Welcome to Thornhayes Nursery Website

Since establishment in 1991, a combination of plantsmanship and commercial growing skills resulted in the production at Thornhayes Nursery of one of the broadest ranges in the UK of broadleaf and coniferous amenity trees, hedging and choice shrubs, plus hundreds of tree fruit varieties.

As of May 31st 2019 the business is closing, as Kevin and Pat are retiring. They would like to thank the many customers professional and amateur who have purchased from the nursery over the years. Also their recommendations passed on to friends and colleagues, that we were “the place” to come. 

It is a satisfying thought that in nearly 28 years we have done our bit, along with the support of a loyal and skilled workforce, to make at least parts of Britain a leafier and more pleasant place.

Note that Kevin will be available for consultancy work from the autumn of this year.
