COVID 19 Update: The nursery will reopen on Thursday 15 July 2021

Updated on: Thursday 15 July 2021

Following an unexpected closure, we are looking forward to welcoming customers back to the nursery and gardens, which will re-open on Thursday 15 July as per our normal opening hours (Wednesday - Saturday, 10am - 6pm).

For our own safety and that of all customers, we ask anyone visiting the nursery to wear a mask throughout and to continue to observe Government guidance, particularly with regard social distancing and ask that you are considerate to other customers and our staff. We recommend payment via a contactless card wherever possible.

For those who would prefer to order in advance and arrange to collect, so as to minimise contact, we are happy to assist. Please email

As always, if you are travelling some distance to visit the nursery, we always recommend you contact us in advance in case for any reason the nursery is unexpectedly closed.

We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their continued support and very much look forward to the coming season.

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.

Our plants

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.
