Welcome to Big Plant Nursery


Thanks for visiting our website!  Following the government guidance and recent announcements we are delighted that we can remain operational – please do come and visit and please read the notes below.  


We are now open seven days a week 9-5 Monday to Saturday and 10-4 Sunday with a wide selection of the usual amazing plants, Christmas Trees and plenty of Christmas gift ideas including our fabulous Gift Vouchers.


We will continually review our opening days and times and keep the website up to date.  We continue to work with reduced staff and would appreciate your patience at this time.  Mail order and click and collect options remain available and we now also have a fabulous range of houseplants, cacti and indoor pots too.  We will be increasing our gift range and will also be selling Christmas Trees which we will offer on the nursery, on the website and via social media with various delivery options – more details to follow but some potted trees are already available on the nursery.

When visiting the nursery, please wear a mask when in contact with staff (inside or outside) and in undercover areas and allow safe social distancing even if wearing a mask – whatever your personal beliefs it’s critical that our staff remain safe so that our business can continue to operate.

Please pay by card wherever possible – it is very difficult for us to accept cash.  We do not accept cheques.  

If bringing children during your visit, please keep them with you at all times and do not allow them to run around the nursery or wander off.

A note about dogs – without wishing to cause any offence – pease do not allow your dog to urinate on the plants or on the pots – it damages the plants and our staff and other customers handle and buy the pots/plants.  Please also take any poo home with you in a bag – do not put it in our bins or leave it in the car park or on the nursery.  Dogs must be kept on very short leads at all times.

A note about us – we absolutely love our nursery and our plants and we feel so fortunate to be able to continue sharing it with our wonderful customers.  Please do keep us in mind for Christmas and gifts for loved ones and please know that your custom and support means a great deal to all of us.  Although we have reduced staff and it is a difficult situation we will continue to do our very best to provide amazing plants and a helpful informative service.  

We look forward to seeing you all soon and – stay safe everyone.
