About us - and the Nursery

Welcome to our internet site. We list a wide range of plants available for mail order or collection from the nursery. We are constantly looking for garden worthy plants be they new introductions or old friends brought back into production and they are added to the list as they become available during the season. We are always pleased to welcome visitors to our family run nursery situated at the edge of the Lincolnshire wolds near the market town of Alford. If you are looking for particular plants please always telephone before travelling to avoid disappointment. If you wish to collect an order placed through this list please give us a few days notice. Remember if a plant you are looking for is not listed just ask, you never know! The nursery has changed considerably over the last few years with new sales areas and improved benching. We are a production nursery producing the majority of plants we sell here. Our private garden is usually open for customers to walk around where many of our plants can be seen growing, please note the garden is closed every day at 4pm.We are particularly proud of the wildlife the garden attracts with many different birds and insects visiting during the year. Many of the plants used in the garden are particularly attractive to wildlife and everyone can play their part by planting at least a few varieties in their own gardens.

New for this year is the addition of some short video clips taken here at the nursery,just click on the play icon .More will be added as the year passes.  
Due to changes in the way the nursery operates we have regretfully found it necessary to permanently close our mail order services. We are still offering a pre-ordering service for click and collect and customers are of course still welcome to come and browse the plants we have on offer in the nursery as always. We look forward to welcoming new and old customers alike but please refer to our nursery opening times before visiting.
