Plant Nursery

The majority of the plants sold are propagated from the gardens, and many are rare or heritage varieties not usually found in garden centres. In some cases only a small number of plants have been grown so please phone to check availability before making a special visit. The number of varieties grown is constantly increasing, hence not all plants are in the catalogue.

Our specialities include collections of snowdrops, Michaelmas daisies (novi-belgii, nova-angliae and amellus) and hardy border Chrysanthemums which form part of the dispersed National Collection.

Pot sizes range from 9cm up to 3 litres and are priced accordingly from £3.00 – £6.50.

We do not offer a mail order service, but Chrysanthemums can be ordered, and collected in Spring – contact us at

Our full range can be found by clicking the nursery stocklist below and photographs of some of the varieties can be found on our catalogue page  Click here >>

A limited number of vegetable plants are available during spring. Small amounts of produce from the gardens are sold in the nursery including soft fruit, apples, pears and vegetables.

The plant nursery is open weekdays throughout the year and when the Gardens are open at weekends from April to October.
