Bridge Nursery has now been established for twenty years. We bought this flat, open field with great optimism. It has been challenging but the site has much more shelter now from the trees we planted in the early years. (We used to say it was www. which stood for wet, windy Warwickshire). The ground is gradually becoming more workable after plenty of compost has been added. We offer a range of plants which are mostly ‘bomb proof’ and many can be seen growing in the garden which is alternately waterlogged or extremely dry with deep cracks in the summer. Some of the plants we sell are a bit more unusual and may not be available in some of the other outlets.
All the plants are grown on site (this is a proper nursery) and is mainly done from cuttings and divisions with a few seed grown plants too. We use a mixture of peat based and peat-free composts mainly because not all plants thrive in the peat-free.
There is a down side and that is that we are twenty years older (obviously), and have reached an age when many of our contemporaries have retired. It gets harder to do the same amount of work as we could a while ago. Which is why a new project was started at the beginning of the year. See the page on garlic for more information.
We are open from 1st March to end October. Open on Thursdays, Friday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s plus Bank Holiday Monday’s from 10am-4pm.
As spring is fast upon us we are frantically beavering away propagating new plants and our stock will be increasing daily.
