smile Wow - what a weekend!
So good to welcome back so many 'friendly faces' after a long hard year of Covid restrictions. Sorry if I did not get round to chatting to you all but I am sure that we can make up lost time on your next visit.
To the many new visitors, some travelling especially from Brighton, London, Norfolk and beyond - we hope you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to seeing you again before too long.

e apologise for any disappointment but heading into our very busy time on the nursery we are unable to accept any further requests for this facility for the time being - will resume again in late summer.
The nursery is open for customers daily and orders can be collated for collection

PLEASE refer to our stock lists - if the plants aint listed we aint got them !! We are managing to maintain good stock levels of herbaceous perennials & grasses but shrubs & trees are now in very limited availability from our growers until the autumn.  

Enjoy your visit but in the interests of the safety of customers & staff .....
* please maintain at least 2m distancing & wear a face mask at all times
* plants are scanned outside the shop - contactless card payments available
* 1 customer only allowed in the shop at any time
* children must remain with their guardian at all times. Dogs currently not allowed.
* trollies, baskets and surfaces are regularly swabbed.
* we prefer customers not to use the toilet if at all possible

Order & collect at the gate & mail order facilities available for those not wishing to enter the site

Sorry we have now suspended this service until late summer - on site work now crying out for attention.

Busily potting up our liners from last years propagations + summer bulbs. Fresh deliveries of plants & sundries

* 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
