Staying Open. Staying Safe


Dear all,

Another day, another update!

We are getting in touch firstly to say thank you, we have been overwhelmed by your lovely messages of support, we’re so grateful to you all.

In line with government regulations, we have decided to keep all retail areas of our business open.

We have reopened our Coffee Shop for takeaways only - from Monday 15th February.

As always, the safety of our staff and customers is the most important thing to us, so we are busy today making sure all measures are in place for your return.

Thank you as always for your understanding and support in these confusing times!

With our best wishes

The Okells Team


All workshops are currently postponed.

A sanctuary of horticulture, goods for the home & popular cafe, designed to bring people together

Opened in 1981, Okells began growing heather plants and selling to garden centres up and down the country. Over time, we have slowly expanded our offer to an ever changing array of plants, trees, seeds and tools for the aspiring gardener to accomplished grower.

Alongside our garden shop lies our home store, stocking a range of wares sourced locally and internationally. Our cafe has a hearty range of wholesome British classics, and we’re proud to offer creative workshops teaching skills from painting to jewellery making, offering new skills and bringing people together.

We are very easy to find, just outside Chester, Cheshire, on the A51 between Tarvin and Tarporley. To find out about our latest events and what’s on, it’s best to visit our instagram or facebook page, please follow the links below.
