Established in 1934, we are a family-run business with the majority of plants grown here on our nursery. We stock an extensive range of plants, including one of the largest selections of herbaceous perennials and alpines in the U.K. All our staff have plenty of horticultural knowledge and are always happy to provide  customers with helpful advice if needed. We are situated on the Cheshire/Manchester border, exactly one mile from Manchester Airport. Our Orchard Coffee Shop is open daily, serving snacks and light meals.

Our on-line plant database can be viewed on this site but is by no means exhaustive, as we are constantly adding new and unusual varieties to our range. If you are searching for a particular plant which we do not normally stock, we will gladly try to source it for you.
