Planting Guide



A huge selection of cottage garden perennials and potted bulbs are available throughout Spring and it’s the perfect time to plant new roses.



Our greenhouses are packed with colour and plant choice for your summer gardens, containers and hanging baskets.



Choose from pansies and violas in every colour imaginable to polyanthus and bedding primrose, wallflowers to spring bulbs and late summer heathers.  



Hellebores come into their own, heucheras are unsurpassed for outstanding colour and heathers will flower until April. It’s the ideal time to plant hedging and potted bulbs are now available.

Excellent place for shrubs and plants. It’s still a proper nursery, not a coffee shop.

A most enjoyable visit to Capel Cottage Garden Nursery. A wide range of plants and garden ware, competitively priced and very knowledgeable friendly staff. As a dog owner, I completely support the move to ban dogs from inside the nursery. It's a shame the few ruin it for the many but it's a great nursery and it shouldn't deter anyone from making the trip. Great site improvements and keep up the good work.
