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’re open 7 days a week, from 9-5 Monday to Saturday and 10-4 on Sundays.
What’s happening (we’ve got a competition running!) and looking good this week…Monday 20th May
Yay, it’s competition time here at Madley Plants! We thought about giving away plants, we thought about pots, we thought about trees but we didn’t know what you’d really like so we had to think of something else. So that YOU can choose what YOU want, we’re giving away £100 pounds of Madley Plants gift vouchers..the vouchers can be used for anything here at the nursery, from trees, bedding and shrubs to tea, coffee and cake - it’s up to you! We’re sure you know the rules, all you have to do is like and share the competition post and if you haven’t already, like our page on Facebook. You can also enter by liking, retweeting the post and following us on twitter or like the post and us on Instagram. The competition will run until 5pm on Saturday 25th May and we’ll announce the winner by 7pm that night. The vouchers will be ready to collect, and spend, from 10am on Sunday 26th. So, what are you waiting for?! Like and share the post and like our page - thank you and GOOD LUCK! Feel free to add a comment to any of the posts to let us know you’ve done your bit 😀 PS.

In other news…
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 too.
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.
