One of the recent developments at the Gardens is the plant nursery. It is open to the public each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday between 9 am to 3 pm—filled with plants grown and nurtured by Friends of SHBG.
As all the plants for sale have been propagated from those growing in local gardens, we know that they will survive in your garden. The stock is an ever-evolving range and each week the volunteers tend to them under the watchful eye of professional horticulturists.
If you’re not sure what you are looking for, there is always a friendly face around to advise on the right kind of plant for that special corner in your garden. Some of our plants are quite rare—among the Friends are serious plant collectors who allow us to propagate from their stock.
Members of the public are invited to come and browse among the pots on our opening days when our volunteers are ready to help you.
The money raised from the nursery supports development of the Gardens.
