Final Public Open Weekend of 2019
Roll up, roll up folks! Take this opportunity to visit a strictly trade only nursery and growers to the Chelsea Flower Show.
We are welcoming all on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September – including little ones and well behaved doggies. Join us to purchase some of our beautiful plants and eat homemade cake and drink tea in our gorgeous nursery garden. We only open three times a year and this is your final chance to come and visit us in 2019!
September is a great time to plant, not only for late season colour for this year but for enhancing the garden for next year. The ground will be warm, encouraging plants to develop healthy root systems before the onset of Winter.
Feel free to bring some clear skies and sunshine too please!
This year is flying by at a tremendous rate of knots! It’s the end of November & Christmas is only a whisker away! Whilst gardeners are putting their gardens to bed for the Winter, designers & landscapers go up a gear.
Autumn/early Winter is the best time to plant trees, hedging and shrubs, especially bare root & rootball material. The ground is still warm, encouraging root growth and there’s moisture in the soil. Come Spring, the plants will be established and be ready to flourish for the coming year!
We’ve been busy supplying our customers with some lovely hedging, trees (including pleached & espalier) and big shrubs. As well as our own stock we have a wide network of suppliers meaning we can offer the ‘one stop’.

Plant now for best results!
After a pretty good Summer with long, warm sunny days, there’s definitely a nip in the air and dewy mornings! Autumn is well and truly upon us and the perfect time for planting. Historically this time of year is the best time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials, with the ground warm and moisture in the soil (hopefully – we need some rain!)
We have been busily potting up the last few months and the nursery is now brimming with lots of fresh new perennials, grasses and ferns. As well as firm garden favourites, we also have plenty of brand new plants to choose from.
To complement what we grow ourselves, we also offer a plant sourcing service. We have a broad spectrum of growers throughout the UK and Europe we can rely on to offer you trees (including pleached), shrubs of all shapes and sizes, hedging and for the next few weeks, loose bulbs.
So why not give us a go and send us your quotes. We’re very prompt at replying and competitive when it comes to price. All that’s left to say is, ‘Happy planting’!
A hatrick of accolades at worlds greatest flower show!
What a year it has been here at the nursery! We’ve been so busy and this year we have been involved with the Chelsea Flower Show more than ever! The previous four years, we have supplied one garden with plants, but this year we have grown for three!
We were honoured to grow for the Meningitis Now charity in the artisan category. Being their thirtieth anniversary year, the exposure they got was priceless! The garden was designed by John Everiss who has shown at Chelsea before. John used cutting edge technology using a 3D printer to construct life-size sculptures of individuals who have (and currently have) the disease. We grew all the herbaceous for this garden and they deservedly won a silver-gilt medal and more importantly ‘People’s choice’!
We also grew the hardy annuals for the gold medal winning Jo Thompson ‘Chelsea Barracks’ garden. A beautiful contemporary English rose garden – an amazing garden!
Lastly, but not leastly, we supplied the herbaceous perennials for the David Harber trade stand, designed and put together by Nic Howard. It was like no other trade stand, as Nic put together a stunning garden to display the sculptures. It turned heads and won many admirers, including a 5 star award and best trade stand in show!
A great return and we’re proud to have helped with all three projects! The dust has not yet settled, but we already have some exciting news for Chelsea 2017 – watch this space!!
How Green Expands it’s Offerings!
Our speciality here at the nursery is herbaceous perennials which are all grown and nurtured here at the nursery.
Our garden design/landscape customers are frequently looking for other material such as trees and shrubs to compliment their herbaceous planting. We have been working hard the past twelve months, building up a portfolio of growers throughout the UK and Europe who can offer us quality specimen plants.
Please do not hesitate in contacting us for a quote on just about anything – the world’s a small place nowadays!
We had a lovely delivery of pleached Carpinus betulus for a client last week – he was thrilled to bits with them!
