We are a mother and daughter team running a small specialist nursery in the heart of Somerset. Betweeen us we have many years of horticultural experience and we are really passionate about what we do. We are not open to the public but we exhibit at many plant fairs throughout the South West and are more than happy to bring along pre-ordered plants for you to collect. Just give us a few days notice. Check out our events page for a show near you! Alternatively why not try our fantastic new online shop?
We grow a range of beautifully scented perennials and shrubs and a range of wildflowers from around the British Isles. Our aim is to recapture the heady scents of borders of the past. So many plants these days have had all their fabulous perfumes bred out of them in favour of showier blooms in more unusual colourways. We don't believe in compromise! Borders should not only look fabulous but, hit you with wonderful fragrances before you even see them. From the wildly exotic Pineapple Tree to our gorgeous Red-Flowered Thyme or the Winter-flowering Christmas Box, we try to offer something a little different for all situations.
In much the same spirit we have witnessed the steady decline in British wildflowers in our hedgerows, fields and woodlands. (95% of all Britain's wildflower meadows have disappeared since 1945). Some of these native plants are perfect for a flower-rich meadow in a corner of your garden or for naturalising around gateways or under trees. Many of these unsung heroes of our countryside look equally fabulous in an informal border where they flower profusely in amongst perennials and some may even seed themselves around a little to fill in any gaps. And these guys are really tough too! If you have a spot in your garden where nothing will grow, I guarantee there will be something in here that will thrive and look superb!
All of our plants increase bio-diversity, provide all-important food and shelter for beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies and will help encourage birds back into your garden.
We hope that you get as much pleasure from our plants as we have had from growing them.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
