Open Monday thru. Saturday 10am till 5.30pm/Dusk


Highwood Perennial Nurseries has been established on this site for 30yrs +.
I took over in 2005 and my partner, Steve joined in 2013.
As with most horticulturalists we have great passion for our plants and it is very much a way of life, not just a job for us.
We are relieved to be trading this year after such a tumultuous 2020 season!
The nursery is "Open" for collections and deliveries only, at present.
Once the situation on the Island has returned to pre-xmas Coronavirus levels, we will open fully again.
Our suppliers have been fantastic throughout the last year and they appear to be coming up trumps, with plant supplies, for the 2021 season.
We are in the process of updating the website for 2021 thus you should start receiving notifications on a regular basis.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all, again, once this vile virus has gone into recession!
Take care and be safe,
Lynn and Steve. Owners
