At the nursery
We are a husband and wife team who have been running our small nursery for the past 16 years. We love butterflies and have developed a plant list that will help to attract pollinators into your garden
The nursery is managed in an environmentally friendly way and we avoid nasty chemicals and sprays that would be detrimental to our healthy population of butterflies: 25 species have been identified. The diversity of wildlife at the nursery manages any pests: ladybirds for greenfly; thrushes, frogs, slowworms and a friendly hedgehog eat slugs and snails.
Not everyone has the space or the desire for a wildflower meadow but we can advise you on how to incorporate ‘garden worthy natives’ into both traditional and contemporary border designs, creating both beautiful and wildlife friendly gardens.
With over 38 years involved in horticulture and gardening, we offer Consultations on all aspects of garden care.
