The nursery was established in 1938 by Jack Drake. Today it is still a small family run business, where old fashioned production methods would be familiar to the founder. Amongst the many varieties of plants produced you may find heathers, gentians, meconopsis, irises, primulas and many plants for the rock garden, herbaceous border, pond or woodland margins. All the plants that we produce are allowed to grow slowly outside in production beds, where only the hardiest of plants survive (we drop to -20°C at times during our long winters).
You can also enjoy a walk through the wild and informal garden, and enjoy the varying seasonal colours.
