We grow and sell unusual plants from all over the world including an amazing range of hardy herbaceous and rockery plants as well as many tender perennials for terrace and conservatory. Derry Watkins, author of two books on greenhouse gardening has introduced many new plants from her plant collecting trips to South Africa and elsewhere. She also teaches one day gardening courses at the nursery and lectures extensively.
The nursery (open daily March-October) is near Bath in southwest England, but we post seeds all over the world.
