About Us


Welcome to Tyne Valley Garden Centre, a friendly, family-run business with a passion for plants. You’ll find us in the village of Mickley, high on the valley side, with fantastic views over the beautiful Northumbrian countryside.

Our roots go back to the 1920s, when the enterprising village cinema owner branched out into market gardening. Back then, as well as growing flowers and vegetables, the main trade was selling leek and tomato plants to the mad-keen pitmen gardeners. Some of the original timber glasshouses from that period are still standing - we like to look after things!


We still stock plants of all kinds, from trees to alpines, houseplants to climbers, and, of course, plenty of fruit and vegetables, including leeks!

Nowadays, we also offer seeds, feeds, tools and pots, everything you need to keep you gardening. When you’ve finished your garden jobs and want to relax, we also stock a range of garden furniture, from individual seats to full dining sets.

Our well-stocked aquatics department covers the needs of both ponds and tanks, with food, dry goods, plants, and the fish themselves! We also have a gift shop with a little bit of everything, including jigsaws, home décor, cards and toys.
