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, and there are many more seasonal pictures on our facebook page too.
SPRING IN THE NURSERY
New in for this season we are pleased to have a small number of young Red Huckleberries (Vaccinium parvifolium)! And at last some Salal (Gaultheria shallon), both plants need a lime free soil, the Salal thrives in woodland shade but the Red Hucks need plenty of sun. Please see the relevant pages for full details.
On special offer for the spring three for two we have our Chokeberries (Aronia melanocarpa and prunifolia), Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), both Treacleberries (Smilacina racemosa and stellata)...while stocks last
Price reduction on our Blue Beans (Decaisnea fargesii) for the season, down from £7.00 to £6.00!
Due to high demand some of our stock is running low, but most things listed as sold out should be available again later in the spring.
The Saskatoons (Amelanchier alnifolia) are flowering in abundance this year, fruit should be ready in June.
These bright yellow flowers usually first appear in February and then go on to produce a large crop of small juicy cherries in September
