Welcome to our website.
Here at The Front Gardeners nursery we cultivate a wide variety of Perennial, Annual and Biennial plants, mainly ones we really love, for sale to local gardeners in the Suffolk/north Essex area as weall as for display and sale at regional fairs and shows. We have chosen specific plants renowned for attracting bees, butterflies and other wildlife to the garden. We have a particular fondness for Digitalis, Fuchsias, Hostas, Lupins, Delphiniums and Alliums; growing a wide variety of each.
We are based in Long Melford, close to the Suffolk/Essex border, and try to attend as many regional shows and fairs in the area as time allows – see the Upcoming Fairs page for more details. We hope to see you at one or more of them!
Originating from a simple north facing front garden no more than 8 metres in length, we have continued to grow and are now producing more plants than ever before. With the aid of a new polytunnel, thanks to a nearby farmshop, once the plants are large enough to pot on to a minimum of 1ltr in size they are moved to this new area to allow them to grow in ideal conditions.
Please do get in contact if you have any specific plant requirements within the ranges that we supply. Plants are available for collection by appointment only and local delivery maybe possible.
Unfortunately the nursery is not open to the public but plant sales can be collected strictly by appointment only. Please contact us regarding specialist plants and to arrange collection. You can browse through the plants we have growing at the moment using by looking on ‘Our Plants’ page.
Thank you for taking your time to visit us here at The Front Gardeners.
