Thank you to all who supported us this year we have now raised over £14,000 for ‘The Hospice at Home’. Our gardens and chapel will reopen again next spring.


We are pleased to announce that our restaurant will reopen at 9am on Wednesday 2nd December. We are now taking bookings- whether it be for brunch, a relaxing festive meal or afternoon tea give us a ring on 01931 712404. We have fitted patio heaters on our balcony so that you can eat ‘Al Fresco’ all year round. 


Please read this carefully if you are planning to visit:

  1. We have a one way system in place to enter and exit- the entrance is under the gatehouse and the exit is through the courtyard. DO NOT ENTER via the usual entrance. Black boards will be in place to guide you.
  2. Hand sanitiser is available on entry and exit points.
  3. We would kindly ask you to wear your mask at all times when on the premises.
  4. Trolleys will be available for use around the nursery. After use trolleys should be left out the front in the designated area and we will sanitise them before reuse.
  5. Please observe social distancing around the nursery and keep a 2 metre distance.
  6. On checkout please wait in the courtyard until the till is free. When free please wheel your trolley into the area and step back whilst your plants are scanned. Please be kind to our staff these rules are for everyones safety. 
  7. Because we grow so many plants it is physically impossible to put everything on display- so if there are specific things you require- either give us a ring or email the day before and we’ll do our best to bring the plants up for you.

Thank you for your support, patience and understanding.

Looking good this month

Hi Jo

I received the statues last week and they are fantastic - even better than i was expecting. The packaging was first class too.

Many thanks for our help and i am sure i will buy from you again in the future.

Best wishes 


Perfect !

My order arrived today and I just had to thank you for such excellent plants. It was a joy to unpack them. Also, they were brilliantly packed and arrived undamaged. Perfect ! 

Kind regards


Please thank everyone

Please thank everyone for selecting some very nice plants for me. They were delivered yesterday and I'm very impressed

Best wishes



I do think your service/ plants/ packing is of a high quality.


Dear Friends at Larch Cottage,

My shrubs arrived today – the first day possible from the instructions I sent you. Not only are the shrubs of brilliant quality, with flower buds for next season already showing, but I am just astounded at the effort that had gone into your packaging.  The plants arrived in perfect condition. I will definitely want to order more plants from yourselves.

Many thanks,


Thank you

Thank you for this order which was delivered yesterday. The plants are excellent and all arrived in good condition.


Good afternoon

I recently took delivery of the three plants I ordered from you.  Amazing plants, mature and fantastic size and the packaging was excellent.  I cannot fault either your service, your packaging or delivery in any way.  I just wish I didn’t live so far away as I would visit you as soon as possible!  

Kind regards and keep up the good work.


Much appreciate your service and my best wishes.

The shrub arrived this morning. Looking very good and leaves turning golden already.Thank you so much for sending so quickly after your note and tell call yesterday. V good of you and especially welcome arrival as someone here today who could plant it! I am 94 and alas sadly I am not able to do any gardening myself anymore. I hope it will give pleasure to lots of people for a long time to come..
