The Nursery

The nurseries at Waterperry have been growing plants for over 80 years and our current nursery team have years of experience between them.

There are a wide range of herbaceous plants grown in the nursery some include snowdrops, fritillaries and cottage garden plants. Our most important crop and one we are renowned for growing is asters.

Almost all of our Waterperry-grown plants for sale in the Plant Centre can be seen flowering in the Gardens as they are propagated from our own, carefully nurtured stock beds in the Ornamental Gardens.

Waterperry-grown plants are guaranteed for a year and you can be sure of their pedigree. We grow them hard, without heating, which means they’re much tougher than many garden centre offerings.

We’re happy to provide for the trade or wholesale customers too. Just give us a call on 01844 339226.


We regularly run courses and practical workshops where students are invited to go into the nursery to see first hand what they could achieve.

Our course brochure is produced each summer for the following academic year.
