This web site (www.willowsnursery.co.uk) is the introduction to
our nursery.  From here you can visit our dedicated Hardy Cyclamen,
Living Willow, Dwarf Box and Segway sites. We also have a separate secure on line shop where you can buy our products.  Alternatively you
can telephone us to place your order or print and post an order form
from the individual sites.


Come to our Nursery and learn to ride a Segway. You can ‘glide’ around our gardens and have great fun enjoying a totally unique experience that has to be tried to be believed !  Try it for yourself or give it as an original birthday or anniversary gift.  To visit our dedicated Segway site . . .

We have our own stock plants for propagation, and our own willow beds provide cuttings of our best varieties of ‘functional’, weaving and ornamental willows - for you to grow windbreaks, attractive garden plants or to provide your own weaving material - and long willow whips, for you to create your own living willow structures and living willow sculptures. We also offer Willow whips in ‘kit’ form. These Willow kits contain all the whips needed to easily construct living willow domes, bowers, ‘fedges’, wigwams and much more. All come with complete instructions to simply construct these living willow structures in a very short period of time. To visit our Living Willow site  . .

All our cyclamen are grown here at the nursery from our own seed.  They are not “forced” for a quick turn-over but are grown slowly to produce firm corms (not full of water).  This way they transplant without suffering. Our collections of corms are particularly good value and can give a ‘drift’ of flowers in season (the best way to see them).  Our corms are often twice as old as others offered, and will have flowered at least one year here at Willows.  They can live for over 100 years so a good start is essential. We send out orders  bare-rooted and by First Class Post normally within 4 working days. To visit our Hardy Cyclamen site . . .

Our Dwarf Box plants are raised in nursery beds and despatched bare-rooted by First Class Post or Carrier, as appropriate. We sell plants that are a minimum of 7 to 10 cm (3 to 4”) high. To visit our dedicated dwarf box site  . . .

Willows Nursery is a small nursery owned and run by us
- Les & Anne Cordes. The name for the nursery came from a
weeping willow originally here on the bare field site when we arrived
here in 1992 with a long-term plan to grow a million Hardy Cyclamen
corms to sell by Mail Order !

We soon realised that we needed wind-breaks to protect our
greenhouses & shadehouses (our site is very exposed). We invested
in Willow cuttings to cure that problem  -- BUT  -- then we realised just
how varied interesting and useful willow is .  . .  !   So the Willow side
of the nursery was born.

At the same time Anne expanded her interest in Knot Gardens
although at the moment we only offer Dwarf Box plants for sale.

Whatever your interest, we offer top quality plants, all of which have
been grown here at our Nursery by ourselves. None are bought in.

And finally - there is our latest venture - Segway rides ! They are fun machines that almost anyone can use and have a really enjoyable experience. Our 18 acre site provides plenty of space and a mix of riding conditions for people to  enjoy - and they are also proving invaluable as a speedy way for us travel around the Nursery !

Please contact us if you need any details or
information that you cannot find on the web sites.
