Classic cottage garden plants grown at Ellenbank are
sent to keen gardeners and public gardens all over the UK and abroad.
Plants for sale include a large collection of Violas, old favourites and
new varieties, some first raised on site. Other specialities include Hardy
Geraniums, Penstemons, Campanulas, Eryngiums, Primulas and Iris along
with hundreds of other delights and rarities.
In addition to the sales area, the half acre formal
garden, with its high curved wall provides a showcase for plants in their
mature form. At its best from mid-summer, the scents and colours of this
herbaceous garden can be memorable. Other stock beds allow plants spreading
room for propagation, and for trials of promising newcomers.
As a busy working nursery, not a garden centre, regular
opening times are restricted.
