The Bow Garden & Aquatic Centre Story

Growing in Devon Since 1411

Thank you for your interest in the Bow Garden Centre story, and how our family-run garden centre has grown through our love for plants, gardening, and aquatics that has spanned generations.

To Care For Plants & Wildlife is in our DNA

Our Family Legacy

The Tucker family started farming in Devon back in the 1400s. The latest generation’s roots are still firmly in gardening and fish-keeping, with a huge passion for both.

Here at Bow Garden & Aquatic Centre, we offer everything you need for plants, gardening & aquatics. We are a family business, and pride ourselves on offering you excellent customer service with friendly, expert advice and great prices too.

Post Office

Our centre is at the heart of the local community, which is why we decided to add Post Office services to make banking & postal services more accessible.

Powered By Our Love of Nature

Our Sustainability Commitment

Here at Bow, we love all things outdoors & Devon, so it is in our DNA to care about nature and the impact we have upon it. Therefore we have signed up to support the Horticultural Trades Association sustainability pledge.

As a team, we have committed to being more eco-driven whilst creating your dream gardens. We are not perfect but are improving all the time.
