Ness Botanic Gardens announces partnership with Burton’s Dovecote Nurseries.

To mark the beginning of the 2018 season we are pleased to announce that Dovecote Nurseries will be running the plant sales area at Ness Botanic Gardens on an exclusive basis.

The plant sales area at Ness will be stocked with an extensive range of perennials, shrubs, herbs, alpines and annuals, as well as a select range of pots and containers.  Zoë Chapman, Business Manager at Ness Botanic Gardens said "Dovecote Nurseries have an enviable reputation and already supply some plants to the public areas of Ness.  We are very much looking forward to working with the Dovecote team to provide this welcome addition to our visitor experience."

Set on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Burton on the banks of the River Dee, Dovecote Nurseries has been in existence for over 30 years.  This traditional nursery prides itself on growing possibly the largest range of perennials on the Wirral, including many unusual varieties.  Dovecote are also one of the few remaining makers of traditionally made moss lined hanging baskets to both domestic and commercial customers on the Wirral and North Wales. They have gained RHS North West Britain in Bloom gold medals for their hanging baskets in Oxton Village for the last two consecutive years.

Philippa Harris, Dovecot Nurseries said "Having had a long standing relationship with Ness we are delighted to expand this further. This exciting new venture will offer visitors to Ness the opportunity to choose from our extensive range of quality plants grown at our nursery or sourced locally."

The plant sales area will be closed from 22 February 2018 for refurbishment and restocking. Dovecote Nurseries at Ness will open for business at 10.00am on 1 March 2018.

We look forward to seeing you all then!
