Founded in 2002 after years of growing hardy exotic plants but never being able to buy them locally, The owner decided to source and import them himself, The plants combined with a love for African art created the perfect recepie for an African garden centre. Sensation performed in the beautiful Tribute Eatery which is so authentic. For 2 of the members who have spent time in Africa they said it was just like being back there.
In the garden centre there are lots of life-sized metal sculptures of animals, sculpted by the world famous Kenyan artist Kioko Mwitiki. It is a truly a site to be seen.Back to News Archive
