Bring a little Garden House magic to your garden
The plant sales area is well-stocked with plants that are sourced from specialist, local suppliers. It’s the perfect place to buy unusual plants that you won’t find in mainstream garden centres. We also stock a small range of carefully chosen plants, propagated from plants that grow in the garden.
If you need advice, our knowledgeable, well qualified staff are on hand to help. They love a horticultural challenge, so if you have tricky planting sites or challenging conditions they will be happy to find plants that will work for you.
Our plant history
The garden was created after the Second World War by Lionel and Katharine Fortescue. Lionel was well known for being ruthless with plants – they had to be perfect or they had to be removed. He also bred plants and there are many varieties widely cultivated today that have their origins at The Garden House. Look for ‘Fortescue’ and ‘Buckland’ in plant names as those were often used by him or our well known Hydrangea ‘Garden House Glory’.
We’re proud of the links to such a plantsman and the team take great care to offer the best plants and keep them in excellent condition.
Apart from the lovely gardens and the friendly staff, it is possible to buy excellent quality plants, some of which you won’t find elsewhere.
