Coastal Plant Nursery
Our small family run nursery specialises in growing plants that thrive on the coast. It is tucked away behind the sand dunes of the Braunton Burrows biosphere reserve. The 3.5 acre plot was once part of the Braunton Bulb Farm (1923 -1969). The farm employed up to 300 people at peak season growing and picking cut flowers including Narcissus, Tulips and Iris, supplying major markets such as Covent Garden. The hedges here still come to life with yellow Narcissus in spring.
We are growing here now for the same reasons they did then. The lovely warm sandy soil and maritime microclimate help us grow the plants we love, both native and from around the globe.
Garden Design and Landscaping
We are fully qualified in garden design and have many years experience.
We can transform any outside space and specialise in low maintenance planting schemes for domestic and commercial customers.
We grow a great range of plants for pollinators and are establishing a wildflower meadow around the nursery. We use a sustainably produced peat reduced compost. We source from local businesses whenever we can.
Pot Recycling Scheme
For the last few seasons customers have been returning our pots after planting which we wash and reuse the following season (Our own pots only please). Customers are also welcome to take their plants bare root and leave the pots with us.
