Chestnut Nurseries in
Chestnut Nurseries is definitely small compared to the
mega-garden centres springing up all over the UK. Where it wins however
is in concentrating on a small sector of the market. They provide a huge
selection of bedding plants, hanging baskets and a smaller selection of
beautifully kept shrubs. The garden centres and super stores simply do
not provide the range or the quality available at this Coventry nursery.
All the bedding plants and hanging baskets are grown and
potted up on site. Quite different to the majority of garden centres who
buy in from abroad and around the UK. If you have concerns about the
"carbon footprint" of the plants you buy, then this nursery is for you.

All the plants looked in great health, this nursery
provides one of the best displays we have seen to date.
The nursery started in 1945 and is now run by the grandson of the
founder. Experience shows in the quality of the plants.
Even more spectacular was the quality and beauty of
the hanging baskets, a speciality of Chestnut Nurseries.
If you want a hanging basket, forget the garden centres, they
simply are not in the same league.
Another picture just to try and illustrate how
healthy the plants looked.
The prices at this nursery are on a par with the big garden centres and
certainly reflect good value for money. You may well find cheaper plants
at the big super stores, but you will not get the quality.
There are no significant obstacles at Chestnut Nurseries however the
ground is a bit uneven in places. On the odd occasion there is also
gravel on the surface.

DATE OF LAST VISIT
A great nursery for all your bedding plants, the best nursery we have
visited for hanging basket. Give the big boys a miss, visit Chestnut
Nurseries for a change. Alternatively, visit Wyevale's nearby after you
have visited Chestnut Nursery. For bedding plants and hanging baskets
the difference is clear.
