We hope for the return of our PUBLIC OPEN WEEKENDS in 2021

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. 

Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, we were not able to hold these events in 2020 but hope they will return in some form for 2021. For instance, we held a pop-up at the nursery during September which proved very popular.

Normally, on our PUBLIC OPEN DAYS all are welcome to view and purchase plants and enjoy tea and cake in the garden.

We also host regular talks and group visits throughout the year, but again these have been put on hold for the meantime.
