Please note, the nursery is NOT open for browsing. We are only open for the collection of orders, by prior arrangement. Please don't travel without contacting us first or you may have a wasted trip.

Whilst we are happy to post plants, we also welcome the collection of orders, which will save you the associated delivery charge. When we receive your order we will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time for your visit.

Due to the time it saves us not having to pack and post plants, we are able to offer a 10% discount for all orders collected from the nursery. Use code Collect15 in the checkout form to apply the discount. This discount is only valid for orders we do not have to post. This discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount or promotion.

To order for collection, complete the online order process as normal, but after you enter your address, choose 'I want to collect from the nursery' as the delivery option. This will avoid the delivery charge being applied. If you would prefer, you can simply email us your list of plants and pay by card when you collect. Please wait for us to contact you before turning up.

Why not make a day of it and visit one or more of the local attractions while you are in the area?


Stowe Gardens (National Trust) Approx 2 miles

The scale and beauty of Stowe have attracted visitors for over 300 years. Picture-perfect views, winding paths, lakeside walks and temples create a timeless landscape, reflecting the changing seasons. Full of hidden meaning, the gardens were created as an earthly paradise and still cast their spell today.



Evenley Wood Garden Approx 5 miles

Set amongst the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, this 60-acre privately owned woodland garden contains a large and notable collection of plants; ranging from unusual trees and shrubs to a wide selection of lilies and other bulbs. The garden's unusual band of acid soil, in this otherwise predominantly alkaline area, provides the opportunity to cultivate plants such as rhododendrons, camellias, and magnolias, which would not ordinarily thrive in this location.


Waddesdon Manor (National Trust) Approx 13 miles

Step back in time in the Victorian style gardens, gaze at flamboyant colours on the parterre amid the ornate fountains and statuary. Unearth the rare and exotic birds housed in the roccoco style Aviary found in the heart of the gardens or you can spend a fun filled day with the family, be an adventurer in the woodland playground which winds through the trees, making use of the natural environment to create a magical area to play.
