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 a great passion for our plants and it is very much a way of life, not just a job for us.
As a result of the Gales earlier in the year, 50% of our "Bays" have collapsed and we have lost our Poly-Tunnel and our Shed Roof - resulting in the loss of cuttings, "parent " plants and SPACE. This in turn causes a huge problem as we can not start our Bedding Plants ( Alyssum, Antirrhinum, Begonia, Dahlia, Geraniums, Impatiens, Lobelia, Marigolds, Petunia, Salvia and Cosmos) - thus ours will not be available until early May. (Pansies and Sweet Williams are available as they are a little tougher and can tolerate the cold)
Fortunately our Greenhouse is in tact with a good selection of Basket plants ready to go! We also have a good selection of Veg. plants available;-
Artichokes, Aubergines, Cucumbers, Courgettes, Squash, Runner Beans, Broad Beans, Peas and Tomatos
We are strong on our Perennial, Alpine and Trees/Fruit Trees and Hedging selections currently.
The good weather is encouraging us into ours gardens early this year; even allowing for the challenges we are up against, there is a huge number of plants already available to tempt you, here!
Please bear with us whilst we attempt to get the rest of the nursery into ship-shape order - we hope to be "ready" by Easter.
We are back to **7 days a week** until end of June. We will be Closed Saturday 16th April only,
over Easter - Friday, Sunday and Monday open as usual but 10am till 4pm opening hours. *** Check our main board for changes as the huge hike in fuel may force us to curtail our opening times*****
The Web site has not been updated since Summer 2021; I will be working on this over the next few weeks. Please call us for updates - the Landline is finally working- thanks to the fantastic Open reach guys!!!!
To combat the escalating costs of living -(energy and transport significantly affecting horticulture) we are offering upto
10% off a £30+ spend and 20% off an £80+ spend - (rounded up to the nearest whole £1.) This is across the board on Alpines, Basket plants, Herbs and Perennials.
Looking forward to seeing you all again for the 2022 season.
Lynn and Steve
