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
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!

With the increased demand from garden designers and landscapers, we are also pleased to announce we are also now able to offer a very wide range of material. We now hold on site a full range of Taxus, Buxus and Bay in a variety of topiary
