A Little About Who We Are


  • Dawn is the beating heart of the nursery. A Plantswoman and propagator through and through she is never happier than when she is knee deep in plants and compost, listening to the Blackcap singing in the nursery hedge. Dawn was born and brought up on the  farm where our nursery is now situated and still plays an active part looking after the sheep flock.


  • Martin has been interested in plants from a boy. Having also been a programmer from an early age, the website is his responsibility  (although he may deny this when he periodically breaks it). His time is split between nursery and his other life as a sculptor



  • And this is Bramble. Useless at the potting bench but not bad as a doorbell.

  • We want the photographs and the information to be at the centre of this website. Lots of colour to inspire you and the right information to let you make an informed choice. To this end we are constantly adding more photographs of mature plants and lots of pictures of inspiring combinations. I’m striving to add several different pictures of each plant so you can see not only what the flower looks like, but also how it grows, wildlife it attracts and what it looks good with. Occasionally you will see a photograph of a very similar variety where I don’t yet have a mature plant picture but think a shot of something very similar is useful.
