About Us

Our journey began in 1984 when Peter sold cuttings and potted on seedlings outside his Uncle’s shop. In 1989 we then moved to our existing site and we haven’t stopped developing our ideas and improving our services since.

Over 30 years on and we are listed as one of the top 26 Garden Centres & Nurseries in the country*, renowned for our incredible selection of plants and trees, all of which are clearly annotated, and easy to find. The Nursery is fully stocked all year round, and we have all the plants you need to replenish and embellish your whole garden through each season.

As a family run business in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire we welcome customers from far and wide (some travelling over 100 miles just to visit us). Our Garden Club has over 10,000 members, and we welcome our loyal fan base week after week to enjoy a hot drink from our self-service coffee shop with a slice of locally made scrumptious cake either sat within our outdoor seating area amongst the beautiful flowers, or snuggled up in front of the log fire with a cosy cushion or two.

Our rustic and homely country shop contains sumptuous homewares and soft furnishings, from design houses such as Nkuku, St. Eval and Susie Watsons Designs. With great gift ideas, and gifts that you won’t want to give away, it’s a welcoming retreat to escape to.

And if, like us, you constantly want to know more about current trends, new ideas and concepts, and learn from the best, why not check out our full programme of garden and lifestyle events that we run throughout the year.  Workshops by gardening experts such as Rosie Hardy and Kate Gould (Chelsea gold winners), vegetable growing, the art of container planting, and crafts like willow weaving, plant photography and painting as well as our hands-on Christmas favourites, wreath making and centre table decorating; there is a course for everyone.

We have a great team of enthusiastic plants people who are always on hand to help. You will be overwhelmed by the passion for plants and friendly expert advice.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our Nursery and Country Shop.
