A very unimpressive entrance to Mockridge Nurseries which belies the
top quality plants that they offer. A large range of plants at excellent prices lies
behind these doors.
This is a totally independent GardenAction opinion of the Mockridge
Nurseries at Ashton-under-Lyne, Cheshire. Click any
picture to enlarge it.
Mockridge Nurseries are 100% plants. No gift shop, no tools no toilets or
cafe, just plants and a few accessories. This allows them to do what they are best at,
growing top quality plants at rock bottom prices.
We came across them by accident when were visiting Notcutts at
Ashton-under-Lyne. Click here for our Notcutts
review. To get to Mockridge Nurseries from Norcutts, turn left at the Notcutts exit, left at
the traffic lights then left at the next set. Follow the unmade road bearing left. They are
about half a mile away.
A large proportion of Mockridge is under cover (see pictures below) which is
great for rainy days. They sell a huge range of top quality plants under plastic
greenhouses. Bedding plants, shrubs herbaceous plants, climbers and much more.
If they specialise in anything it's probably clematis but the range of
plants on offer is so large for a nursery that you'll find everything you want here.
They are a minute or so drive away from Notcutts and you'd be silly not to
visit Mockridge Nurseries before you go to Notcutts. Prices are on average about 50% cheaper
at this nursery compared to Notcutts and in almost every case the nursery plants are far
A simple price comparison for Houttuynia plants show they cost �2.25 at
Mockridges compared to �9 at Notcutts. Both are good quality with nursery
plants coming slightly on top.
Another price comparison is clematis. �4.50 at Mockridge Nurseries, �9.00 upwards at
Notcutts. And with clematis, the nursery plants are far higher quality. We show a small
picture gallery below of the nursery. Click any picture on this page to enlarge it.
