Welcome to Madley Plants, thanks for visiting. We’re an independent, family-run nursery, growing and selling top quality British plants in Madley, Herefordshire
We don't specialise in any particular type of plants at the nursery, we try to have as broad a range on offer as we can, all sourced as locally as possible. Our focus is to be our area’s independent nursery that sells seasonal plants, is able to provide constructive help and advice and has a nice cafe to sit, relax and enjoy tea, coffee, cake and ice cream. If you're not sure what you're looking for, grab us for a chat and we can suggest different options that might work well in your garden. We're more than happy to help.
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 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. Oh, and we sell 60 litre bags of Humax multi-purpose compost too.
We’re open 7 days a week; from 9am until 5pm Monday to Saturday and between 10 and 4 on Sundays.

And on the plant side of things...
Our rose stock is looking lush; we've a nice mix of patio, shrub and climbing varieties. Our trees from Frank P Matthews are also in and we have a good selection of ornamental and fruit trees both large and small - something for any sized garden. Also, the hardy perennial range is looking great with a lovely choice of plants such as Dianthus, Carex, Hollyhock, Polemonium, Geum, Eryngium and Agapanthus to name a few. We also have a great selection of Italian plants including Box balls and pyramids, Bay standards and pyramids and Privet standards to provide that instant curve appeal.
Looking good this week are our new climbers; Clematis, Hydrangea, Jasmine, Grape and Passion Flower. And in the shrub/perennial range, Euphorbia 'Purpurea' and "Robbiae', Ceanothus 'Yankee Point', Spirea 'Grefsheim', Vinca 'Ralph Shugert', Anemone 'Bordeaux' and Photinia 'Red Robin'.

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.
