The nursery will re-open 12 April 2021 in line with government guidelines. Nurseries are currently not seen as essential unlike garden centres. We are currently offering click and collect from the nursery along with a small seasonal pop up barrow outside the nursery.
We have lots of new and exciting things planned for the coming season. Please follow us on our Social Media Pages for regular updates.
Keep Safe and See You Soon!
Please note due the UK leaving the EU on 31 December 2020 we are unable to Post any plants to areas outside of the UK mainland including the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland due to the massive increase in costs.
We are a small family run plant nursery located in the idyllic village of Tissington which is in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park. The village forms part of the larger Tissington Estate which has been in the Fitzherbert family for hundreds of years.
Housed in the estate's walled Old Kitchen Gardens, Tissington Nursery retains many interesting original features including two Victorian Foster & Pearson glasshouses, boiler house, potting shed and pump house.
The nursery is approx. 700ft (213m) above sea level and as you can imagine the winters are long and cold. During the extreme winter of 2010 we recorded night time temperatures of -25 Deg Celsius.
All of our perennials are grown on the nursery using Melcourt Sylvamix Peat Free Compost. The plants we produce (with a few exceptions) are hardy in Tissington and should do well in your garden.

In the summer of 2017 we attended our first RHS show at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. We were very proud to put on a display in the Devonshire Floral Marquee and even prouder to win a Silver Medal. Our display was named 'Stepping Into The Peak District' and was inspired by our surroundings at Tissington.
In 2019 we had a mini 'signal box' taking our theme as the Railway that used to run behind the nursery and is now home to the Tissington Trail.
