We are very proud of our British growers who supply the majority of our fantastic plants.
Many of the nurseries we buy from for our clients are growers who win medals at RHS shows like Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court. They also supply plants for the award-winning show gardens at those events. In this way, we give you access to award-winning varieties and the best quality plants.
We hand-select all our plants from a network of specialist nurseries and this means that we can offer you the widest variety of alpines, perennials, shrubs, climbers, hedging, trees – much more than you would ever see in a garden centre or local nursery – and probably more than most landscape gardeners and garden designers as they tend to buy all their plants from one source.
We can also offer you unusual varieties and create a planting scheme which is really individual for your garden.
The Freshest Garden Plants
As we source our plants direct from the nursery, we can offer you the freshest plants. We buy to order for all our clients and Bob Mattei will actually hand-select your plants just before they are ready to be planted in your garden. If you buy plants from a garden centre, it is most likely that they will have been sitting in the nursery for some time. With our plants, they are cared for by our specialist nurseries and growers, who have all the latest irrigation and protection to ensure that the plants we buy for you are in top condition.
We buy from British nurseries and the vast majority of our plants are grown here in the UK. We can source stock from Europe, particularly large items like trees and mature hedging but we always recommend UK varieties as the first choice.
