 days a week and stocks an extensive range of plants including trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, specimen conifers, magnolia, rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas and Japanese maples.


We are well known in Somerset for our large selection of trees and hedging plants including large, mature trees.

We also have bedding plants and hanging baskets for sale throughout the year. Our wooden greenhouse has recently been restored and we have benches for you to rest your feet as you wander around or sit and admire the fabulous view across the Somerset Levels to the Quantock Hills.
