Meadow View Plants

Hello & welcome to Meadow View Plants! 


My name is Sue Gillon & I run a small nursery selling the traditional & the more unusual cottage garden plants. 

Group visits to our garden from gardening societies, U3A etc are recommended for the months of May, June & July when the herbaceous borders look at their best!


NEW FOR 2018  We have a new programme for 2018 which we hope our gardening visitors will really enjoy.

A pre booked visit will include an informal 30 to 40 minute presentation which you can choose from the list below, tea & delicious homemade cakes plus a stroll round our half acre garden. There will be a good selection of plants for sale too from our own little nursery area. The inclusive cost will be £7.50 per person.

Please allow around two & a half hours for your visit & please let me know if any of your members have dietary requirements, thank you.


Choice of presentations include:


1. Plants for problem places eg.clay/sandy soils, shady areas etc

2. A passion for perennials - how best to grow them, extending the season etc

3. 365 days of garden interest

We ask for a minimum number of 6 & a maximum number of 25 visitors for a garden visit, thank you.


WE SHALL ALSO BE RUNNING HALF DAY COURSES ON WEDNESDAYS DURING MAY, JUNE & JULY FROM 10.00AM TILL 1PM OR 1.30PM TILL 4.30 PM LOOKING AT THE ABOVE PRESENTATION TOPICS IN MUCH MORE DETAIL.
A pre booked visit will include an informal hour & a half presentation, tea & delicious homemade cakes plus a stroll round our half acre garden. There will be a good selection of plants for sale too from our own little nursery area. The inclusive cost will be £9.99 per person. A handout list of plants & information relevant to your presentation will be included.

These courses can be booked individually or with members of your gardening group. To ensure a personal approach they will only be ten places offered for each course.
Please let me know if any of you have dietary requirements, thank you.  More details to follow re dates but please email me with any queries, thank you.


We don't own a conventional nursery as such that you can walk around as the small nursery area is part of our garden & unfortunately we aren't available to welcome individual visitors on a daily basis. If you & a group of friends would like to visit please contact me. Have a look at our photographs!


Throughout the growing season my husband, Allan & I attend local plant fairs & flower shows in Lancashire & Cheshire.

We would like to welcome old & new visitors to our site.


We are sorry but visits to the garden & nursery are by appointment only & we ask you to contact us by phone or email. Thank you very much!


I can undertake small garden design & planting projects although I am unable to do hard landscaping. This would have to be undertaken by a contractor of your choice. I will visit your home & site to discuss your ideas, likes & dislikes to help you create your perfect garden. Please have a look at some of the photos of garden borders I have created for some of my clients recently.


***** YOU CAN PURCHASE OUR PLANTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AT MERE SANDS WOOD WILDLIFE TRUST AT RUFFORD EVERY DAY EXCEPT FOR MONDAYS ALTHOUGH THE WINTER RANGE IS MORE LIMITED *****


THANK YOU TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT & ENCOURAGEMENT


On Thursday 18th August 2016 Meadow View Plants was awarded a Silver Gilt medal for our first ever Floral marquee display & we are thrilled! Displaying in the prestigious floral marquee is a step up from our usual plant fairs & although challenging & very hard work, I really enjoyed the experience. Everyone has been very complimentary about the garden & on the first day of the show we sold a record amount of plants.

 I HOPE IF YOU VISIT US YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING "DIFFERENT" IN OUR PLANT SALES AREA, BUT IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER YOU PURCHASE A PLANT OR NOT, PLEASE FEEL YOU CAN COME & ENJOY OUR NEWLY CREATED GARDEN. IT'S AN ONGOING PROJECT!

  

Since August 2013 we have been very busy creating new flower borders & we have made a new nursery area containing some exciting new acquisitions & of course the old favourites.
