The plants we grow are 'wild' in the sense that they have not been selected or bred for any particular characteristic like some of our more familiar garden fruits. They are just as nature created them.
Our aim is to offer our customers a wide range of unusual fruiting plants, trees, shrubs and perennials including a number of natives, some that are otherwise quite difficult to come by and all produced here in the nursery. Something useful and different to provide variety for your sustainable food production, simply to make use of that awkward corner and shady spot, or to help fill up the wildlife garden
Please take a look through our pages and see what we have on offer to inspire and help you in your garden!
As well as our main pages (Trees, Large Shrubs, Small Shrubs, Perennials, Edible Flowers, Native and Tender), our COMPLETE PLANT LIST will hopefully help you locate a particular plant, only Latin names for the moment... or if you need help deciding what to grow and where, try our PLANT SELECTION page to give you a few ideas.
There are lots more seasonal pictures and you can keep up to date on our facebook page too.
PLEASE NOTE; sometimes my reply to the Email Order Form will go straight into your junk mail! If you don't hear from me within a day or so please do check, as I will always reply ASAP!
WINTER IN THE NURSERY
We apologise to our customers for our unusually low stock this year. Unfortunately we will not be able to re-stock as quickly as we would like, our re-location earlier this year has slowed our propagation down, though we hope in future years to be able to increase our stock overall.
Winter is the time when the Willow-Leaved Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae salicifolia) comes into its own.
There is always a good crop once the trees mature and the berries can sometimes hang on the tree till well into the new year. The fruit is acidic but delicious if sweetened, and full of vitamins and minerals. And there is more than enough for the blackbirds and fieldfares as well...
Please follow the links to the relevant page for full details and current stock levels.
We now have some Mashua tubers available, 3 for £5.00 plus postage (3 tubers being counted as 1 plant), there has also been a lot of enquiries about skirret, an ancient root vegetable that is becoming more popular. Our stocks are being increased at the moment and we should have more available in the spring.
