Best wishes and Happy Gardening……Margaret     🙂


We were thrilled to win Best in Show at the Dorset County Show in Sept 2016 in the mini show garden category with our ‘Casterbridge Cottage’ entry. It showed what a good assortment of perennials can be used to create a cottage garden and even included a cat on the cottage doorstep!

Look for us next to the Village Hall! We’ll be bringing the last few small perennials in 9cm/10cm that we always sell at the start of the planting season- Gaura Freefolk Rosy, Lobelia Queen Victoria, Salvia Caradonna, Scabious Kudo & whatever else we have…- 3 for £10 or £3.50 each.

Spring 2019

Welcome to the 2019 season!

It’s the 1st of February today and it’s a snow day-must say we rarely get enough snow here to severely disrupt life and the snow today is wet and melting fast. Very pretty to see though and interesting to watch all the different birds visiting the feeders in the back garden.


Our new plant season will start on April 14th with the first charity plant fair of the season to be held at Mapperton House near Beaminster, Dorchester, 10-4pm.

The nursery will be open to visitors between 10-4pm on Thurs & Friday at the end of April, depending on the weather.Any queries before then are, ofcourse, most welcome. Either email me on marg@northbrooknursery.co.uk or phone 01202695256 and I will be pleased to help if I can!

We will again be selling a good variety of plants this season, starting at the earlier events with a choice of the popular 9cm perennials-mix & match 3 for £10 or £3.50 each, alongside all the other larger perennials ranging from Tradescantia to Digitalis to Echinacea. A large percentage of our plants are essential food for bees, butterflies and all other insects. A lot can be grown in sun/part shade, some love full sun and we do have some suitable just for shade.

We hope to see you again soon!

Plant Fair at Mapperton House…

This coming Sunday, 16th Sept, is the date for our last plant event of this season to be held at Mapperton House near Beaminster between 10-4. Entry is £3 and the chosen charity is Cancer Research UK-such a worthwhile charity, so come and support their vital work.

This is always a popular event which finishes the season for many of the different nurseries that will be attending.

The Sawmill Cafe will be open for lunches and snacks and the gardens are very worth visiting too. Set in a peaceful valley, the main formal garden is down some steep steps and is planted with both exotics and interesting perennials.
