About Us

We are an independent family-owned group of eight garden centres, based across Central Scotland. Our centres are packed full of garden inspiration, great gift ideas and tasty treats in our restaurants!

Caulders was founded in 1999 by Colin and Mandy Barrie when they opened a small plant centre in Mugdock Country Park. Caulders have grown steadily and now have eight excellent garden centres and restaurants. Caulders employ an excellent team of over 200 staff, who aim to deliver the best in both garden retail and catering.

Managing Director of Caulders, Colin Barrie commented…

We know our customers have a huge choice of where to shop and where to eat nowadays, we continue to improve our business and aim to provide great products and offer excellent value for money. We appreciate every visit a customer makes to one of our centres.
