Yippee! Following the national shortage of container grown trees another large delivery of top quality UK grown fruit & ornamental trees have just arrived.


The nursery is 'full to the brim' with great looking, mostly UK and home grown plants and plenty of late summer colour.
Bean to cup coffee & tea available in the conservatory + cold drinks & snacks in the shop.

This is no time to be complacent and we continue to ask customers to maintain sensible social distancing and wear a face mask when in the shop area please. Trollies, baskets etc are swabbed regularly.
Herbaceous specialists - over 1500 varieties - many choice and rare, some grown from wild-collected seed.

* Large and interesting selection of shrubs, roses, climbers, trees, fruit etc
* Professional advice from enthusiastic & qualified plants-people - over 65 years collective experience
* Attractive, gently sloping site more like a large garden than a garden centre
* Established in 1983 by Alan Bidwell (still hanging in there!)
* A 4 acre wildlife meadow with wonderful views across the valley

Ashdon is a charming conservation village set within the rolling hills of NW Essex the borders of both Cambridgeshire and Suffolk only a (long) stones throw away. The old market town of Saffron Walden is 4 miles to the west

The nursery is looking great! Herbaceous stocks at an all time high, the beds brimming with colour  & insects. Large delivery of UK grown new season shrubs and climbers arrived this week and more expected shortly. After a long wait our delivery of hand crafted terracotta planters at very sensible prices has arrived..
Summer bedding now up to 50% off for a quick fix for a tired looking basket of pot.
Our new range of 'non addadive' cold drinks is proving to be very popular.
