About us

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 of 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.

Passionate about plants

Customer service – it drives everything we do in our growing business!

We pride ourselves in providing our customers with fairly priced homegrown plants, together with good advice and friendly, first class customer service. Our core values are being helpful to our customers, offering practical advice and excellent customer service, while maintaining a commitment to sustainable growing methods. We enjoy talking to our customers and will be pleased to help you with your plant enquiries.
