Welcome

Our online shop will now open on Sunday 28 February 2021 (or as soon as weather permits).

 

We will be opening the shop every Sunday and then closing it once we reach our weekly limit of orders. That way we avoid a backlog of orders building up and can send plants out with as little delay as possible.

 

We had opened the shop on 1 February but the weather up here at nearly 1000ft is proving difficult. Our plants are either under snow or frozen to the ground, and the forecast for the next few weeks looks like more of the same, so we’ve decided to re-open at the end of this month instead (or as soon as the weather improves).

 

A massive thank-you to all our customers for keeping us in business through the pandemic. Apologies to our EU customers as because of the Brexit fiasco it is no longer viable to send plants to Europe. However we will always remain European in our hearts! .

 

Our gold medal winning alpine nursery is one of the UK's top five specialist growers of Alpines. Our passion is the tough plants that flourish in our Yorkshire garden… and therefore should in yours too. We're situated at nearly 1000ft in the Pennines, with an average yearly rainfall of 1200mm and have lost count of the number of times visitors have exclaimed “If it'll grow up here, it'll grow anywhere”.

 

Whether you're a beginner or enthusiast you'll find a wonderful selection of reliable and more unusual plants to tempt you. Our naturalistic garden (currently closed sorry) has interesting planted containers and troughs, rock and scree beds, a 100ft planted wall, woodland planting, ponds and two lovely new crevice gardens. Choose via our mail order shop and we'll deliver them to you with great care and attention. Best wishes and happy alpine growing!
