The nursery now has new owners!

We are delighted to be taking on the reins, and look forward to continuing and progressing the good work that has gone before. Look out for news of forthcoming events next spring!

Our Victorian walled garden is situated in the beautiful Northumberland countryside of the North Tyne Valley near the village of Wark. Visitors are welcome to enjoy, our labelled borders; packed with a wide range of plants of interest to both the plant enthusiast and the novice gardener.  All of our plants are nurtured in the Northumberland climate where they are fully hardy, and many of the plants growing in the garden are offered for sale. Plants can be grown to order and a border design service is available.  Specialities include hardy Geraniums, Eryngiums, Geums and Potentillas.
