Welcome to Old Court Nurseries & The Picton Garden
We are a small family run plant nursery nestled on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills. Old Court Nurseries has specialised in Michaelmas daisies since 1906 and are holders of the Plant Heritage National Collection of over 430 varieties which are displayed in the charming 1.5-acre Picton Garden.
Winding paths take you round The Picton Garden which is full of unusual plants with something different around every corner. In late winter the star of the show is our collection of snowdrops accompanied by our Plant Heritage National Collection of Polypodiums, a wonderful genus of ferns. Later the heritage Narcissus and gorgeous Alliums take over. As summer advances the herbaceous plants really start to shine and autumn is the time for the Michaelmas daisies. All of which is complemented by a select collection of trees and shrubs.
Many of the plants seen in the garden can be purchased from the nursery. Almost everything is grown on site and we are proud to use the peat free Melcourt Sylvamix as our growing media.
Helen, Ross, Meriel, Paul and Maggie (our helpful collie) look forward to welcoming you to the nursery and garden.
