About PlantsToPlant

What is PlantsToPlant?

PlantstoPlant.com is a new way to bring plants direct from us, the grower, to you, cutting out the middle man and offering you real choice. We are a collaboration working alongside Fromefield Nurseries Ltd in the production of an exciting range of young plants – in 9cm pots unless otherwise stated - brought to you at fantastic prices, directly via mail order here on the website and also via our eBay and Facebook shops.

Unlike a garden centre we do not only sell varieties that look good in the pot at point of sale, but rather we bring you a selection of plants for all seasons, and colour for all spaces, large or small, so that you can really show off and have a garden that looks good not only in spring but throughout the year. Please note, however, that the plants will not immediately resemble those in the accompanying images. In fact, depending on the plant in question and the time of year purchased, your plant may not even have foliage. If your purchase is planted and cared for as recommended in our planting instructions however, it will in time flourish and grow to resemble the illustration.

 
What is the pot size?

All of our plants are supplied in pots, unless specifically noted otherwise.  In most cases the pots are 3" or 9cm pots. 

 
Is PlantsToPlant a real Nursery?

PlantsToPlant.com is a parnership working alongside Fromefield Nurseries Ltd in the production of an exciting range of young plants. Most of our plants will be sourced and grown on the nursery, but from time to time we hope to bring you the best plants from other local suppliers also. In this respect, we are a ‘real' nursery, run by nurserymen, bringing you products direct. We aim to supply as much information as possible about the plants we list – far more than on the average plant label – to enable you to make informed choices about which plants are most suitable for the spaces you have available.

The Nursery has introduced many new plants to the trade since 1988, including the ‘Golden Jasmine' Jasminum officinale ‘Fiona Sunrise', Euphorbia ‘Excalibur', Festuca glauca ‘Golden Toupee' and Vitis coignetiae ‘Claret Cloak' to name a few. The Nursery has a strong customer base, which look to the Nursery for innovative and new plants which are grown to a precise specification and standard.

 
What does PlantsToPlant offer?

We will endeavour to introduce you to some really interesting plants - some unusual, some less so - but they will be chosen because they are special and give us pleasure, and in turn we would like to share that pleasure with you. Because of our excellent horticultural background and depth of knowledge, we are confident that the plants we are supplying are also of top quality.

Rather than specialising in any particular genre, we prefer to cover all bases where plants are concerned. We do perhaps grow more Perennials than any other plant type, but are not limited to them. We also grow Ferns, Grasses, Trees, Shrubs, Alpines and many others, but they will all be Unusually Good Plants.

 
What is the mission of PlantToPlant?

The enjoyment we all get from cultivating, nurturing and creating living green space cannot be easily explained, but it is well known that growing plants is therapeutic; indeed, many organisations offer the growing of plants and gardening as an alternative therapy. Probably the most important role of plants though is in the environment, and we all have to do our bit to protect it. Plants produce oxygenand absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during the process ofphotosynthesis. Put simply, the more plants we grow, the more we offset the damage we do to the environment by just being part of it.

Gardens have become, quite rightly, extensions of the home. The space you have is the room, and the plants are the wallpaper, paint and ornaments. We are like a DIY store, and supply the materials to decorate your extension.

Who runs PlantsToPlant?

Fromefield Nurseries Ltd is a wholesale company, specialising mainly in perennials, ornamental grasses and hardy ferns, and was started in 1988 by Nurseryman and Plant enthusiast David West.

The nursery supplies plants to retail and wholesale nurseries of all sizes as well as the landscape trade and also contract-grows for a number of high profile organisations.

We are one of the founder members, and were instrumental in the development of, ‘The Association of Liner Producers' (ALP), which evolved to improve the quality of UK grown nursery plants. The Nursery is also accredited by the ‘Buy with Confidence Scheme' run by Local Authorities throughout the UK. We are also members of the National Farmers Union (NFU) and the Horticultural Trades Association.

The nursery has a team of very knowledgeable and committed staff, and together we aim to grow the best. As well as the Nursery staff, David's wife Fiona helps out with much of the administration as well as getting her hands dirty potting many of the plants. The Nursery is a family enterprise.

 
Is the Nursery open to the public?

Because the Nursery is a busy production enterprise, we are not open to visitors. It is not because we do not like visitors; it is more of a practical exception. Not only is the Nursery very busy growing the plants on a day to day basis, but we are also in a very rural location and simply do not have the facilities or the relevant permissions.
