Previously we have only sold through Plant Fairs, Farmers Markets and Harrogate Flower Shows. Specialising in dark flowers and dark foliage and unusual perennials, we are now selling  direct to the public from the historic walled garden, once the kitchen garden for the now demolished  Rounton  Grange. Unused as a garden since the 1960’s, we are sympathetically restoring it as the site of our traditional style plant nursery. We are also reinstating original paths and features, replanting the walls with  fruit, and planting a large amount of vegetables and soft fruit. Working in co-operation with Roots Farm Shop & Cafe, our near neighbours, we will be providing them with the freshly grown fruit & vegetables, and cut flowers from the garden, and selling some directly from the garden in season.
So please call in and see us and experience the unique atmosphere of the working walled garden.

I have developed a passion for these plants over the last twenty years, and what started as a small collection in my own garden has grown into the large range on offer from my nursery today.

Many of the plants I sell are grown from seed and cuttings at the nursery. I have gained a City & Guilds 1&2 in Horticulture, National Certificate in Horticulture and Diploma in Garden Design.
