Top plants for spring 2019

As spring plants fly out of the nursery (we grow 90% of the plants we sell), we focus on our champions for spring 2019.

Beth Chatto's Plants & Gardens

7.5 acres of garden, based on ecological planting: the right place for the right place. Created by award-winning gardener, author and lecturer Beth Chatto OBE VMH, who won 10 gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show, in the 70s and 80s.

Now, they are an inspiration to gardeners and garden lovers and we welcome visitors from all over the world. We grow 90% of the plants we sell in the Nursery and stock over 2,000 varieties of plants. 

We are open every day, all year round, except at Christmas and the New Year.
