Welcome to our online shop. We're a small business in Somerset, selling plants and seeds. We're particularly keen on native species. We sell woodland trees, hedging and hedge plants, wildflowers, garden "trees for bees", pond plants, heritage fruit trees, wildflower seed and bulbs. These come from nice British nurseries, growers and harvesters. We make regular donations from online sales to small science based UK conservation charities. Our plants look good and do good.
Habitat loss and fragmentation are at the heart of the decline in wildlife in the UK. We hope to help you make beautiful oases for nature - urban garden or large estate. Orchards, wildflower meadows, ponds, wetlands, hedges, woodland, wildlife gardens - these are vital for the future of nature here.
And we can all do our bit.
It can be difficult to know how to start though - there are lots of traps for the unwary.
Sometimes plants for sale are grown using pesticides which then harm the insects feeding from them. The wildflower seed business in the UK is hopelessly opaque and unregulated; quality and provenance vary enormously. Agricultural cultivars and non-native plants are often sold as "wildflowers". “Native” trees and hedging are routinely sourced from Europe, as are British fruit tree varieties. Pond plants are contaminated by invasive non-native weeds. How do you know what to buy and where it's from?
We’re proud to offer a top quality range from our lovely community of UK growers and harvesters, who will send your order directly to you to keep costs and emissions low. There's lots of expert advice here, and we're happy to field questions. We can even plant, seed or manage your project for you. Amateur gardener or professional landscaper, we can help you help nature.
