We also have a shop on site that stocks all the things you'd expect to find at your local nursery. We have a wide range of garden essentials such as tree ties, plant labels, wire and vine ties right through to wonderful watering cans and great gifts, and gift vouchers, for gardeners. We also have some gorgeous garden twines, pruners, loppers, plant food, child and pet safe garden care products, spades, forks as well as hosepipes and associated accessories. If you like your fires inside or out then we stock Certainly Wood's logs, flamers and kindling and as an alternative to logs for cooking on, we have Birchwood Forestry's pure hardwood charcoal in stock in either 3 or 6kg bags. Oh, and we also stock Humax multi-purpose and ericaceous compost and Melcourt 'RHS Endorsed' peat-free multi-purpose compost too12
A new arrival in the shop are Beebombs…these wildflower seedballs are handmade in Dorset from local clay and sifted top soil and are packed with a wide range of native wildflower seeds. They require no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year. Each pack can cover over 20 sq ft of ground which can create a wonderful wildflower habitat for both bees and butterflies.
We’re open 7 days a week, from 9-5 Monday to Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. Our cafe is open serving tea, coffee, soft drinks, cake and ice cream.
As well as our plants we also create beautiful potted displays. These can be made to order in pots either bought at the nursery or provided by you. We also do single flower or mixed flower hanging baskets heading into both Spring and Winter and are happy to take orders if you have any specific plant or colour themes in mind.

A brief history
The original nursery launched on this site in 1997 and was in the hands of the same owners until August 2015. It was then taken over by Michele and Simon who moved to Madley with their three boys, Harry, George & Jim. They re-named the nursery Madley Plants and opened the cafe in March 2016.
