The nursery specialises in flowering perennials, those gorgeous garden plants that add life and colour to our gardens and return year after year. We stock over 700 varieties, from old favourites like Lupins and Hostas to more unusual plants such as Pimpinella and Dictamnus.

The nursery is now closed to visitors until March 2017. See Visitor information for details of our 2017 opening times

Where our plants come from

We propagate most of our plants from our own stock plants in the gardens and our nursery stock beds in which you can see the parent plants at their mature size. We do buy in some new stock each year, using UK grown sources where possible. We always buy bare root or young plants and grow them on ourselves. Our customers regularly tell us how strong our plants are and how quickly they grow when planted out.

Environmental care

We think our plants should do as much good as possible, and as little harm, so all of our plants are grown in peat-free compost and managed without chemical pesticides.We use organic plant feeds to aid growth and biological controls for pests. To reduce plastic waste, we welcome the return of pots from plants purchased from our nursery.

Garden designers

We welcome plant supply enquiries from garden designers and can grow to order. Please contact Sue for further information.
