We have a wonderful free magazine called Cotswold Country Gardener and in it I found an advert for a plant nursery near me called Cotswold Garden Flowers. What a find!
It’s approached through the village of Wickhamford (lovely old village centre) and then you head down a narrow country lane.
First impression was great, they have display gardens too. They have taken full advantage of their land to create show borders featuring many perennials to reflect their stock. At the time I visited (late March), the hellebores were making a great display but wherever you looked there was something unusual peeping out at you.
There are greenhouses and polytunnels displaying the plants for sale and the selection was astounding. I’d recently been having trouble finding Bears Breeches but they had several varieties. This was also the case for euphorbia, heucheras and many other choice perennials. The selection of succulents was very tempting.
I’ll be visiting Cotswold Garden Flowers again and if you are looking for something that little bit unusual, I suggest you do too!
Cotswold Garden Flowers is located about 4 miles from Apple Tree Bed and Breakfast, Broadway, so an ideal base when visiting them.
