Open weekends

Open Weekends


The nursery is generally open by appointment Monday to Thursday, please ring to arrange a suitable time and date (call 07961 350053 – call backs can be requested). There are also several open weekends each year with discounts and free refreshments and one day plant sales. Visits from societies are welcomed and the nursery can cater for both lunches and teas. Please email us to be added to the open weekend email/postal alert list (please include a contact number).

We look forward to welcoming our friends & visitors back to the greenhouse during our first extended open weekends since lockdown – lots of new plants to see. Bring along your own plants for any advice and Laurence will be glad to help with any cultural tips or questions as usual.

As mentioned previously we will need to operate a rota system for time in the greenhouse, so could we ask you to please ring in advance on 07961 350053 or email with a call back contact number with your preferred day/time to visit – and we will do our best to accommodate you. We will also need to ensure we have your contact details when visiting, should we need to use track & trace procedures.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer light refreshments at this time but please feel free to bring along your own.

We look forward to seeing you all again and welcoming any new visitors.
