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.  The number of varieties grown is constantly increasing, hence not all plants are in the catalogue. Some plants may be out of stock, so please phone or email before making a special visit.

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.

Prices range from £3.00 – £6.50, depending on pot size.

We do not offer a mail order service.

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.

Please note: Admission is free to the plant nursery for customers not wanting to visit the gardens.
