Welcome to our online shop. We're a small business in Somerset which sells mostly plants and seeds - native species for woodland and hedging, wildflowers, exotic "trees for bees", pond plants, heritage fruit varieties, meadow seed and bulbs. We source them from nice British nurseries, growers and harvesters. Then we give half of our profits from online sales to small science based UK conservation charities.
Habitat loss and fragmentation are at the heart of the decline in wildlife in the UK. We want to help you make beautiful oases for nature, from urban gardens to large estates. Wildflower meadows, orchards, ponds, rivers, wetlands, hedges, woodland, wildlife gardens - these are some of our favourite things!
It’s difficult to know where to shop to realise your vision - 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 is opaque and unregulated; quality and provenance vary enormously. “Native” trees and hedging are routinely sourced from Europe, as are UK fruit tree varieties. Pond plants are often contaminated by invasive non-native weeds.
Don’t worry. 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. We can even plant, seed or manage your project for you. Whether you’re an amateur gardener or landscape professional, we can help you help nature.
