Ashridge Nurseries goes peat and neonicotinoid free
Ashridge Nurseries goes peat and neonicotinoid free
Last month, Ashridge Nurseries took the decision to stop using neonicotinoid pesticides and peat-based composts.

It will make growing strong, pest-free plants just a little more difficult, but we think it's worth the effort. We hope you'll agree.

No peat or neonicotinoids at Ashridge Nurseries
A little summer planting? Something for the patio?
Pot-grown plants for summer planting
Most planting is done over winter, when plants are dormant. But sometimes, you need to fill that gap in the border, or maybe add a little extra pot to the terrace.

We've created a new section that shows you only container-grown plants, and only those we have in stock. We hope you find a little inspiration in there!

Our black, white and redcurrants are looking particularly vibrant after the cold spring.

Currants! And some berries too!
IMPORTANT! Keep newly planted trees and hedging well-watered
Water newly planted trees and hedging well
Warm, dry weather is a long-awaited, welcome change for us humans.

But for newly planted trees, hedging, bushes and shrubs, it can be a real killer.

Please make sure you water them well!
