Buying plants for her garden...

What might you find?

Although the Arboretum is primarily a stage for the magnificent range of mature trees, over the last few years many new and existing areas have been planted or replanted, adding colour and interest to the Arboretum and gardens throughout the year.

Many rare and unusual plants from around the world have been and will be used, bringing the world of plants to the heart of England. 

How we grow our plants for sale...

In our range of glasshouses we propagate as many unusual plants as possible from seed and cuttings. 

All of the plants we sell can be seen within the gardens and especially the beds of flowers around the tea rooms.


A wide range of which will be for sale and this should hopefully include:

  • Penstemons and Alpines have become a speciality grown from all our own plants that can be seen all around the gardens
  • Species including Fritillaries, saxifrage, phlox and Aquilegias


"Great Value"

"We visited this wonderful Arboretum today, taking advantage of the half price admission, including a plant fair. It is definately worth the Full Admission price, if you like peace tranquility and stunning trees and gardens."
