About Rowan

Having existed on the site for over 30 years. Alison took over in 2010 and has overseen extensive renovations, clearing condemned old green houses, installing large polytunnels, and refurbishing the site.
We grow shrubs and perennials, the vast majority of stock is UK sourced. We carefully select growers to work with, often specialists in their field. Once plants arrive we continue to nurture by hand watering, deadheading and generally loving. Besides stunning views the other benefit of our location is that the site is reasonably exposed which ensures that our plants are robust, healthy, totally gorgeous and are in peak condition for transfer to your garden.
There is always a knowledgeable member of staff close at hand to assist with plant selection and horticultural queries.
