Welcome to Thornhayes Nursery Website

A combination of plantsmanship and commercial growing skills results in the production at Thornhayes Nursery of one of the broadest ranges in the UK. This range includes an extensive choice of broadleaf and coniferous amenity trees, hedging and choice shrubs, plus hundreds of tree fruit varieties.

Our trees are produced to a high quality, with emphasis on a sound root structure and a well formed crown, at a competitive price to appeal to both our wholesale and retail customers. All compost used at Thornhayes Nursery is totally peat-free.

Trees from Thornhayes Nursery are field and container grown, ranging from whip to heavy standard. We also offer multi-stemmed specimens, pleached trees, hedging including large plants for instant effect, clipped topiary and choice unusual shrubs.

The range we offer has been selected over 25 years for high resistance to pests and diseases and ability to perform well under the challenging conditions of the wet and windy South West.
