WELCOME to the website for NORTHBROOK NURSERY.
My plant hobby gone mad! 🙂
I love plants!
My name is Margaret Bailey and I have lived in Broadstone for 30 years.
I’ve always enjoyed all things horticultural- my parents were keen on growing all sorts, so I grew up growing a few easy annuals in a tiny flowerbed that they allocated me. As an adult, my Hubby and I have always enjoyed tramping around various horticultural shows, small and large..I’m always on the look-out for unusual perennials for the garden.
I’ve been growing and selling mainly perennial plants for about 20 years. I used to just sell once a year at a local 3 day fair and really enjoyed having a stall and meeting people, many of who come back each year to see what different plants I have on offer. I have a small 6×6′ greenhouse at the top of the garden which used to belong to my Mum years ago and which I just can’t bear to get rid of! A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to acquire a bigger 12×8′ greenhouse so now there is more room for lots more young plants in the spring and I have nice dry potting and office areas. Luxury!
8 years ago, I had to retire early from my job of 23 years in the NHS and used my new-found free time to try and expand my mini nursery at the top of my garden to sell to the public using mainly the Internet for publicity. I sell via Ebay too sometimes and I also sell mail order, if customers are prepared to pay for their plants with Paypal or cheque.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my website.
Have a ramble through Our Garden Year, showing some of the flowers and wildlife that call this garden home.
The Stock page lists most of the plants that are available to buy- I do sometimes have a few others.All my plants are protected against vine weevils and contain slow release fertiliser which will feed them in the pot for 8-9months. If you like what you see, please phone me to arrange a convenient time to visit as I don’t open every day, although on Thurs & Fri I will be open 10-4 from the end of April to the end of Sept (depending on the weather!)
I have included a page of pests which I have encountered in my own garden.
Lastly there are details on how to contact me and a map to show where we are, as we are tucked away in a quiet residential area.
Come and browse through my plants and perhaps enjoy the garden, especially if it’s a nice day! I will look forward to meeting you!
I welcome visitors to my little Garden Nursery. This season I am opening Thurs & Fri 10am-4pm,if you would like to come at another time, please phone first to arrange a time to visit.
