Dove Cottage Nursery and Garden was conceived by us back in 1995. We opened Easter 1997. Our ethos has always been to enjoy our work, do a job to the best of our ability and use the best materials available. With this in mind over the years we have strived to create and maintain a 'special' nursery and garden which is home to a great range of perennials and grasses.
Our land is behind Dove Cottages on a north facing hillside enjoying panoramic views of Shibden valley, Chelsea valley and a hillside of mixed woodland.
The garden sits beside the nursery and is an intimate space enclosed by Yew hedges and green oak gates. Fully and beautifully planted with late summer flowering perennials and grasses providing flower well into the Autumn. The planting combinations are superb creating a look of wild beauty throughout Summer, Autumn and Winter.

Every September we treat ourselves to a 'plant hunting trip'. This year we visited nurseries and gardens in the Netherlands, Germany and Belguim see our face book page for pictures.
On these trips we buy 'mother' plants as they say in Holland for propagation, as the vast majority of our stock is home produced. We always return with new and interesting plants and seeds.
Please see our Nursery page for details of our mail order service. You can view or download our new catalogue as a pdf document, from our downloads page.
