Plant Sourcing

We can offer a wide range of material including trees, shrubs, hedging and topiary in various shapes and sizes. With designers working year round, we can offer potted, bare root and rootball  specimens in season.

We have built up an extensive network of nurseries throughout the UK and across Europe with reliance on great quality at a good price. Lead time for sourcing items is usually 7-10 days.

We hold some bigger samples here at the nursery and will continue to increase our range.

So why not try us today for a prompt quote and convenient one-stop plant source shop.

We take bio-security very seriously and conform to strict plant passport procedures. 

What we grow

Our aim is to grow and supply plants where quality is paramount. All stock grown on site is hardened off to endure the British weather.

Our huge range of plants is ever expanding and encompasses both traditional favourites and latest ‘must haves’.  We frequently introduce new specialities from selected plant breeding programmes.

Currently we offer herbaceous perennials, alpines, grasses, ferns, potted bulbs, seasonal patio & succulents, herbs and potted vegetables. Grown in 9cm, 1, 2, 3 and 5 litre pots. We also offer shrubs, hedging & trees.

Prevention is better than cure in terms of pests and disease. Varieties susceptible to Vine Weevil are treated with Intercept and we use biological controls in summer. A strict watering regime, with a weekly liquid feed during the growing season leads to strong, healthy plants.

Herbaceous perennials

We specialise in a wide range of perennials to cater for both retail sales and landscaping work. As well as cottage garden favourites which we propagate ourselves, we have found a niche in the market for the very latest additions and varieties, sourcing cuttings from micro-prop labs and specialist growers.

Grasses

The popularity of grasses in planting combinations ebbs and flows over the years, but the last couple of years has seen a huge boom in demand for grasses!

Piet Oudolf and other key plants folk and designers have endorsed New Wave, naturalistic or prairie style of gardening. This trend incorporates block planting with grasses and reliable herbaceous perennials.

Ferns

For their versatility in damp or dry shade, in parts of the garden that are often seen as problematic, they are second to none.

Alpines

A very popular range of plants with our customers. Sold in 9cm and 1 litre pots, there’s always a pot full of colour to choose from. Our propagation techniques really shine through here, with some difficult to find and interesting varieties.

Potted bulbs

All our bulbs are grown using traditional methods in sand beds, ensuring tight, even growth and a quality end product. They are treated with a fungicide to prevent disease. The range encompasses popular garden favourites as well as some unusual additions. Bulbs are available from November onwards, with seasonal bulbs ready for the Christmas market.

Seasonal patio

We grow Summer and Winter patio plants, so no matter the season, we have plants available with plenty of colour. Our retail customer range is grown in 9cm,  1 and 2 litre pots, contract grown plants are also available in bedding packs.

Trees, shrubs, hedging and topiary

We have built up a broad portfolio of nurseries that are able to supply us with a huge range of material. Quality shrubs of all sizes, trees (including pleached) and hedging can be sourced year round, with both root ball and containerised plants.

Patio succulents

During the summer we offer some very interesting succulents, including some hard to find rarities. Ideal for pots on the patio, or indoors on a windowsill they’ll be sure to gain intrigue!

Herbs

We have a large selection of herbs throughout the season. Always an extremely popular seller, even more so magnified with the upsurge in home grown food. Our annual, perennial, edible, ornamental and medicinal herbs are grown in a range of pot sizes.

Environment

To lessen our impact on the environment, How Green Nursery pots & trays may be returned to us by appointment (we regret we cannot take back other grower’s pots). We are pleased to say all plastics accumulated at the nursery are recycled in conjunction with Plantpak Plastics. We are currently trialing the new taupe recyclable pot.

Rainwater is harvested from greenhouse roofs and held in water tanks for irrigation purposes. In recent years we have reduced our peat consumption by 25%.
