Garden Shops

WE only grow hardy herbaceous plants available for sale.  Most of the plants for here are produced on the nursery by traditional methods from plants displayed in the gardens. We are a selective growers, propagating only the plants which we believe to be hardy and garden worthy. Most plants hold the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

The nursery provides visitors with the chance to purchase plants they may have seen growing in the gardens and feel that they can’t live without! We can usually grow to order for you if we’ve sold out.
