Bluebell Arboretum & Nursery

Ashby de la Zouch Leicestershire England
Description : 

Bluebell Nursery - Acer palmatum OsakazukiBluebell Arboretum and Nursery - Spring in gardensBluebell Arboretum and Nursery - Autumn Colour 3

One of the finest collections of unusual trees and shrubs in Derbyshire, planting in our beautiful woodland garden was started in 1992 and the gardens now cover an area of nine acres.

We are a RHS partner garden and although most of the large trees are still young with the majority at under 22 years of age, many of the shrubs and smaller trees already show their full beauty of form and habit and the arboretum has become a beautiful woodland walk with rare plant treasures on display to entice the real enthusiast!

There are many educational signs on display giving detailed information about the unusual plants in the gardens.

Most of the plants in the gardens are available for sale from our adjoining nursery as young specimens and expert staff are on hand to give information and advice'

Admission Charge:
Adults - £5.00 each
Concessions - £4.00 each (over 60's, students & disabled)
(Children & teenagers under 18 free)

With the exception of guide dogs, animals must be left in the owner's car, water bowls will be provided on request.

Tea and coffee is available from the nursery office on request (no cafe). 

Paying visitors are welcome to bring picnics but we are not a park and so there are no tables or bins. All rubbish must be taken with you.

IMPORTANT - Please be aware that despite our name, we are not a bluebell wood! We are called Bluebell Arboretum and Nursery as when the nursery started in 1979, we were in a different location right next to a pub called the Bluebell in the local village of Blackfordby. We do have a huge collection of unusual trees and shrubs on display in the gardens but alas, few bluebells so far.

If you can't find a particular plant or require further information, please e-mail us at [email protected] or telephone our nursery office on (01530) 413700.
