welcome to our new website

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to open in February 2021 for Snowdrops and Hellebores but hope to be able to open on 1st April for the season depending on Government guidelines. 

However, the nursery are now offering a Click & Collect service – if you would like to order plants for collection or would like a list of available plants then please email:; they will let you know what is available, send a Paypal invoice and arrange a time for you to collect your plants. 

This beautiful garden at Coton Manor occupies a hillside position extending down from the 17th century manor house constructed of mellow Northamptonshire stone. The 10 acre garden has luxuriant borders that will delight the plant enthusiast while everyone will enjoy the garden’s charm and special atmosphere, with colour and interest throughout the seasons. Beyond the garden is a magical five acre bluebell wood and a wildflower meadow.

The Stableyard Cafe serves homemade lunches and teas when the garden is open. The extensive nursery has over a thousand varieties of plants, many of which are unusual and are propagated from the garden.

Too much to describe to anyone who has never visited. On top of all these delights there is a wonderful tea room and as for the variety of plants for sale!! Just go and see for yourself.​
