Visit us for our Open weekends Saturday 22nd and Sunday 22rd June

It’s open weekend time again! We’ve been busy tidying the nursery and working in our garden in-between shows to get everything ready for you.

We will be holding our open days both Saturday and Sunday June 22nd and 23rd from 10am-4pm, and everyone is welcome to drop in.

There will be lots of plants for sale and refreshments as well. We will also have all our new awards out on display for you to have a look at. Feel free to wander around the nursery and see how we’ve done our own garden to get some ideas too.

We hope to see some of you here at the nursery for some gardening chats!

Newly Added Plants for Sale

Newly added Primula ‘Alison Holland’ are ready now and just starting to flower so you won’t have to wait after planting. This plant was a finalist in the Chelsea New plant of the year competition¬†and is very easy to grow.

Geranium ‘Rozanne’ are now available and looking great. These flower for a very long time keeping nice colour in your garden. Also easy to grow!

We add plants to the website as and when they are ready to be planted, so keep an eye out if you’re waiting on any varieties.

We will be adding our new Heucheras ‘Burgundy Bill’ and Heuchera ‘Cool Dude’ which we released this year at RHS Chelsea Flower show soon to the website as they are almost ready! Click the links to register for interest and get an email when these are ready.

Come see us at RHS Chatsworth!

This week we are at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, which is set on the stunning grounds of the Chatsworth estate. Find us in the Floral Marquee at stand 125.

We’ve got lots and lots of plants brought in for sale, and Lou Poo’s alpaca fertiliser to take home as well.

Lou’s Poo Alpaca Fertiliser For Sale

We are selling Lou’s Poo, an alpaca poo fertiliser, perfect for plants and all natural!

We will have the shredded version available at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show this week and hope to have it at subsequent shows this year as well.

It’s priced at ¬£10 a bag and lasts for ages, great for all the garden! We also have the liquid feed for ¬£5.00 per bottle.


We’ll let you know when it’s available in the web shop soon, but in the meantime, stop by our stand at this summer’s shows to grab yours!

Chelsea Flower Show 2019

Another year down at RHS Chelsea, and this year saw gorgeous weather for most of it! We ecstatically brought home our 11th gold Chelsea medal to add to our collection.

We went with an educational display, which still takes a few days to set up. Here’s some photos of our setting up process.

Having a well earned tea break!
The lovely Carol Klein on our display after filming for tonight’s programme on BBC2 Chelsea coverage talking about our new variety Heuchera ‘Burgundy Bil’l and showing in the picture Heuchera ‘Cool dude’ too! Also taking about our new Award of garden Merits at the RHS.

We met lots of lovely customers, and hopefully made some new ones! It was an eventful year, we even helped out another exhibitor finish their display due to an injury. As always we were flat out but loved meeting everyone and chatting about gardening.
