As growers, Botanica has produced a superb and ever-expanding collection of trees, shrubs, climbers, herbaceous perennials, grasses, ferns, bamboos, herbs, roses, and conifers, including many rare and not commonly available for sale plants. This enviable selection is drawn from our own botanic collection and a lifetime collecting from other botanic and nursery sources.

We fully support the ban on the import of plants to prevent diseases entering this country, but we go a step further. As a nursery that grows only genuine English grown English provenance stock, we believe the way forward is for English nurseries to grow hedging, trees & fruit here in England. Our message to our customers is that if they want to be reassured that the plants they are buying are genuinely English, buy from Botanica.
We are registered and inspected by the Forestry Commission to produce plants from known British stock or from master trees that have been verified by them.
We are also regularly inspected by the Plant Health Inspectorate, (part of the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs DEFRA) who provide assurance that we are clear of disease. Our Plant Passport Number is UK107236.

Our plants are grown either naturally in the soil or, if container grown, using 100% peat free compost. We recognise that our customers are seeking environmentally friendly solutions and so, over 12 years ago we committed to going peat-free and have now developed our unique compost-blend which can successfully grow a wide range of plants.
As growers, we believe in running our nursery as close to nature as possible. For example, we have a policy of using natural predators when necessary and we also keep bees within the fruit areas to help pollination and maintain biodiversity.
