About the Wild Goose Nursery

We are a small independent nursery and garden housed within the old redbrick walls of a former kitchen garden, nestled in the beautiful Shropshire Hills.

We started the nursery as specialist growers of hardy perennial violas, but our passion for plants has always extended beyond this to encompass a wide range of flowering perennials and grasses. We offer an ever expanding plant list of exciting new perennial introductions and longstanding favourites. The garden here showcases these wonderful plants in exuberantly planted borders. The garden also functions as our stock beds from which we propagate. It is also where we continually test the garden worthiness of the plants we sell.

In our rapidly changing climate understanding first hand which plants are coping with stress best is hugely valuable, as is growing our plants in an environmentally sustainable way. As 95% of our stock is propagated on site from seed, cuttings and divisions, there are no air miles involved in the production of our plants. Our plants are also grown without the use of herbicides and pesticides and we grow all our perennial stock in peat free compost.

After the lecture we will serve the famous Hoby afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones, cakes and tea. There will also be an opportunity to visit Steve and Diane Horsfield’s garden
