TREGREHAN PLANT NURSERY
As well as producing plants for the garden, the nursery also has a policy of propagating other more popular plants for sale to the visitor. Behind the display glasshouse there is a dedicated propagation house for raising stock from seed and cuttings. Next to this there is a large historic growing on house that once was used as a stone fruit and pineapple house.
At the garden entrance there is a small sales area where a selection of plants are displayed. There isn't enough room for all the stock so it is always worth asking a member of staff if there is a specific plant somewhere else in the propagation system.
There is usually a range of camellias for sale including some of the Carlyon hybrids. Also available are bare root rhododendrons which will need careful handling, and other woody trees and shrubs that are suitable for milder gardens. When raising a batch of rare seed, surplus seedlings are potted on for sale as extras so there are often unusual items not seen in the average garden centre.
There is also a business selling unrooted camellia cuttings in wholesale amounts. These are sent all over the UK to liner and growing on nurseries. There is a list of cuttings available, please use the contact portal to request an email file to be sent through.
