LAST UPDATED 3rd July 2020 - Order by Tuesday 7th July for delivery next week.

For the next two weeks, we have made the decision to slightly reduce the number of Alpine Collections we offer, in order to continue providing the highest quality plants and our best selection. 

As the seasons change, the plants we grow, propagate and divide change too. With the warmth from the last few weeks, 'warm season' grasses have emerged and now stand strong, enabling us to offer our 'Colourful Grass Range' of 'Spicy Reds', 'Cool Blues' and 'Laid Back Yellows'.

The pollinators on the nursery have welcomed the new landing platforms from the Summer flowering Alpines such as Helianthemums, Thymes, Erigeron and Pratia. As the Spring flowers have faded and set seed, these later flowering varieties have taken centre stage, bringing new collections such as 'Alpines for Cracks and Crevices', 'Alpines for a Mediterranean Design' and 'Dwarf English Lavender'.

  • Payment is online (we are now able to accept payment by debit card, credit card, paypal and bank transfer).

We have been growing alpines and grasses for over 30 years. With our small but invaluable team, we are passionate about our plants. Whilst the former rewards us with flowers in early spring; many grasses show off their beauty in late summer and autumn providing us with all-year round colour.

With our regular production of fresh stock plants and regular assessment on varieties grown, we propagate and grow our plants here in sunny (although sometimes windy) Lincolnshire. Some varieties have been with us since the 1980's and are truly cherished as must haves for the garden.

We sell wholesale and mail order. Plants can be delivered by trolley or by box. On offer at the moment, we have lots of special collections for you to choose from, including last year's best sellers - 20 alpines as chosen by Stephen and 15 grasses as chosen by Hayley.

For those of you wishing to make up your own alpine or grass collection, please request this week's list of available plants, which we will send by email. Either fill in our contact form or call us on 01775 640935.

Whilst we supply alpines and grasses for 52 weeks of the year, we also sell Christmas Trees in pots and as cut trees throughout November and December. Starting as seedlings on our nursery, our Nordmanii (non-drop), Norway Spruce and Blue Spruce are cared for all year round, ready for you to choose near Christmas.


We look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes,

Stephen and Hayley Willerton and Team.

Our alpines and grasses are:

1. Grown in the UK, in sunny Lincolnshire!

2. Well established and ready for planting.

3. Well packaged, with a label giving planting advice.

4. Available in Monthly Special Offers or from a list.
