“Decisions, decisions...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Well kept and well stocked. The nursery is beautifully laid out showing plants in their ideal situation with labels giving useful information. The plants which are for sale are in good condition and the nursery is very neat and weed free. The lady in charge was careful to point out which of the plants I'd purchased would need winter protection, extra care etc. If you like gardening and plants, you'll love this place. Parking in the village and roadside.

“Snow and sunshine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

On a day of sunshine and snow, a magical visit. The quality and care taken with the plants was outstanding and very much on a par with costs with more commercial centres. Service was brilliant. The nursery was like a large well kept back garden with all planted shrubs labelled. Easy parking a few yards away.

“Knowledgeable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2013

An absolute joy. A beautiful garden - worth a visit on its own. You can see many of the plants that are on sale. As there are planting dates, it's possible to get an idea what shrubs or trees will be like after a few years. Interesting stock. Always informative and helpful advice.

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

I like the casual atmosphere here. You can wander about freely without feeling pressurised to buy. It's outside & is full of plants, some of them very unusual.
