We are passionate about plants, and have a wide knowledge of all things horticultural. We are delighted to be able to advise you on your choice of plant when you visit us, but of course you may prefer to browse alone. We will happily leave you to wander round, but feel free to ask for advice should you require it. We feel that our plants are part of our family and we want them to go to good homes where they can be loved and cherished as much as they are in the nursery. Our plants are reasonably priced, not cheap or expensive, and the quality is high.
Please call in and see us - and see for yourselves the quality and range of plants we have.
We began our family business in 1981, as Windmill View Wholesale Nurseries, growing and supplying alpines to garden centres and nurseries around the country. In 2003, we decided to change direction, and now sell directly to the public through our plant centre. Landscaping and garden design companies are also very welcome. As we are growers, there is always a large range of stock available. We are not a garden centre, but a plant centre, and as such specialise in a huge range of hardy outdoor plants. We grow a lot of our own plants, and what we don't grow ourselves, we source from English nurseries. These are mostly from the fenland areas of Lincolnshire but we also buy trees from Worcestershire. Palm trees and other exotic plants have to be sourced from abroad but these form a very small part of our offering.
The nursery has a large outside sales area full of different varieties, including alpines, climbers, conifers, heathers, roses and much more, where you can enjoy browsing at leisure. There is also a large area which is undercover, where we display our larger plants, and also our range of Japanese acers. Another glasshouse is devoted entirely to bedding, patio plants,hanging baskets, and tubs. We have a spacious display area for herbaceous perennials and hostas. Our display gardens are open all year round, so customers can wander round and see shrubs in their mature state.
We aim to offer a wide range of hardy plants, in all sizes, all year round. Many different species are stocked including a large selection of fruit trees and ornamental trees.If you are looking for something particular, or something unusual, then try us first! We aim to cater both for those who like to watch their garden grow and develop, and also for those who prefer the instant effect.
In season, we sell bedding and basket plants including Surfinia, Fuchsia and Geranium. We also specialise in hanging baskets and tubs. We enjoy making up hanging baskets with different colour themes. Each basket is unique, we have many different styles of basket in stock and so many types of plants to put in them. A refilling service is available for your own baskets, please see the ' Hanging Baskets & Tubs' page for details.
Composts,gravels, and a range of sundries including seeds, fertilisers, weedkillers, lawn care and tree stakes are stocked, as well as a delightful selection of terracotta, glazed, and plastic pots. Please see the 'Sundries & Extra Items' page for information.
We have an ice cream freezer which is well stocked in the summer months with popular varieties including Magnum and lollipops, and also with locally made Thaymar Ice Cream.
We do not do home visits to plan or advise on planting , nor do we plant or maintain gardens.
