Caves Folly Nurseries was established in 1979.Located in the village of Colwall, the nursery lies on the Herefordshire slopes of the Malvern Hills. We are, as far as we know, one of only a handful of commercial producers of organically grown Perennial plants in the UK. Plants are grown to Soil Association standards (Lic.no.G7379) in organic peat free compost.

Here in the plant nurseries we also sell plants grown in Peat Free, organic compost which are from a non-organic source (ie. plug or seed). These plants are cared for (within our S.A. regulations) the same way as all the others once they reach our nursery!

None of our Organically grown plants contain any chemicals such as neonicotinoids and are therefore totally bee and pollinator friendly.

We use  only Soil Association certified  compost.

 Some of our Wholesale customers include The National TrustNatural England, Garden Organic , Yeo Valley -Holt Farm Gardens, RSPB and The Royal Household.

In the plant nurseries we grow and supply a wonderful selection of Herbaceous perennials and Alpines
