Welcome to the website of Metcalfes plant centre the home of quality garden plants all grown here by ourselves and sold direct to the public at realistic prices.

Metcalfes is a small family run business started by Tony and Marion Metcalfe in the 1950s.

The business has grown from just a few wooden greenhouses to over an acre of modern glass heated by carbon neutral biomass fuel.



Up to 1998 the glasshouses and the surrounding land were used to grow vegetables, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers for the wholesale markets. But the closure of many small local shops forced us to change to the production of ornamental garden plants sold direct to the public.


Because our tomato growing past left us with high quality glasshouses equipped with computer controlled environment we were able to move into garden plant growing on a very efficient scale. This allowed us to produce top quality plants and retail them at very competative prices.

We still devote 25% of the glasshouses for the production of quality tomatoes and cucumbers for sale on the nursery and at our fruit shop at Pickering. See our tomato growing page.
