We continue to be open for business 7 days per week, 10 am - 5 pm.



HOWEVER, THE NURSERY WILL BE SHUT  SATURDAY 26 SEPTEMBER FROM 2PM, as we will be celebrating Ylva's Ordination to the Priesthood in Canterbury Cathedral!


Payment is contactless, whenever possible, or by card or cash. We supply hand sanitiser at the till for added hygiene and ask you to wear a mask while paying. Outside areas are fine to visit without a face covering. 


Our little Tower Tea Room is open again - seating is outside for reasons of social distancing, but the famous fruitcake is available, as always!


We are also still more than happy to accept local orders for delivery, either via our "Contact Us" tab, or via direct email to: We can drop your plants off in a designated place without any contact face-to-face, or just observe strict social distancing. 


I have uploaded the latest catalogue, and will also happily send a current stock sheet in Excel format upon request.


I am also happy to carry on creating planting schemes and other aspects of garden design.
