Plants are at the core of what we do. We aim to furnish Cornish and south-western gardens with a dependable and exciting range of plants for every aspect. We will find the right plants for you.


Welcome to the nursery! From shrubs and trees to raspberries and bedding, we have a wide range of first-class plants for your garden. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned gardener, our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team will be glad to help you make the right choice for your garden. So please don’t hesitate to ask one of us to assist you if you need some advice. There’s plenty to whet the appetite on these pages but the best thing of all is to pay us a visit


If you are coming to browse there’s plenty for you to see, from herbaceous perennials to an excellent range of shrubs and trees. We also run a Bespoke Tree Service, headed up by our tree-man Rob Crowle. Rob has worked here for nearly 25 years and he can always find the right tree for the job. He can also have it delivered to your door!

We are very keen to support local growers and whenever possible, plants are sourced in Cornwall. In fact we can even wave across the valley to one of our growers (Hello Ken!).

Café Menu

Our current menu has plenty of our classic dishes such as the sumptuous Bouillabaisse, as well as some new additions such as Cornish seafood dill pancakes.
As always, we strive to source as locally as possible and our dishes are freshly prepared on site daily. The only exception to this are our pasties, which are made by Simply Cornish in Penzance.
