Our Nursery

Here at Caves Folly  Nurseries we grow peat free organic plants. Perennials, herbs, alpines, and bulbs are grown in organic, peat free compost, making us a popular choice for the wildlife friendly gardener. Plants for sale are available from our mail order shop peatfreeplants.org.uk or directly by paying a visit to our plant nurseries.

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 then cared for alongside our organic stock and raised within the same organic principles.

In the plant nurseries we grow and supply a wonderful selection of herbaceous perennials, alpines, and bulb plants.
