About UsAbout Us
We are a family run business established in November 1988. Originally an alpine nursery , we now grow and stock a wide range of hardy plants with an extensive collection of alpines, ferns, perennials and camellias. The latter numbers 300+ varieties and is known as The Coghurst Camellia Collection.
We hope you will come and visit us and support us to make it the best year yet.
Our Christmas ideas will soon be put online.
We attend several shows through out the season as well including RHS Shows and the nursery is open to the public.
