We are now able to offer vegetable and herb seeds by mail order. We have a limited range and we do not have a fancy ‘shopping basket’ on our web site but we have a seed list with descriptions of each variety and order form that you can download. You can edit, save and return the order form by email and we can either send you a PayPal request for the total, or we can check our stock and send you a confirmation of the total so that you can post us a cheque. You can also print and post it to us.

The forms are available below and on our NURSERY and GARDENS webpage.

COMING SOON:

Vegetable plants to order and collect (list will be available in the next couple of weeks)

Deliveries of pre ordered plants from our full range of perennials, veg, herbs – We are busy compiling a list of plants available and hope that this will be online in the next few days.

All orders will be handled under strict adherence to the government guidelines for sanitation & protection. Deliveries will be non contact and to a ‘safe place’. 

Due to the continuing spread of Coronavirus we have been putting some sensible measures in place to ensure the health and safety of our customers while they are here.

First and foremost we will be continuing to operate as normal unless nation wide measures prevent this. However, we will be operating a non contact greeting policy i.e. no ‘bisous’ (kissing on arrival and  leaving) and no hand shaking for the time being.

Amongst other heightened hygiene measures we will also temporarily be using paper towels for hand drying which we will dispose of by burning.

If anyone has any questions please ask. We hope to see you all as usual over the spring and summer months for lots of creativity and fun. We have lots of new courses and activities planned – we hope you enjoy them 🙂

Due to the exceptional rain that has fallen over the last couple of days we have taken the decision to open for a limited time tomorrow 7th March.

The water is beginning to subside but the track up to the nursery is still very muddy and slippery in places. As there is sunshine forecast for tomorrow we hope that this will help to dry out the field a little over the morning. Therefore we will open from 1pm-4pm.

We have our range of herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses, herbs and aromatics. (Vegetable plants, patio plants, tender perennials and our new range of perennials will be available from late April)

We have had a new delivery of compost and also sell vermiculite, horticultural fleece, enviromesh, pots and trays, seeds etc.

We hope to see you soon, if you do decide to come along tomorrow then wear wellies!

We hope to be back to normal next weekend.

Many people are familiar with the common honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum)- a climbing woodland plant with fragrant flowers that scent the evening air in early summer. Did you know that the genus Lonicera also contains what are known as the ‘shrubby honeysuckles’? There are several species of honeysuckle that form mounded shrubs, some are evergreen such as Lonicera nitida (a good alternative to box hedging if box blight has been a problem) and Lonicera pileata – a good ground cover plant. These two are grown more for their foliage and habit than their flowers which are much smaller than the classic climbing honeysuckle and with far less fragrance.

My favorite Lonicera if Lonicera x fragrantissima – as the name suggests it is highly fragrant, this semi-evergreen arching shrub produces pairs of scented flowers along the length of its stems from early January until early May. It is a stunning winter flowering plant that provides vital nectar and pollen for bees that get woken from hibernation on those sunny winter days. The sweet fragrance attracts the bees from a wide area and the flowers provides life saving nutrition for them. It is also a superb cut flower – one twig will fragrance a whole room.

Other winter wonders include the Hellebores, Sarcococca, Cornus and Hamamelis. Our nursery opens again  on Saturday 7th March for the 2020 season, we are open every Saturday from 10am-4pm until end October. Come along and enjoy a walk through our ‘winter border’ which is packed with ideas to add interest to the garden in the winter months. We have just a few Lonicera x fragrantissima left on the nursery, plenty of Hellebores, Cornus, Sarcococca, and lots of other winter/spring plants.
