What people say about us

"My plants were well-packaged, have arrived safely, look very healthy and have now been planted. Thank you for a very efficient service!"
RB, January 2024
"I came with a friend to visit your garden & arboretum for the first time to catch some autumnal colour. From the moment we entered to the moment we left, it was a lovely experience. The lady who took our money was so helpful & as it was our first visit gave us a detailed map & explained everything including safety as paths could be wet & slippery. We had a lovely time wandering around taking photos of things that caught our eye. The icing on the cake (excuse the pun) was the cuppa & slice of the wonderful lemon drizzle cake in your cafe to refresh us after our walk. I will definitely be visiting again in the spring."

"Liz and I so enjoyed Rupert’s amazing tour of your fabulous garden. Rupert’s knowledge of all the trees is fantastic and he combines the talk with humour which was very well received! We came to last year’s excellent tour and just wanted to repeat the experience and we were certainly not disappointed. We then enjoyed the pruning demonstration and here again we were so impressed with his knowledge. We are now about to plant the lovely Malus Transitoria crab apple tree which is in beautiful condition. This a most wonderful plant centre- Thank you again for a most enjoyable time."
