Ken Bailey at Wistow

Established in February 1999, Ken Bailey at Wistow is an independently owned garden centre based in the picturesque setting of rural south Leicestershire.

Located within Wistow Rural Centre, with the popular Wistow Maze across the road and Wistow Hall as our neighbours, our Leicestershire store boasts an original Georgian walled garden and a Grade II listed vinery.

Starting simply with only one greenhouse, our store has grown and developed over the years. Here at Ken Bailey at Wistow, we are passionate about plants, priding ourselves on offering our customers high quality plants, ranging from our home-grown seasonal bedding plants to specimen plants. Catering for every size of garden, whether you are looking for something to fill a space or wanting plants to start afresh, we have experts on hand every day to advise and guide you to your dream garden.

We don’t just sell plants though. Our store has a large area dedicated for everything you need to do the gardening. We have a vast range of fertilisers, compost, tools, plant support, pots, watering aids, aggregates and so much more. In our specialised Garden Living area, you will find our large range of garden furniture on display, with other architectural garden items such as water features, stone statues, arches to name a few. And let’s not forget our ever-popular Bird Care range.

At the beginning of 2022, we opened our own florist, Bailey’s Blooms, situated next to our garden centre. Selling both fresh and dried flowers, our dedicated florists create bespoke bouquets and arrangements every day, for every occasion. For more information, visit
