"Thanks for helping us find the plants we were looking for - and a few more that caught our eyes besides - amongst the great and varied selection on your nursery. We are very pleased with the plants and will doubtless be back for more. Good value all round.

- Mr Wheatley

I recently bought an Ilex Verticillata from you and just wanted to say I was very impressed with your service from the email update of stock availability to packaging of the plant and delivery. Thank you.

The Botanica Team


We pride ourselves on the range and variety of our plants, including many rare plants and trees that are not often found for sale elsewhere. We believe our extensive range is unrivalled. In our nursery covering over 20 acres, we grow over 5,500 species of plants and trees in a variety of sizes from young plants right through to semi-mature trees, shrubs and climbers. If you are searching for specimen sizes, then look no further.

All of our plants are English Grown. Botanica grows plants and trees bare root in the soil as nature intended as well as in our very own special 100% peat free compost developed by us. We do not import plants from the continent. We take care in creating, through our growing techniques, superior quality British grown plants. We are famed for our English grown plants preferring to grow our own and you can be assured that we do not import.

Organisations such as English Heritage, National Trust and parks, gardens and arboretums all over the UK agree with us and source their plants from Botanica.

If you buy your plants from us, we also provide a full design and planting service.

Alongside our planting service, we also offer a full Horticultural and Environmental Consultancy service throughout East Anglia via Jon Rose & Associates. This multi-faceted experience led practice can be a single point for all your horticultural, environmental and landscape consultancy requirements.
