Walled Garden Plant Nursery




While we are not able to the cafe to the public in the current pandemic situation we have some lovely perennial plants that community groups have been growing over the winter months. I would be happy to met anyone at the garden by appointment if you want any plants.

Please email Sam on thewalledgardenatmells@gmail.com

We can take contactless payments in the garden and can ensure safe distancing practices. If you are isolating at home in Frome speak to Sam about dropping off some plants



We have an extensive range of hardy perennials and herbs are for sale through the season that will provide colour and joy to your own garden. We stock many of the plants that feature in the garden.


The polytunnels are used to bring on young plants, and act as a plant hospital for tired plants. We also grow most of the vegetables and herbs served in the cafe to bring you the freshest ingredients (pesticide free!!!).
