We are often open at other times during the winter, so please phone to make appontment. However if the gates are open, then please come on in!
The Plant Centre is based around a Victorain walled garden(which one day we hope to plant as an outdoor jungle). Most of our plants are grown on-site. Its not your usual A-Z of everything, we tend to grow plants we like, plants that work well in the garden, and plants which in many cases are crushingly unusual and madly exotic. The Plant Centre is a little bit of an adventure and customers have been known to get lost amongst the 7m high bamboos!
We are not just exotic. Come to us for large plants to form instant impact, or to cover a wall or a garage, or even your neighbours new extension.
We have thousands of plants from "normal" to "outrageous". In particular we specialize in Bamboos, Ferns, Tree Ferns, Cannas, Gingers, Agaves and other Cacti and Succulents, Palm Trees, Bananas and much more. We have a wide range of interesting shrubs, herbaceous perennials and trees, many of which are available as mature specimens.
If you would like help designing your garden or a border we would be happy to help but please call or email to check Rob is on the nursery he will happily spend an hour with you.
The rest of the Team...
As well as our team of helpers, you will notice many animals as you wander around. Come and meet the goats, guinea fowl, chickens, ducks, and even pigs.
The nursery cats "Desert" & "Jungle" are always roaming about and dogs "Elvis" and "Dino" love to play with visitors.
