Specialist Plant Centre

Mucklestone Nurseries is specialises in a complimentary range of plants better suited to the cooler, wetter, more acidic conditions of the north and west of Britain. 

 

shrops-mucklest-2Mucklestone Nurseries is a plant nursery set up by William and Louise Friend. Their main nursery and home is in Kent where they grow 'Mediterranean' plants, suited to the dry, exposed but mild micro-climate of the Isle of Thanet and chalk soils. At Mucklestone Nurseries they are able to grow a complimentary range of plants suited to the moister, more acidic conditions of the west and north of Britain, including a wide range of bamboos, trees. shrubs and perennials. The garden areas and arboretum extend around the Farmhouse, Nursery and Business centre areas allowing the maintenance of stocks of a wide range of plants of proven name, hardiness and suitability to the area for propagation. William compares the operation of his sites to the Oxford gardens and parks of his alma mater and the biblical Oasis of Ein Gedi , as both a community home and workplace amongst a living plant collection . The Ein Gedi kibbutz , by the dead sea, has built up a unique botanical collection of dessert plants from around the world.
