Kevin offers a help line direct to him on any plants bought at the nursery, so you are assured the plant will grow healthily.
Kevin also offers advice on plants we sell at the nursery. (Note that this service is for our customers who are buying plants.) Take pictures of your garden on your phone, Ipad, bring them into the nursery, Kevin will discuss your garden and can show you the best plants for your garden. (limited to a few mins when we are busy.) Monday is the slowest day. The right plants for the right place, the size you want them to grow, let me suggest the plants that will grow in your soil, shade or sun.
We have many unusual plants and over 1000 plants for sale. From May 2016 we changed to peat free compost for home grown plants. The plants we sell are grown in the North West and have been grown in nurseries locally. Our plants are tough, hardy grown locally. We believe in customers service, horticultural advice and hope to create an atmosphere of friendly, enthusiastic chat about the plants we sell. Hardiness is an over used word. Many plants are hardy but they are planted in the wrong place. We want to explain the best place to grow plants, Soil, Drainage, Light, Sun, Shade. So that you plant in the perfect position.Personally:
I am qualified in botany, soil science and horticulture with thirty five years gardening experience and Two RHS Gold medals in the floral marque and Gold medal at Southport flower show. I have worked daily, self employed as a landscaper and maintenance gardener in some very beautiful gardens in Hale and in 2005 I worked with ‘Raymond Blanc’ at Le Maoir. At the weekend I love selling plants from Village Plants and propagating rare and scarce plants. I enjoy studying and writing about plants, I give evening lectures on various gardening subjects and I am now working on the study of the genus Stachyurus.
Our nursery, Village Plants, is our house garden. We are not a large nursery, but we can give you that personal one to one plant advice and service. I am ALWAYS here for advice and we pride ourselves in just selling plants, we don’t have ridiculous department store goods! we just sell plants, and before you ask, we don’t have a tea shop! WE SELL PLANTS.Our lifestyle change sees Myself, Kevin and my wife, Suzanne offering a personal service that the Garden Centres can only dream of. Our home grown and locally sourced hardy plants are the plants which used to be available thirty years ago but have now become lost to cultivation.The nursery has been revamped during the winter of 2017. We now have a larger sales area, a covered sales area and newly stocked borders. Our aim is to sell hardy plants grown here in our garden however we will be sourcing some particularly unusual plants from other local nurseries. We will also be selling bedding plants and will be planting up customers hanging baskets from May.
My philosophy is, The only source of knowledge is experience, (Albert Einstein.)
