We get many nice things said about our Nursery and Garden Centre but it always nice to get a quote from someone well known and famous!


James Wong presents BBC Countryfile and had his own very successful TV series called 'Grow Your Own Drugs'.


James is an ethnobotanists and believes fervently that we need to reconnect with plants and food.


James tweeted after he visited the nursery in spring 2013

"Awesome nursery, just as shame I don't live 100 miles closer"

Praise Indeed!


James' selection of less common edible plants that can be grown from seed and are available from Cleeve Nursery in the Suttons Seeds Homegrown Revolution range.
