Visiting us

We are open Tuesday - Sunday 9.30 until 5 

We are delighted to welcome you to our family run nursery. 

Costs - It is free to visit the nursery. If you are coming as a group we are happy to give you a free tour of the nursery .We give visitors a talk about what we do, plants of particular interest at the time of the visit and a look behind the scenes at areas not normally open to nursery visitors.  There is then time to browse through the sales areas and buy plants with us still available to answer questions and give advice.
Plants for collection - If you would like to browse our website and email or ring us with your plant list we are happy to get your plants ready for your visit.  This is a bonus to you if you are on a trip that is pushed for time especially as we have a large growing area.

About the nursery

 A small family run traditional nursery in a lovely environment and we are passionate about the plants we grow.  Our plants are hardy, grown naturally and grow well all over the country.  We are proud to grow a wide range of high quality plants including many unusual varieties of herbaceous perennials, shrubs, grasses, ferns, herbs and some wall shrubs and climbers.  We have larger collections of  traditional and unusual Paeonias, Astrantias and a large range of iris.  We are always happy to offer help and advice.  Why not sign up for our email newsletter, on our home page, to keep in touch with nursery news.

Places of Interest nearby - We are ideally situated between Levens Hall (famous for Topiary gardens) and Sizergh Castle (NT property) both within half a mile of the nursery.  Please note they are both closed on Fridays and Saturdays.  Slightly further away but well worth a visit is Holehird, the Lakeland Horticultural Society's ten acre hillside garden holding National Collections.  This is a wonderful garden to visit at any time of year, plants are well-labelled and well cared for by a dedicated group of volunteers.  Many plants bought from us have a home in these gardens.
