About Us

Desert to Jungle was established in 2004 by Rob Gudge and Dave Root, two neighbours whom after a chance meeting one day decided to turn a shared passion for exotic plants into a business.

Now, 5 years later, the nursery has developed beyond all expectations and is now one of the Uk's leading growers of hardy exotic and architectural plants

Particular specialities are Bamboos with over 70 types, probably the largest selection of tree ferns in the UK, and 30+ different types of virus free Canna.

The nursery is predominantly retail based, although wholesale enquiries and trade cash and carry are welcomed.

We also specialise in contract growing for Shows, and have supplied many plants for Chelsea Show Gardens, including Andy Sturgeon, Flemmings Australia, and the Daily Telegraph.
