Brand New Seed & Grain Cafe & Coffee Shop

Chef Nick Male (founder of Loft restaurant in St. Albans) opened Seed and Grain in October and has created a great menu focusing on breakfast and lunch with both healthy and indulgent dishes. 

We have launched a shiny new menu for the summer, with lots of healthy and indulgent dishes for breakfast and lunch, suiting many dietary needs. 

Thank you so much for your support over the last few months. It has been incredible and has allowed us to keep the business ticking over while we have been closed and we are most grateful.

We’re delighted to finally welcome back our wonderful customers again.

We are a dog friendly business and we welcome dogs,  please note that we only allow dogs outside in our garden and outside covered seating area - only Guide dogs are allowed inside the cafe.

If you have any questions please do call us on 01582 943781

We are the Hertfordshire Garden Centre. Based in Redbourn on the outskirts of historic St Albans, our small, friendly and independent premises are perfectly suited for home and garden enthusiasts who rightfully expect a little more for their money. We always try to deliver a personal and helpful service to help our customers make the right product choices. From informed advice and friendly service to genuine value-for-money garden products, we serve our local community as a garden shrub stockist in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Giant pumpkins

The record for the biggest pumpkin in the world is a holy grail for giant vegetable growers: these days you need a forklift truck just to get your pumpkin to the showground for weighing.

Most of us can't manage pumpkins quite that big, but it's fun to see how big a monster you can manage.

Turn clay soils

Turn clay soil while it's still dry and reasonably manageable, leaving it in large lumps over winter so that the frost can help break it down. You'll find once the big clods are shattered by freezing they'll be much easier to work in spring: add well-rotted organic matter to boost nutrients, too.
