This family run nursery squeezes a huge range of shrubs into a compact site. The colourful stock ranges from the native UK species to the exotic that will survive in the north eastern climate. Worth a visit.

Many thanks Steve for your kind words...we like to share our Nursery Garden with everyone, giving out advice where needed. Our nursery stock is constantly changing so always something different to see here in the North Yorkshire Moors :)

In a quiet corner of Lealholm , not far from Whitby. This is a nursery with many plants and shrubs efficiently labelled well maintained. Lots to look at and buy and there's a cafe next door.

This place is an absolute gem. Situated in the beautiful village of Lealholm it is a sheer delight to walk round and enjoy the exuberance of the planting. It appears more like a cottage garden than a nursery with fancy bantams pecking up the pests....More
