Garden Plants

Our plants, shrubs and trees for the garden change with the seasons and are a very comprehensive selection of what will grow successfully in North Devon.

This experience has been gained over the many years we have run our own nursery and plant propagation centre.

Our knowledgeable staff are always available for advice on all things horticultural. Whether you just need one plant to fill a border, a drift to show off their full potential or a well-positioned tree, we can help.

Flowering, fragrant, colourful, architectural, bold or subtle – we have it all.
