No visit is complete...

When you buy something from our gift shop or our plants area you are helping to maintain and develop Ness for years to come as well as supporting local businesses.

The shop is frequently refreshed with inspiring new products for the home and garden, and there's always a treat or two for you!  From local award-winning jams to British made wool blankets, books, cards, seasonal gifts and a wide range of garden and bird accessories, there is something for everyone.

Our plants area is run by a local nursey - Dovecote. Located nearby 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.  They also stock an extensive range of shrubs, herbs, alpines, and annuals, as well as a select range of pots and containers.

The Visitor Centre is also home to our second-hand book area, so do have a browse. All donations go directly towards maintaining and developing Ness Botanic Gardens.
