Mr Cameron and an entourage of 10 arrived at about 11am this morning, unannounced for a coffee break on their way to official business with the Royal Marines in Plymouth.
Mr Cameron was happy to pose for photos with customers (an obligatory mother and baby) and staff.
One of his security team told staff that they were running ahead of schedule and so had stopped off at the garden centre, before arriving in Plymouth.
Rumours of his arrival sped around the garden centre in an instant.
The PM enjoyed a tea and an eccles cake which he 'very much enjoyed' he told Marketing Manager, Justin Avery. Another of his associates was very impressed with the tasty rock cake he ate during the groups elevenses!
The PM took time to sit with a group of customers, all representatives of The Pampered Chef, who explained their business activities to him and offered suggestions for the next budget.
Mr Cameron was escorted out of the building after 45 minutes, and was invited back any time he was passing!
