Behind every great garden is a good nursery!
As reliance on commercial nurseries is expensive, the Nursery uses cuttings, and plant division as well as seeds sourced from their native habitat and private gardens, to provide Government House garden stock. Plants are also sold to the public in the summer. The Friends use the proceeds to support the gardens.
Primulas and blue poppies are of special interest to the Nursery which also raises a range of deer-resistant plants suited for woodland gardens.
