COVID 19 Update: The nursery is now open as usual (Wednesday to Saturday, 10am til 6pm)
Updated on: Wednesday 13 May 2020
We also continue to provide advice by email and if you prefer to assemble orders for payment over the phone and safe collection if you contact us in advance. We do not provide mail order.
If you do visit the nursery, we ask you to respect our safety and that of other customers by maintaining a safe distance from others at all times.
While we will be on hand to give advice, it is difficult to maintain the usual standard of service while also maintaining distancing - as such, we recommend you do as much research in advance and if you have a smartphone, you may find it helpful to bring with you and use it to answer any questions you have on plants you find at the nursery.
We will be maintaining a strict "one customer in the shop" at all times and we would would prefer payment by card where possible.
You are still welcome to visit the garden, for which we appreciate a donation to the National Gardens Scheme and their Help Our Nurses campaign. The NGS is likely to suffer an 80% reduction in income from their open garden programme this year, with many unable to open or offer teas. Any funds we can raise for this important cause is appreciated. Visit ngs.org.uk for further details and to visit Virtual Gardens online.
Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
Jean and Richard Wiseman
Ravensthorpe Nursery is a small, family-run business which has been growing and supplying trees, shrubs and perennials since 1986. Offering a wide range, including many unusual varieties, many of which can be seen growing in the garden.
The show garden
The show garden extends to about two acres surrounding the Nursery and has been developed over the past twenty or so years to show what the plants we grow look like in a garden setting, as well as acting as stock beds for propagation. There are beautiful views to be enjoyed as well.
We open the gardens once a year with others in the village to raise money for the National Gardens Scheme and are happy to arrange group visits here at other times for the same good cause - please call for details.
Here is a link to our list as it appears on the R.H.S. Find a Plant Site.
This is purely a list of the plants we hope to have available at some time during the year. (Not everything will be available all the time.) There are no descriptions or prices. Please e-mail us for details.
