About Pickmere Nurseries

Pickmere Nurseries has over 35 years experience in growing perennials. Many are propagated from our own field production resulting in a consistent grade and quality. We also produce small quantities of rare varieties that may not always be listed so please fell free to enquire if you have a specific request and we'll do our best to help.

Our Plants

All our plants are labelled with full botanical information on the pot as well as bar code utilising our unique 90ml square stick on labels. This system overcomes the problem of lost labels and ensures plants are always correclty identified throughout the year. Plants may be pre-priced on request.

A Brief History

The nursery was established in 1976 supplying a handful of shops and garden centres with a range of 100 varieties of herbaceous plants, alpines and heathers. The business has developed over the years and now produces over 1200 varieties of perennials, grasses, ferns, bamboos, cordylines and phormiums: mostly 2 and 3 litre pots, backed by specimins in 5, 10, 15 and 25 litre pots. Our customers are located throughout Britain and include Garden Centres, Local Authorities, Landscape Contractors and Garden Designers.


The nursery moved to its present 2.5 hectare site in 1980, adding a further 3 hectares in 1990 (for field production). A cash & carry facility was opened in 2001 to meet changing market demand and offer more flexibility for our customers. The cash & carry also supplies a range of trees, shrubs and conifers purchased from other growers.
