Welcome to Pottertons Nursery
NEW IMPROVED POSTAGE CHARGES for ALPINE ORDERS from £9.50
GREETINGS. Great news, we have renegotiated our Postal Charges with our courier who have offered new improved terms, see Terms of Business. Orders received this year with the old rate will be refunded the difference.
We are a traditional family run specialist nursery which grows and supplies an extensive selection of Alpines, Dwarf Bulbs and Woodland plants by Mail Order or at the many shows or lectures we attend, throughout UK and Europe.
The nursery was opened in 1971 and since then we have conducted our mail order business through our printed, fully descriptive catalogue in paper format, although the relatively recent boom in internet use has resulted in an increasing proportion of orders been taken through this web site. If you live in the UK and require a copy of our catalogue please send 6 x first class stamps with your address to the nursery.
Our current catalogues are included on this site and orders may be made using the secure on-line ordering systems. If you require advice or assistance contact the nursery by e-mail and you will receive a prompt reply. We can supply our full range by mail order to customers throughout the UK and Europe but no longer send outside of the EU.
We are extensively a mail order business but the nursery does have limited opening. In winter from Tuesday to Friday from 10.00am till 3.30pm until mid February and Tuesday to Saturday from 10.am to 4pm from mid February until mid October. Pre-booked, confirmed orders may be collected on a visit and friendly advice or assistance is offered.
You may also walk freely around our extensively planted landscaped gardens which includes large rockeries, raised walls, troughs, island beds and woodland garden. A special NGS event will take place in 2014 on the weekend of 7 / 8 June, all welcome with admission proceeds donated to charity.
