Busy Bee is a local, family-owned award-winning garden centre with an array of items for both the home and garden: a gift & hobby craft shop, locally produced food area, garden living, pet care & aquatics and of course plants which are largely grown in our very own onsite nursery.
From October Busy Bee has Christmas World: the south coasts most popular Christmas experience, “2019 Winner for the South of England in The GCA Christmas Garden Centre Awards”. Christmas World offers the largest selection of festive displays on the South Coast and is a must visit attraction during the festive season.
The Olive Tree Restaurant at Busy Bee overlooks the plant area and offers a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, with seating for up to 180 people and a patio with stunning views of Brading Downs, which is ideal for al fresco dining in the summer months. Large parties and coaches can speak to our Restaurant Manager for all booking requirements. Daily cakes and delicious treats made on site by our patisserie chef, and pizzas made to order fresh from our Stone baked pizza oven. Take-away available.
