About Pudding Lane

Pudding Lane was originally part of Newlands Farm used for cereal crop production. We purchased the land over thirty years ago and embarked upon creating an agricultural small holding. Technical advice was provided by the characters of "The Good Life". All the animals had names and guaranteed a long life. We turned to horticulture as an alternative enterprise in 1985 and have enjoyed the pleasure of plants and gardening ever since.

Our objective is to provide a tranquil environment in which customers can be stimulated to further enjoy the benefits of their garden and gardening as a recreation. We believe that our business success will be predicated on quality and good value.

We have in part already created an environment in which plants predominate. Our plans are to expand our displays, planted areas and plant production. The majority of the Pudding Lane site is supportive of wildlife. We have resident birds including pheasant, partridge, lesser spotted and green woodpecker, nuthatch to name a few. We have planted a wide variety of trees and will continue in the future in order to create a diverse parkland. Certain areas are left to develop naturally to provide a habitat for mice, voles, hedgehogs, grass snakes, butterflies and bees.

We are currently developing our own colony of honey bees with the help of Peter Seagrave from Wokingham beekeepers.

We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by the efficient use of energy and materials. We recyle plastics and green waste.

We are happy to accept plastic plant pots returned by our customers. These will be processed by Select Environmental services, a local waste management company.

We are committed to promote the use of environmentally friendly products. We offer peat free composts; organic fertilisers and pesticides.
