Fri 24 March - Sat 25 MarchLawn and Landscape Open Day

During the last two years on the Marston Road you will have noticed allot of changes at Queen Thorne Crossroads.

This is the new home of Sherborne Turf and Queen Thorne Landscapes. The Lawn and landscape centre.

As well as continuing to produce quality turf, supply soil, composts and mulches we now have developed a range of stock to aid the keen gardener.
Fertilisers developed by us, tools tried and tested by our landscapers. And an exciting range of garden machinery, mowers, strimmers, chainsaws, blowers and more to cater for all uses and budgets.

Our ethos is to be a hub for the keen gardener to gain knowledge, products and services. We are open 8am to 5.30 pm during the week and during the growing season on Saturday mornings.

We are holding an open day over Friday and Saturday (24th 25th )March and would love you to join us. You can register online 

Not only can you come and see how we have developed the site, but our new shop. To hand we will have experts in fertiliser, grass seed and garden machinery, to really help you kick start spring in your garden. As well as tea coffee and a bacon roll.
We look forward to meeting you at our open day, if not before.
