Road Closure Lower Westwood for up to 3 days starting Monday 18th June
A small section of the road through Lower Westwood near the ‘pinch’ in the road will be closed for a few days from 18th June. If you are visiting Downside Nurseries from the Freshford direction, this won’t affect you; if coming from Bradford then you can take the first right turn after the pub to Upper Westwood and Avoncliff and at the top of the hill turn left. Continue through Upper Westwood and you’ll come to Downside to your left – some narrow sections, take care.
More than 3,000 herbaceous perennials, trees and shrubs from which to choose
Our aim is to supply you with a choice of the finest quality plants from more than 3000 varieties of herbaceous perennials, trees and shrubs that will thrive in your garden. We offer a larger range of plants and trees (specimen sizes) than you’d generally find at garden centres. Our selection includes:
Seasonal and Special Occasions
If you are looking for the best seasonal and special occasion flowers and shrubs of the highest quality you need look no further than Downside Nurseries. Whether you want to plant up a completely new garden, a border, or container for your patio, we’ll have just the right plants for you.
And if your scheme is ‘large’ and you’ll need hundreds of plants, please let us know ahead. If you need cutting material please let us know by the previous September, and seed-raised material by January at the latest.
Bringing You The Latest Varieties
Here at Downside, we regularly trial new varieties, testing for garden performance and disease resistance. Sometimes you can find a new variety of plant here well before it becomes generally available!
