Christmas Pop-Up Plant Shop 2019

Come along to our first ever festive open week! Our Christmas Pop-Up Plant Shop will be open to the public and trade from Monday 16th – Friday 20th December. Doors open from 9am-5pm each day. Searching for that last minute gift? We’ll have a selection of Christmas bulb baskets filled with winter and spring favourites, as well as hyacinths, daffodils and snowdrops, hellebores, potted bulbs, seasonal shrubs, How Green Nursery gift vouchers, festive decorations for wreaths and garlands, Christmas refreshments and plenty of Christmas cheer!

Last How Green Public Open weekend for 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!

Ready for our Public Open Weekend Summer edition

We are open to the public again this weekend – come along, bring a friend and hopefully the sun will shine for us all!  We have a large selection of bedding plants, perennials, shrubs and herbs all being sold at prices much cheaper than garden centres so come and take advantage while you can.  PS – Did we mention that we are also selling delicious, homemade cake!

As you may be aware the GDPR has new legislation coming into effect on 25th May 2018.  We store details for the purpose of sending copies of our Availability Lists and news about Open Days and other events.  We do not actively market using information collected from outside sources, our mailing list is made up of previous clients and people who have requested our details.  We are now required by Law to obtain confirmation so that these mailings can continue.  If you haven’t replied to our email asking for this then you will no longer receive our communications.

A polite reminder that we are strictly TRADE ONLY except on our six open days each year

Sorry to disappoint, but unfortunately we have had to turn away some visitors who wished to look around and purchase plants. We are a Trade Only Nursery and as such our priorities have to be our regular customers. We have Open Days (see side panel for information) where the public can come in and purchase our plants and all are welcome on these days.  We would love to open our doors to everyone but this is not possible, so please do not take it personally. We hope you understand.

Come join us for our Spring Public Open Weekend

The signs are out, the chairs and tables set up, plants are behaving themselves and Jasper the nursery puppy is going bonkers!   We are welcoming all this Saturday and Sunday – including well behaved dogs.  So please bring yourselves, a friend or two and join us to eat cake, drink tea and purchase some of our beautiful plants. (Feel free to bring some clear skies and sunshine too please)

Public Open Weekends 2020:
18 & 19 April
6 & 7 June
5 & 6 September

We are a wholesale nursery, growing and supplying plants to the horticultural professions. However, we also hold a series of open weekends, just three times a year, where we are open to the general public. These events are usually in April, June and September. 

On these open days all are welcome to view and purchase plants and enjoy tea and cake in the garden.

In addition, we also host regular talks and group visits. Please check our Public News page  or subscribe to our Public Events Newsletter.
