Henleaze Garden Shop

The Henleaze Garden Shop was founded by John Stenner in 1946, shortly after the Second World War. Back then John, and his wife Vera, had little to sell and would sit in the yard with only the shop's cat to keep them warm!


The couple persevered and over the years the shop grew into the Aladdin's Cave we know today - it is now the oldest independent business in Henleaze!

Henleaze Garden Shop now sells a massive range of goods including; indoor and outdoor plants, pots, seeds & bulbs, cut flowers, compost, tools, children's gardening equipment, pet supplies, gifts, vouchers, and so much more.
