After 83 years at our previous site, we were delighted to move in Autumn 2017 to our new nursery in the beautiful village of Styal and become part of the thriving local community.

We remain one of the last few independent retail nurseries in the area and, as growers, are always happy to offer horticultural advice. Just tell us about the garden you would like, and we’ll do our best to suggest the best plant combinations to make it happen.

At Primrose Cottage Nursery is it all about the plants!

Despite the traditional nature of our business, we focus on keeping our plant range bang up to date, making sure it includes all the latest introductions so that we can offer an interesting and dynamic choice of plants whatever the season.

Our nursery is situated next door to the wonderful Earlam’s Community Shop & Cafe and opposite to the welcoming Ship Inn.

A few minutes walk from the nursery will take you to National Trust Quarry Bank, with its gardens, estate, mill, Apprentice House and other attractions.
