We are an RHS award-winning independent nursery in rural Bedfordshire, propagating and growing a large range of alstroemerias, peonies, other perennials, shrubs, alpines, herbs and impulse plants on our beautiful 5 acre nursery. Many or our interesting and unusual plant varieties are not commonly available commercially, so please ask us if you are looking for something special that’s currently not on our website – we may have it on the nursery.
It’s a growing business
We have a small, dynamic team who are passionate about plants. We adapt traditional methods with a modern twist and propagate nearly all of the plants we grow on site from seed, cutting or division.
