Rosudgeon, Penzance, Cornwall TR20 9AR
We grow a wide range of plants that thrive in the mild, wet, windy conditions typical of seaside areas. From hedging and shelter plants to the exotic and unusual we offer plants that are tough enough to make the amateurs’ garden to unusual enough to add something special for those that really know their plants. Among the many Australasian plants that we grow we stock a particularly wide range of Grevillea.

Whatton House Gardens, Long Whatton, Loughborough, Leicestershire LE12 5BG
Since the nursery opened, the range of hardy herbaceous perennials on offer has increased dramatically, and continues to do so. Check our database; it lists most of them and we aim to update it at regular intervals. Many of our perennials are unusual, although we also offer traditional cottage garden plants, and most are not difficult to grow. In addition, a small selection of half-hardy and tender plants is normally available as well as various flowering bulbs and, occasionally, a few annuals. Visitors are welcome to browse without commitment to buy, and to ask for care and planting advice.

County Park Nursery was started by Graham and Margaret Hutchins in 1955, and specialised New Zealand, Australian and Tasmanian plants, retaining some of the more unusual plants from other areas of the world.

Sleepers Stile Road, Cousley Wood, Wadhurst, East Sussex TN5 6QX
Our nursery is situated in 3 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside where we grow tropical plants, southern hemisphere plants and hardy plants, including lots of rare and exotic species. We grow every single plant on site and the goal is to have as many species as possible growing outside all year round. We are always adding new species and trying to breed hardiness and robustness into any borderline plants. We try to make our plants tough first and pretty second. We are self taught and take the view that plants don’t read books, so we try not to.

The Walled Garden, Frampton Court, Frampton-on-Severn, Gloucestershire, GL2 7EX
Pan-Global’ is a true plantsman’s nursery, providing an inspiring selection of the finest, most desirable and often rarest plants capable of growing on these isles. Trees, shrubs, climbers, bamboo, herbaceous, grasses, hardy exotics, many wild sourced, all personally chosen, and with an emphasis on correct naming, Pan Global’ has an enviable reputation. Many nurseries use the words ‘rare’ and ‘unusual’, but here we mean it in its true sense.
The Pink House, Gt. Green, Burgate, Diss IP22 1QL
My tiny nursery, within my quarter-acre garden, is full of small numbers of unusual plants that I sell at local plant fairs. Apart from the odd borderline subject they all have to fend for themselves in an exposed Suffolk setting; everything in the nursery lives in the garden too. I always have a range of New Zealand plants, especially examples from my Plant Heritage National Collection of Muehlenbeckia. Visitors are welcome but do contact me first.
TREVENA CROSS NURSERIES
phone 01736 763880 (Graham Jeffery)
Trevena Cross, Breage, Helston, Cornwall, TR13 9PY
Trevena Cross has been established for over 40 years and is still family owned and run. We are largest garden centre in the area and we grow 90% of the plants we sell on site. We specialise in southern hemisphere plants especially plants from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Our other large area of interest is providing plants for coastal and windy gardens.
Proteaceae and many other Southern Hemisphere species. The species available are selected because of their interesting stories, conservation value or the fact that their wild relatives or habitat really need some help. They are excess to the propagation for Robbie’s garden and are only available in small quantities with new species added as and when they become available.
A percentage of the sale of each plant goes towards plant conservation.
