Miserden Nursery
sign up to our newsletter
We are a traditional independent nursery offering a truly inspiring and comprehensive range of plants in a beautiful location high up in the Cotswold Hills.

Just a short drive from Cirencester, Stroud and Cheltenham, our nursery’s magnificent period glasshouses form a spectacular backdrop to our collection of plants, but also uniquely conjure up the atmosphere of a bygone age.

Miserden is a beautiful Cotswold village of honey coloured stone cottages overlooking the dramatic Golden Valley. It's an enchanting place and our site feels magical within it. You can feel that magic when you stroll around, surrounded by some stunning plants and equally stunning scenery. Not only do we have our own display borders, but these are framed by some of the best of the Cotswold countryside.

It’s not just our location that sets us apart, so too does our plant choice as we have the more unusual, as well as the traditional. We are particularly proud of our herbaceous perennials which have been grown on site (a giddy 800 feet up) with oodles of passion and care. So not only will you know where your new plants have been raised, you can be sure they are tough and hardy and well used to the local climate.

To complement our perennials, we also offer superb David Austin roses, alpines, clematis and climbers, ferns, herbs, shrubs, regal and scented pelargoniums and bedding plants.

Please check the our plants section for the latest new on our availability lists for 2017.

Hope to see you soon!

‘Growing exceptional plants in a magical setting’

Peat-free news!

We are now a stockist for peat-free Melcourt Sylvagrow composts. Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, the sustainable peat-free growing media is the only brand to have received Best Buy accolades in the last five reports on gardening compost from Which? Gardening. It follows our decision this year to grow our herbaceous perennials and bedding in peat free compost.

Charity support

This year we are supporting two great organisations. They are Ronan’s Trust which provides nurture and support to the bereaved through gardening projects, and the Museum in the Park in Stroud. Here we have a small range of plants for sale, with some of the proceeds contributing to the ongoing development of the museum’s recently unveiled Walled Garden.

We are open for the 2017 season

Our opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm. We are closed on Mondays but open on Bank Holidays.
